Is there anything like Dreamweaver for Linux?


Is there anything like Dreamweaver for Linux?

I want to make basic web pages, save time doing tables, etc.

Hi Abe,

Check out this site, they have a lot to say about alternative software for Windoze packages: Open Source as Alternative.

Kind regards,

Eric

Oops, I meant Windoze software not packages, sorry...

Yeah, it is isn't it? I've been browsing that site for some time now, trying out the stuff the have listed to my greatest satisfaction. Post your findings about Quanta Plus if you don't mind. Haven't looked into that one yet

Kind regards,

Eric

for simple stuff, I would use Bluefish.

If I am not mistaken, Dreamweaver will run on WINE and/or CrossOver.

my favourite for web development atm is aptana studio (http://www.aptana.org/). I use it as eclipse plugin, it has code completion for html, js, css, php etc. and many features to simplify life, similar to quanta+. It is also good for big web projects.

Amaya probably is the best program that is alternative to Dreamweaver. If you want template support, then you have to write a program your self that includes that feature. I have tried Bluefish, Quanta Plus, Nvu, KompoZer and just a basic text editor like gedit or krita. I have found that a text editor like gedit or krita are the best tools because Blufish, Quanta Plus, Nvu, KompoZer are unstable and not reliable.

I suggest using GIMP, Cinepaint, Inkscape, Xara Xtreme, Scribus, and OpenLaszlo to create a the layout of the site and then code. For some programs, you will have to slice the layout into images and then splice them together with HTML and CSS. You could use content management systems like Joomla and Drupal to handle consistency of your layout for each page and simplify adding pages. Both Joomla and Drupal are easy to setup, but some web hosting services have different rules and setups to make it a little hard. Personally, Drupal is what I pick for my sites since it already search engine optimized and XHTML compliant with a lot features. Both Joomla and Drupla has a WYSIWYG editor to help make the pages.

Firefox has tools to help with web design and fine tune your site. I suggest use Web Developer and Greasemonkey.
