Notepas is a fast native multiplatform text editor written in Lazarus and can be compiled for multiple platforms and widget sets using the advanced native Free Pascal Compiler. Aimed towards developers it is equipped with some functions usually not found in other text editors and introduces a couple of new exclusive features.

  • Cross--platform: currently Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
  • Single native compiled executable using platform native widget sets or cross-platform widget sets (QT and GTK2)
  • Clean, non-bloated and responsive user interface.
  • Portable, as settings are stored in a single XML-file.
  • Painless localization support using simple text files that can be loaded by the application at runtime (i18n using GetText).
