I have downloaded and installed Notepad++ and it is working fine. I hear it is open source. How do I see the source code?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a Notepad++ support question, not a question relevant to people who participate in open source projects. See this meta thread. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Jul 2 '15 at 17:05

The downloads page lists a source code download (the last download on the list). The link points to a GitHub release of the current version.

It's mostly written in C++, so you will need some method of compiling it if you want to run and modify it. Personally, I use MS Visual Studio 2013 because of its multi-language capabilities.

To be notified of when a new version of the source code comes out, you can watch the GitHub repository and a notification will be delivered to your GH account whenever it is updated.

The source code to notepad ++ can be downloaded here.

The link is the last bulletin under the download button.

Note, if you want to edit and run the product you will need to use a compiler.
