dartEdit is a nifty notepad replacement, that's really the aim along with a few useful features that we thought should go into a text editor. It can view a few different formats, (.txt,.ctd.rtf) etc as well as has syntax highlighted source code editing.
It's got a word counter and alarm/notification system for no frills writing solidily like for the November Writing Challenge, or the alike. We found it quite useful for focused writing in that way. It also has its own format that can be encrypted with a password and uses Blowfish Encryption.
We've specifically worked on this editor to make working with plain text based files easy. We've also made it capable of editing some of our special file formats including a demScribble editor that is great for focused writing.
With a few of the new features you can edit source code of various plain text based types and using external tools, (Easily integrated into editor), you can run a make file for compilation. Or working with dartTextGen project source files you could run the processor for generating you completed files, all from this editor.
It's got a lot of features but it can all be hidden away until you want it and has a nice menu system that's easy to navigate. But it's possible to hide it away and just focus on your task.
More features will be added as we find them useful to do so, this is a Dart Range product so it's no frills but that doesn't mean it can't be feature rich!
