HTML Editor?


Okay, anyone know of a good HTML Editor? (similar to Dreamweaver or Frontpage?) I know that's unlikely but I REALLY need one.

Those are not really good editors. I assume you mean a wysiwyg editor? The only ones for Linux I know of are Amaya and Mozilla Composer. Better off with something like bluefish or screem or quanta. Or vim!

Are those good for someone who doesnt know a lot of HTML? because as uk, in dreamweaver and frontpage, u can design it all visually and dont have to know much coding at all.

Don't know anything about Frontpage, but i wouldn't say Dreamweaver is not a good editor. I used it for about 3 years, and never had any complains...the code was pretty clean mostly.
Amaya looks good...I just installed it a few days ago, so can't give more of an opinion than that. Quanta is pretty good as well, but it's KDE based, so I dumped it (slow and a little buggy as with most KDE apps I've used on fluxbox...probably ok if you use KDE as your desktop).
Another one that looks decent (though I've never tried it) is Nvu. Personally I prefer the text-based editors these days...Bluefish and vim are excellent for html.

There's Screem too, but I personally prefer quanta over anything.

Yeah - I apologize for that. That was anti-wysiwyg bias talking. I know Frontpage sucks, but I'm not familiar with Dreamweaver. Shouldn't have said that.

Don't know where to find SuSE rpms, SuSE_User. Sorry. Maybe this has something.

SuSE_User,

FWIW, I used FrontPage for about 7 years doing a simple web page for my old job. On my latest project I didn't have access to a wysiwyg editor so I was forced to actually learn html. Well, well worth it. I used to look at those cryptic pages and think who the hell understands this stuff. Now I understand most of it and it wasn't that difucult. As with most "languages" about 5% of the code does about 95% of the work. I would highly recommend trying to use a non-wysiwyg editor.

Just my 2 cents.

Angry HTML Editor

Thanks for the poster who suggested nvu. I'm going to try that because it looks the most like what I want.

The original poster originally asked for a WYSIWYG editor similar to dreamweaver. Instead, the first response he got was a lot of people reflexively telling him what he 'really' needed.

This is something that frustrates me w/ the Linux community. There is this elitism that makes some look down their noses at users who want a graphical interface.

I too am looking for a wysiwyg editor because I want to build something more than a basic web site. I do things like: use a sliced background image for individual cells. Try doing that w/ 90 images in a pure text mode editor. A WYSIWYG editor can do things better and more easily than writing the code by hand when it comes to more-than-basic layouts.

WYSIWYG editors can be time savers and make visually elegant web sites. I take the point well that one should also know HTML. It makes good sense to understand the basics of the tools one uses. But if somebody asks for A , it doesn't make sense to tell them 'you should use B'.

Well I suggest learning HTML though. I understood not to use dreamweaver until I knew html. Then it just speeds up the process. So personally I just use gedit for html now. its like notepad in windows but it also highlight colors and gives line numbers (useful for php too). But I might give one of these programs a shot.

Latest NVU is not available as RPM for SuSE.

You can just download the Linux version from the NVU.com

Then just extract it to the /home directory, click on the nvu.sh and it should start it up.

Thats how i did it and its worked for me on SuSE and FC2.
