Gamma text editor is a new lightweight text editor that is currently in the development phase, and it is meant to be an alternative to Notepa++ (default text editor of Windows) and Gedit (default text editor of the GNOME desktop environment). The best part of the Gamma editor is that it can run of different platforms like Linux, Windows, and Mac if dependencies are installed. Gamma uses GTK3 (cross-platform GUI toolkit) and PyGObject, which is a Python package that provides bindings for GObject based libraries such as GTK, GStreamer, WebKitGTK, GLib, GIO, and many more.
