Review:

Kate works as an advanced and easy-to-use text editor supporting scriptable syntax highlighting, indentation and code folding for an amazing number of source files.

The program loads fast and runs stably. It allows for multiple saved sessions, each with numerous files and completes with a spell checker.

Other useful features include line numbers, block selection mode, configurable templates, text snippets, symbol viewers for C, C++ and Python, XML completion and validation, export to HTML and a built-in terminal.

Kate is part of the KDE project and available across multiple platforms via KDE packages from a Linux distribution, Kate on Windows and Kate on Mac.
