eFTE is an advanced programmers editor with goals of being lightweight, yet totally configurable.

eFTE is an advanced programmers editor with goals of being lightweight, yet totally configurable. support for user defined programming languages, menu systems and key bindings are provided with many common defaults already defined.

eFTE is still a new project, however, extended from the fte editor which was first released in 1995, so efte is tried and true with many features for the programmer/text editor.

Current Release: 2009-10-11 - 1.1 released, see Download for Binaries and Sources.



  • Multiple platform (Unixes, Mac OS X, Win32, OS/2 and others)
  • Multiple interfaces (X11, console, Windows console, OS/2 console and PM, Mac OS X console and GUI under development)

Standard features:

  • Multiple mode
  • User defined syntax highlighting
  • Split screen

less common features:

  • 100% configurable right down to every single key and menu. Multiple named keymaps for simple switching between mapping sets.
  • Advanced folding system
  • Gather all backups in one single place - or keep them in the same dir, as you prefer
  • Easily create new programming modes with syntax highlighting and auto indentation
  • Advanced templates activated by menu entry, hot key or abbreviation
Once you have acquired the source code via the SvnRepository or the Download page, installed a C++ compiler, and installed CMake you are ready to build eFTE. 

Linux, Mac OS X and other unix based systems.

$ cd efte
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ..
$ make
$ make install
That's it. You can see, we first changed to the efte directory, then made a new directory to house our build environment, build, then generated native Makefiles, cmake ..
Note: If you have problems with cmake reporting X11 not found, Xpm not found or use BUILD_CONSOLE=OFF, please ensure you have the development headers installed for X11, Xpm and ncurses. On Debian, this can be done as:
$ sudo apt-get install libX11-dev libXpm-dev libncurses-dev<br />
