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 both the LXDE[2] Desktop environment and Xubuntu 11.10[3] and 12.04.[4]

Released under the terms of the GNU General Public License, Leafpad is free software.[5]

Features[edit]

Leafpad's features include a codeset option, auto codeset detection, an unlimited Undo/Redo feature,[6] and drag and drop capabilities.[7]

Leafpad has a small footprint compared to editors such as gedit or Kate.[6][8]
