I found two showstopper bugs in NicoEdit 2.0:
1. No syntax highlighting for Genie code.
2. No synax highlighting at all if a file is opened from the commandline.
That second one I discovered when right-clicked on a file in Rox and chose "Open in text editor".
I am sure that Nicolas will fix them, but as 4.3beta3 is immenent I have rolled back to Geany and NicoEdit 1.6 -- the latter is a simpler version of NicoEdit that is our Leafpad-replacement.

I have tried to create a "core" puppy only contain basic programs,for example:Terminal,text editor,Desktop tools,mount,network,Internet Tools,jwm....compulsory programs and so on,
I have created puppy by 3 more ways:edit pup_412.sfs files , unleased,woof. I was depressed is that I can not sure what PET packages are needed, and what PET packages are Optional, so I failed about 20 times,for I deleted the wrong PET packages. I only want to create a "core" systerm and put other unimportant programs into another sfs file.
so we can create puppy by anyones Basis of Interests and needs!
I request Professor Give me Details guidance,thanks for your Contribution to the puppy. It is a perfect small linux,we love it!
only because we come from different countries with different Languages, so some programs is not to be used Forever, and is will Waste some Spaces. I know it is a big work for me ,but I will insist on, so give the list which PET packages are needed!
thank you very much!

NicoEdit 2.0 testing
Suggest you include both Geany and NicoEdit 2 in beta 3 so the latter can be further tested. It's got to be done prior to final.

Why don't you try with the Barebones 4.21 first? It was built on unleashed and kept the vital minimum. You can find it in the forum at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=43924

I really use Geany a lot. Great IDE and text editor. I see NicoEdit as a good Leafpad replacement. But installing Geany is no hardship. Just very handy as it is.- Thanks!

Hi Guys, as Geany goes I had a look around at the repo and from series 2-4 the pet size went from 502kb -749kb, I'm just thinking maybe use Geany series 3 at 565kb its still a 200kb saving compressed and works basically the same. 200kb saving is a good amount.

Hi Barry and Other,
New version of NicoEdit (2.1)
This version correct the 2 bugs found by Barry !
Added: Syntax highlighting for Genie code.
Fix: Syntax highlighting when you open file through command line.
If you want the syntax highlighting for genie you must download "genie.lang" and place in your gtksourceview directory (usually /usr/share/gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs or found it), the file is located here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=131082
