Quanta is super handy and overall got my vote. Otherwise for barebones stuff I use Emacs. I can write html, compile my LaTeX stuff, and it even recognizes the syntax from stuff like MATLAB.

It's a tie...

IMO, my preferred Web page editor is Bluefish, as I have been using that editor to maintain Cybernightlife (I used Advanced Web Editor for OS/2 before I migrated to Linux back in December 1998). Quanta Plus ties with Bluefish as far as web page editor of the year, for its ease of use, on the fly previewing, and the ability to handle PHP.

I prefer Bluefish as it allows the most control over how my pages look and how they are formatted. Bluefish has better CSS support than QuantaPlus, as I prefer to use a single stylesheet as opposed to embedding CSS in all HTML pages.

Where's gphpedit?


I can't stand bluefish'es highlighting syntax. phpEclipse I love for it's project management. I love gphpedit, because it's minimalist, the syntax highlighting is awesome, and it has JUST ENOUGH features that it's enough to keep me from using nano, but it doesn't have so many it takes 5 minutes to load.

Quanta+ - definitely.
there is nothing comparable out there - e.g.
just consider the integrated php-debugger (gubed) !

What about jEdit (from As a developer, I've been using it for about 5 years now.
Yes, I know it's in the "editor" poll, but it should be here also.

Quanta +

Nothing comes close, i've converted like 4 people over to linux plainly on the thoery that nothing is anywhere near. People use vi and pretend there cool but the truth is that it doesn't do anything for them only syntax highlight. Quanta is a tool for making proper websites it makes anything else look like a baby's tool.
