loads all source code files from a folder,
showing all content in one window.
It is used to browse, search and edit huge amounts of
source code, log files, documentation or CSV data
at high speed with the smallest possible effort.
It was developed to analyze industrial C++ automotive projects
with 50,000 files and more, but can be used with any
programming language (Java, PHP etc.) to find bugs faster
than with any IDE.

All In One Window: The Total Text Perspective.
Depeche View is the world's only application
that shows thousands of text files in a
single window, allowing a realtime flight
over huge amounts of text.
Classical Text Editor or IDE
- One tab per text file.
- Surfing over a thousand files not possible.
- All in one view, no tabs needed.
- Just click into the text, then drag
the mouse to fly over everything.
All In One Window, Three Times Side By Side.
Depeche View does not only show everything in one window,
it can also provide multiple points of view
to the same global text perspective, in multiple windows.
And that's what you need everyday:
read two parts of text side by side, no matter if it's
in the same file, or in two separate files -
to track dependencies between text,
or to quickly copy and modify text parts between files.
Forget about dragging window borders.
Depeche View comes with a fixed window layout.
New windows are created by a click on the
create view button,
and are arranged instantly side by side, as shown above -
because that's what everyone needs, everyday.
One Click Horizontal Tiling.
Click or press F2
to toggle horizontal tiling:
Again, no dragging of window borders.
Depeche View does what you need, instantly.
Find As You Type.
Why open a dialogue, then type something, then press ENTER
for every searched word? What a waste of time!
Depeche View finds everything instantly as you type.
Find As You Click.
If you want to search a word which is displayed already on screen,
most text editors offer to select this by a double click,
and then search it by some hot key.
This is a two step operation that actually requires three input events.
Repeated a hundred times a day, it's another waste of time.
With Depeche View, a single SHIFT+click on a word searches it
instantly, across all files, either in the current window,
or in a second window (by SHIFT+right click).
This allows realtime jumping through huge amounts of text,
searching many different words in the shortest possible time.
Filter Text In Realtime.
With Depeche View, you can list all search results instantly,
across all loaded text files.
To do so,
One Click Copy, Bookmark, or Edit.
Fast text research requires elimination of two-step operations.
In Depeche View, words or phrases can be copied to the clipboard
instantly by a single click, while keeping the CONTROL key pressed.
As soon as the CONTROL key is released, the phrase is copied.
The same applies to bookmarking: keep ALT pressed, click on a word, done.
And whereever you are, text can be edited with a double click
(default with active assistance mode),
or even just a single click (one click edit for advanced users).
One Click Interface Revolution.
Depeche View is proud to break with slow, cumbersome standards
used by classical text editors, Notepad/Word, or Intergrated
Development Environments. Instead, it comes with a unique
one-click user interface, optimized for one thing only -
speed, speed, and nothing but speed.
Of course, this requires a short training.
You have to remember three keys:
- SHIFT key together with a mouse button Searches Text.
Remember that both SHIFT and Search start with "S".
- CONTROL key together with a mouse button Copies Text.
Remember that both CONTROL and Copy start with "C".
- ALT key together with a mouse button Adds Another Bookmark.
And unlike any editor, Depeche View actually uses all three mouse buttons:
- LEFT MOUSE BUTTON searches or copies in the current view.
- RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON searches in a different view at the right side.
- MIDDLE MOUSE BUTTON searches in a different view at the left side.
Furthermore, to fly over a thousand text files,
just keep the left mouse button pressed, then drag your mouse vertically.
This is the way smartphones and touch pads do it nowadays,
and it's the way Depeche View did it always.
Much More Than A Search Tool.
Further Depeche View Pro features:
- Instant Syntax Highlighting for
- Extend Syntax Highlighting by further languages
through a configuration file.
- On the fly Text Editing.
- Search Term Auto Suggest.
The tool creates a dictionary of all words (with five characters or more)
on the fly, and as you type, words are suggested for searching.
- Up to nine sets of bookmarks.
- Directly load, view and search contents of
.zip, .tar.gz and .tar.bz2 files.
Great for software developers who need to search in many Open Source projects
for some technical solution.
- Highlight words and phrases in different colors.
- Extended search expressions:
search words at line start, line end, full words.
- Search expressions to search
TAB separated database exports,
like "search in the 3rd column only".
- User script commands on self defined hot keys.
Run self-defined search expressions on words,
call external programs, and display text result files
written by external programs.
- User scripts on extended mouse buttons,
including nine extended buttons of a Razer Naga mouse.
Especially the scripting features allow software developers
to replace their IDE by calling command line compilers
and monitoring their text outputs. (For details, create a config file
in Depeche View, then search for the "runback" and "monitor" commands.)
