HTML Editor


Well I am looking for an HTML editor for windows and Linux. I want one which lights up the things like <img src="pauliisasexybastard.jpg"> so I can see them, know what I mean? And maybe have a preview for my pages so I don't have to check them with another browser.

Anyone know a program for windows or linux which would fit the specs I need?

Previewing instead of using a browser - no. But without that requirement I use:

Linux: jEdit
Windows: Crimson Editor

There are plenty. I like Quanta. As Megaman X said, it has auto-completion, which is very cool. And it does highlight the code. In Windows, I use Dreamweaver, but only the code view. I don't like the code it generates automatically, even though I think it's definitely better then, say, Frontpage. For Linux there are also Bluefish and Screem.

PS: Nice sig, Megaman X.

Nvu

Quote:
From the Nvu Homepage
Finally! A complete Web Authoring System for Linux Desktop users to rival programs like FrontPage and Dreamweaver.

Nvu (pronounced N-view, for a "new view") makes managing a web site a snap. Now anyone can create web pages and manage a website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML.
Is this what you are after?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

I hate page builder type things! BLACH! BLACH! Those are so stupid. I ENJOY doing HTML, its kinda fun I hate programs which say they can make a perfect page for you, because none of them can make a page as nice as someone who knows even a little bit about HTML.

I usually have vi open when doing edits and a browser open up at the same time. Write changes and then refresh in the browser to take a look.. it can't get any better than that, to view in a real browser instead of a preview pane that might not show the details or same look at a browser..

Ok then. I think I'll have to live. What I kinda want is frontpage without the stupid things. It has an HTML highlighter and a preview plane but it is a bad html thing. So

Nvu or the Mozilla Composer will do preview panes and the html bit.

What about an editor with a template management function?

I mean like you write a base template file, then other pages are all based on the basic design(menu, links, header, etc) of this template. When you want to change the base design, you can just change the single template file and let the program update other pages.
Does such program exist for Linux? or you guys all use CSS to do this job? (my knowledge on CSS is fairly limited...)

Well, if you don't like css then couldn;t you make your index.html with the style you want and all of that, then save it. Then reopen it, take out all of the things which are specific to that section (like the text) and save that as the template?

Ya, that is one way to do it. But when you want to change a template file, e.g. add a new link into the menu, you will have to open the pages based on that template and add the new link one by one manually. When your site gets more than 30 pages.... that will be a nightmare.... just want to see if there are better way of doing it.... Thinking of writing a perl script or something myself but cannot find the time...
