RedCar is a TextMate like editor for Linux which supports almost all scripting and programming languages. It is designed to be compatible with Textmate bundles (a work in progress) and is written almost entirely in Ruby - with some Vala thrown in for speed. Redcar is still in its infancy so please be gentle.
