There is a new tool available for Sparkers: CudaText

What is CudaText?

CudaText is a free, open-source, cross-platform (runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS or FreeBSD) code editor written in Lazarus. It evolved from the previous editor named SynWrite which is no longer developed. It is extensible by Python add-ons (plugins, linters, code tree parsers, external tools). Syntax parser is feature-rich, based on EControl engine (though not as fast as in some competitors).

– Minimap. Micromap.
– Show unprinted whitespace.
– Support for many encodings.
– Customizable hotkeys.
– Binary/Hex viewer for files of unlimited size (can show 10 Gb logs).
– Correctly saves binary files.
