Leafpad is an open source text editor for Linux, BSD, and Maemo. Created with the focus of being a lightweight text editor with minimal dependencies, it is designed to be simple and easy-to-compile. Leafpad is the default text editor for LXDE Desktop environment, including Lubuntu up to version 18.04 LTS. After Lubuntu moved to the LXQt desktop Leafpad was replaced by FeatherPad.[3][4][5]

Released under the terms of the GNU General Public License, Leafpad is free software.[6]

Features[edit]

Leafpad's features include a codeset option, auto codeset detection, an unlimited Undo/Redo feature,[7] and drag and drop capabilities.[8]

Leafpad has a small footprint compared to editors such as gedit or Kate.[7][9]
