Experience of Geany — A lightweighted IDE

Geany’s homepage:

Well, since it’s lightweighted, it’s small and, above all, FAST. For personal user, I think it’s much faster than eclipse, and much easier to use than emacs.

It’s basic features:

syntax highlighting
code folding
code completion
auto completion of often used constructs like if, for and while
auto completion of XML and HTML tags
call tips
many supported filetypes like C, Java, PHP, HTML, Python, Perl, Pascal
symbol lists

It’s code completion function is of great help, and will help us a lot!

But there are problems. I’ve used this IDE for only a day, but the auto
indentation function can’t work correctly. For example:

for(i=0;i<10;i++) [press enter here]
[it should be indented like this]
[but not this]

or maybe it’s my problem.

If anyone works this problem out, please email me! Thanks.
