jEdit Plugins

Although users have numerous reasons for loving jEdit, among the most unique perk of using jEdit is not having to download and install the plugins separately. A jEdit user can add, update and remove the plugins by using the Bundled Plug-in Manager from a working installation of jEdit. More generally, the common trait of all the jEdit plugins is the combination of UNIX, Windows and MacOS text editor functionality. These plugins can be supported by any machine with Java 1.6 or higher. All of them come with efficient keyboard shortcuts which makes the user’s life a lot easier. They have an inherent feature known as the “Register”, which ensures that the user can copy and paste with an unlimited number of keyboards. The contents of the “Register” are saved across all editing sessions without fail. They come with unlimited undo/ redo options and complete online help. Probably the most helpful and most unique universal features of these plugins include the “Kill Ring” and the “Markers”. The “Kill Ring” automatically remembers previously deleted texts and the “Markers” remember the positions of the files to be visited later.
