Today I will find the time to talk about two of the unsung heroes behind my work. Everyone who knows me knows, I use The Gimp for my photography post processing needs and RAWTherapee for the processing of the RAW files; but not many people know about what programs are responsible for my note taking, blog writing, web site designing. So here they are, gEdit and gWrite, two unsung heroes of the open source desktop.
gWrite displaying a document with text and an embedded image
gWrite displaying the HTML code for the embedded image …the image got converted into base64 code in order to be included directly into the HTML file and thus making the need for RTF (rich text format) pretty redundant.
gEdit with two files open; one HTML document and (showing) one CSS file. Note the syntax highlighting. gEdit supports some 40+ programming language and script type syntaxes.
