This is not a CLR-based nor JVM-based IDE, but it is otherwise a nice lightweight IDE. The editing component is based on Scintilla.

A similar kind of IDE would be CodeLite.

Geany has a bona fide manual that you can quickly skim through to get tips.

Set Up

1) Under Menu > Tools > Configuration Files > filetype_extensions.conf Add this under [Extensions]:


2) Put filetypes.Cobra.conf in ~/.config/geany/filedefs

Note that this currently uses the "Python lexer mode" for Scintilla. Although not perfect, it's not bad. We could use a lexer mode for Scintilla which would then get reused in multiple projects.
