Leafpad is a discontinued simple text editor written by Tarot Osuji using GTK+. It was initially released in 2004 and discontinued with the release of version 0.8.18.1 in 2010.
Features And Usability
Leafpad is a really simple text editor. It does not support spell checking or most other features found in modern text editor. It is, however, very small and efficient in terms of disk size and memory usage.
Leafpad was forked into Mousepad, the default text editor in the Xfce desktop environment, but that fork was later re-written from scratch. There are no Leafpad forks that carry actual code from Leafpad alive today.
The Leafpad website at tarot.freeshell.org/leafpad/ is still alive as of 2020.
