The Team


Who are the Kate & KWrite contributors?

Kate & KWrite and the underlying KTextEditor & KSyntaxHighlighting frameworks are created by a group of volunteers around the world. The same is true for this website.

Below is a periodically updated list of the contributors to the Git repositories containing the above named software components & website. As this list is purely based on the Git history of our repositories, it will be incomplete for otherwise submitted patches, etc.

The list is sorted by number of commits done by the individual contributors. This is by no means the best measure of the impact of their contributions, but gives some rough estimation about their level of involvement.

Don't forget the KDE Community!

Beside these explicitly named contributors to our text editor related components, a large portion of work is done by other members of the much broader KDE community.

This includes crucial work like:

  • developing the foundations we use, like KDE Frameworks
  • doing all internationalization and translation work for our projects
  • releasing our stuff
  • maintaining our infrastructure (GitLab, CI, ...)
  • supporting developer sprints

If you are not interested in joining our text editor related team, please take a look if you want to contribute to KDE. The KDE community is a very welcoming bunch of people.

If you are not able to contribute, you might be interested to donate. Whereas these donations are not directly targeted at specific development, they help to keep the overall KDE community going. For example some Kate related coding sprints were funded by the KDE e.V. based on these donations.
