Gedit Symbol Browser Plugin is a Ctags-based symbol browser plugin for Gedit, the GNOME text editor.

Gedit Symbol Browser Plugin is a plugin for Gedit based on Exuberant Ctags which parses source code and displays functions, classes, variables, and other symbols in a tree in the left pane. Double clicking the symbols jumps to that function in the source file.

Here are some key features of "Gedit Symbol Browser Plugin":

· Supports 34 programming languages (based on ctags)
· Symbols displayed in a tree grouped by symbol type
· Icons for symbols can be added for any symbol type ctags can parse
· Works with local and remote files (SSH, FTP, etc.)
· View symbols from active tab or from all opened documents
· Optionally show line number, programming language, and source file in the tree
· Double-click a symbol to jump to it in the source code


· GTK+ version 2.10.x
· Exuberant Ctags
· Gedit
