A cross-platform, reimplementation of Notepad++.

Though the application overall is stable and usable, it should not be considered safe for critically important work.

There are numerous bugs and half working implementations. Pull requests are greatly appreciated.



Packages are available for Windows, Linux, and MacOS.

Windows packages are available as an installer or a stand-alone zip file on the release page. The installer provides additional components such as an auto-updater and Windows context menu integration. You can easily install it with Winget:

winget install dail8859.NotepadNext

Linux packages can be obtained by downloading the stand-alone AppImage on the release page or by installing the flatpak by executing:

flatpak install flathub com.github.dail8859.NotepadNext

MacOS disk images can be downloaded from the release page.


Current development is done using Visual Studio 2022 and Qt v6.2+ on Windows. This is also known to build successfully on various Linux distributions and macOS. Other platforms/compilers should be usable with minor modifications.

If you are familiar with building C++ Qt desktop applications with Qt Creator, then this should be as simple as opening src/ and build/run the project.

If you are new to building C++ Qt desktop applications, there is a more detailed guide here.
