A powerful IDE for Gnome


Gnome is notorious for occasionally removing features that many users find useful. Gedit has an (unofficial) extension that allows the program's editor area to be divided into two parts. However, this no longer works in the current version of the Gnome desktop. Consequently, Builder's features come in handy here: The program can do everything that gedit can't.

Additionally, Builder's Preferences allow you to customize the IDE in detail – from a dark theme, through color schemes, fonts, line spacing, line breaks, to the scrolling behavior. Builder can also emulate keystrokes in the style of Vim, Emacs, or Sublime Text. Personally, I use Gnome Builder to write and edit articles for Linux Magazine.
