TKE – Excellent new Tcl/Tk Text Editor

If you are looking for an excellent new text editor, please check out TKE. It’s a new Tcl/Tk-based editor with many features similar to Sublime Text.

TKE has excellent documentation. However, it is a little bit tricky to install it on Ubuntu, because of some dependencies. To install the dependencies on Ubuntu, run:

sudo apt-get install tcl8.5 tk8.5 tclx8.4 tcllib tklib

Now, just follow the installation instructions in the TKE documentation. And remember to run the installation command with sudo. I installed to /usr/local without any problems.
