Subversion Access

Notepad++ Subversion repository can be checked out through SVN with the following instruction set:

svn co svn://

You can access to the sources code from the web interface as well:

Binary Translations

From Binary Translations page you could get the language you need.
Please refer to translate binary howto if you want to get more information.


From the v3.1, Notepad++ has the extension capacity - the plugin system. Please see Plugins HOWTO to learn how to install a plugin or/and how to develop a plugin.

A list of plugins is maintained on NpWiki++ and should be complete. You can use this list to add/update your plugins, but it may not be necessary - Plugin Manager plugin is included in Notepad++ release. It gets jobs done very well.

If you can not find the plugin you need, just make your own.

User Defined Language files

For some reasons that some languages are not supported by Notepad++, User Language Define System can help you out in this case. This system allows user to define his own language : not only the syntax highlighting keywords definition, but also the syntax folding keywords definition, comment keywords definition and the operators definition.

You can define your language via User Language Define Dialog. However, the language you need may be already defined by someone-else in this User Defined Language List.

Notepad Replacement

This is one of the most asked question in the forums. A lot of references are pointed in Make Notepad++ the Default TXT Editor page on NpWiki++.
