Tepl - Text editor product line

Tepl is a library that eases the development of GtkSourceView-based text editors and IDEs. Tepl is the acronym for “Text editor product line”. It serves as an incubator for GtkSourceView.

Tepl was previously named Gtef (GTK+ text editor framework). The project has been renamed in June 2017 to have a more beautiful name. The end of Tepl is pronounced like in “apple”.

Amtk is now in a separate git repository (it was initially developed in Tepl).


  • A Multi Document Interface framework for GtkSourceView (core features done).

  • Better implementation of file loading and saving, with support for metadata (in progress).
  • Beginning of code folding implementation (but far from finished).
  • Various utility classes and functions.
