Beaver is an Early AdVanced EditoR. Beaver is a GTK+2 editor designed to be light-weight, modular and stylish. Beaver starts up fast and doesn't use a lot of memory. Beaver's only dependency is GTK+2, so no need to install other libraries eating your disk space. These things make Beaver very suitable for old computers and use in small Linux distributions. The Beaver core just supplies basic functionality and syntax highlighting. Additional functionality can be found in plugins, which are available on our Plugins page. This way, we make it possible for you to customize Beaver to your personal flavour.
