front page replacement?


Anyone have an idea of where I can get something to replace my front page, but still make use of the server extensions or similar? I'm looking to stop using Windows forever.

Screem is a nice website dev tool. It has link tracking, syntax hilighting, etc. , but dosen't have front page server extensions. I seriously doubt any tool besides Front Page will have access to these through the ide. If you really need them, check out wine or crossover office and run front page on linux.

OK, I appreciate your info, but I have a question

What is wine and crossover office, and what is the relation to front page? Sorry for my ignorance.

They are applications that allow you to run windows software in the Linux envrionment. Lots of people swear by them.

are we talking about running a setup file, or typing strings into a command line? Is it a user friendly process, or can I pretty much expect a headache or two? I'd really love to use whine or the other one but I just want to know what to expect.

Gracias

Try http://www.nvu.com. It looks promising.

Crossover Office has a graphical setup which will work in most situations, and it adds appropriate menu items to gnome/KDE. it's really no more difficult than using native linux applications.

Why do you need support for the frontpage extensions? If you want to stop using windows forever, then stop using Gates' proprietary protocols as well. Bite the hand that bleeds you!

Oooh! That felt good. I'm much calmer, now.

Try Screem, Bluefish, or even Mozilla Composer. Personally, I find Bluefish to be the best, but they're all great Open Source web development tools.

Enjoy!

1. To frozen: I'm not paying for any apps, so anything like that is out of the question. If NVU is free, I might try it later. Thank you.

2. to mikshaw: When you say a graphical setup do you mean I can download one file, click it twice and hit next until it's installed just like in Windows? Or do I have to undo the tarball and run rpm and all that jargon everyone on here is so fond of. And once it's installed is it as simple as going to the applications menu and choosing to run it? I'm sorry for my critical nature but unless the app is as easy to install in Linux as any app in Windows then I'm not messing with it. Bill Gates might be a punk, but if I have to go through some crap only a guru would understand then forget it. Thank you as well.

3. Cerber: I don't care what the program is called or the method. I just want to be able to change up my site locally and then publish from the same program using one button...like the familiar "publish web" command in Front Page. So, once again, the maker of the OS is irrelevant. I'm looking for convenience, I'm not revolting or anything like that. It's not a matter of principle, just a matter of my wallet.

Thank you all.

1. Crossover Office and WineX both require a small payment, so they may be out of the question....Frontpage or Dreamweaver may install with Wine, but I couldn't say for sure.

2. IF you have Crossover installed (sh whatevertheinstalleriscalled.sh), it's very similar to what you've been used to....except instead of double-clicking the Frontpage installer, you click the Crossover Office setup icon (or menu item) and follow its instructions....it's all GUI from there.

3. You might check out Quanta...it's a what-you-see app like frontpage, and may have (though I'm not certain) an upload utility.

I downloaded the crossover trial, and so far it is exactly what I'm looking for. I'm gonna have to pay for it in a month. Thanks for your help gentlemen. Now, does anyone know how I can get Slack to recognize my sony Handy cam when I connect it via USB? I'd like to import the images, edit them using photoshop or something similar, and post em.

I guess I just need a way to access my DVcamcorder as a removable drive connected via USB ( or 1394 if possible ). I'm gonna go look for some photo editing software. Anyone know of any?

Thank you fellas

Frontpage is a smack in the face of the
web publishing standards commity. Everyone
who not only uses but publicly advocates
it should be shot with XP CD's accelerated
to Mach2 ... it's like having a dump in the
mall because the toilet is 100m away.


Cheers,
Tink

Thanks.
