Highlight Editor with LIght-weight rUntime environMent, or Helium, is a Blackberry 10 text editor designed for speed, performance and versatility. Packed with power and customizability, Helium is a must-have for any professional who works with text files.
Work in tabs
Open multiple files at once and easily switch between them. Or open the same file in different tabs and refer to its different parts.
Syntax highlight based on filetype
Mod-key shortcuts while editing
Ctrl-S for saving a file quickly on your PC? Well, in Helium, you can do that by pressing
S while holding
Enter+T lets you insert a tab, whereas
Enter+D deletes the current line. Almost everything in Helium has a keyboard shortcut, and most of them can be used as key-chords when you are busily typing away in the editor.
Undo and redo
…So no more worrying about losing changes.
Regex find and replace
Full Perl-style regular expressions in find. Capturing groups in replace. Hooray.
Executing scripts or previewing html
4 colorschemes and 20+ fonts
Helium includes popular colorschemes such as summerfruit and Tomorrow. It also ships with some of the best fonts, such as Dejavu Mono and Times New Roman.
Never wait for a file to be saved into your Dropbox again. Helium is good at multithreading - that means saving files in background, highlighting each document in a different routine, and not getting into your way so that you can keep on with your work for as long as possible.
