What is PowerEditor?



  • In the source of Notepad++ on Github. What is the name PowerEditor? Something Notepad++ was forked from, or was it renamed along the road?

    My guess it is just a name for the folder that some code was put into when Notepad++ was first created. Someone developing needed a folder, “hmm, what should I name it? PowerEditor!”. That’s my guess but it would be interesting to know if there is some different reason for it. Probably only @donho knows.
