Best Open Source version of Dreamweaver


Ok. So I've looked and found a post that seemed similar to what mine is for but no one has replied to it so I thought I'd ask my question here.

My question isn't simply what free alternatives are there to Adobe Dreamweaver as I can find that out with a simple compiled list someone made by searching on google.

Before I ask my question I will say this. As many Linux users know, if you want to have all the features and versatility/usability of Microsoft Office for free without pirating the software you want to get Libre Office.

What I want to know is if there is any program out there that's free and open source that is practicaly identical to Dreamweaver just like how Libre Office is pratically identical to MS Office down to the user interface.

I am mainly looking for something that I can run using a Windows PC. And before anyone says anything, yes, I use Windows. I also use MAC and Linux.
But I figured the best place to find info about something open source of this nature would be to ask the community that specializes in open source. If there is a program that fits my requirements but is only available on Linux then I will make do with that and just boot up my Linux Distro in order to use it.

Any help is greatly appreciated but I will say that I am only looking for something that is practically identical to Dreamweaver all the way down to the interface and features such as the live view option and auto complete and color organization of HTML tags and CSS.

Thanks in advance,

I'm not sure there is any linux app that can compete with dreamweaver. Dreamweaver is a fantastic product and if used correctly one can create and maintain complex web sites over a huge array of servers or sites.

It may be possible to purchase Dreamweaver and install it on a linux system. There are web pages on how to do that but you'd have to install it on a windows system and then move it.

The other way is to run a windows vm with dreamweaver on it.

Quanta is a dead project. There haven't been updates to the site in almost a decade.

I have also used Kompozer in conjunction with Kate, as Kompozer's built-in "edit source" function is rather klunky. I have heard good things about Bluefish, but haven't looked at it in years.

Note that I'm not a professional web person--I've done my own website and helped a few persons, but I'm not an expert. I've learned what I've had to learn, and that's it.

please note that link was provided earlier and its #1 listed replacement is the application that has not been updated in years that also has a dead link for its homepage as it is no longer a live application.

I didn't see Osalt.com listed in this post before. I saw a different site listed. So I went to OSALT and did a check for dreamweaver and it gave serval Open Source products to check out in place of Dreamweaver. So I listed the full link to check out.
