Is there an editor for linux which can cache files in it? Every time I started the Notepad++ on windows, it brought all files which I've left open (even unsaved files).

Unfortunately the Notepadqq doesn't brings up this function. Does anybody have a recommendation?

Notapadqq has caching as default. Is a pretty good alternative that does most of the things that Notepad++ does. Here is a the github repo.


I would suggest Atom Editor


if anything is missing, most likely you can find additional packages that will do what you want!


I'm not sure, but Geany (sudo apt-get install geany) restores previous files and tabs from last session.

Also you can install Notepad++ on wine if you like it.


You can also try Visual Studio Code for Linux. It has auto completition, words highlighting and themes, plugins, extensions...
