Kinesics Text Editor

The Kinesics Text Editor is a small, fast, efficient, portable text editor.

The design and size of the Kinesics Text Editor makes it ideal for:

  • Quick viewing and editing
  • It initializes much faster than development environments for quick viewing and editing of files.

  • Console based development
  • Some developers still prefer command line tools over integrated development environments.

  • Mobility
  • The Kinesics Text Editor requires no installation. It can be run across network shares or from removable media, without any system changes.

  • New Linux users
  • The Linux/Mac version provides some familiarity to Windows users as they configure and maintain non-Windows systems.
