Notepad++ for Android



  • Hello
    My name is Wilfred from Apeldoorn (the Netherlands) and am looking for an Android version of this fantastic program. I am an amateur and create weekly databases for the various radio phones on DMR. To process and customize the data (about 150,000 contacts) Notepad + + on my Windows PC. However, I regularly use my smartphone to customize data. But that works badly. Therefore my question or Notepad + + is also available for Android. I don’t want to constantly close pages with advertising. Hopefully you will know more about this and have a solution to my problem. Sincerely, Wilfred PD1WP from Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.



  • The codebase for Notepad++ is Windows-API specific. To port Notepad++ to another platform (like Android, IOS, Linux, or Mac [without using a translation layer like WINE]) would be so much of a rewrite that it would cease to be Notepad++.



  • You may want to look at an open-source android text editor, a quick google search give something like this https://github.com/vmihalachi/turbo-editor



  • Hello, @Wilfred-Pontfoort

    It would have been better if NPP had a version to run on android but unfortunately it doesn’t! But there are many alternatives to run NPP on android.

    Try using this, which is similar to NPP : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.woop.notepad&hl=en_IN

    I hope above information will be useful for you.
    Thank you.
