Alternative to Dreamweaver?





Da Rossa
Is there a software that does the same thing that Dreamweaver does, with open source, a solid community and acceptable features?
Thanks!

What about NVu? It has quite decent features. It's open source, too. And yeah free of cost.
Then, again it depends on what type or work you do and what you consider decent.
I personally don't use advanced features, I just want something quite basic so I use bluefish, whenever need be.
I have also tried NVu but didn't give it enough time to really use the feature sets.

I used just 2. One Frontpage and second Dreamweaver.

Currently i am using Dreamweaver and i never returned to Frontpage.

I have also heared about NVU but never used it. Many people say its good. So, try it and haveanother experience.

there is no real alternative to dream weaver as far as i am concerned

I don't think NVu is a true competitor for Dreamviewer when it comes to professionals.
But, I believe it does quite well for those who don't want to make something too complex and don't want to pay for Dreamweaver or pirate it.

Professionals don't use WYSIWYG editors. Thusly it's uncommon to find one that has a strong community. I'd suggest using a color-coded html/php editor.

For a basic scripting editor, there is none better than Notepad++ in my opinion. Here are some key feature.

1. It's free
2. It's has coloured coding making scripts easier to read and edit.
3. The colour coding is configurable
4. Supports pretty much any programming/scripting language
5. You can open files directly in a browser from the app.
6. You can record and run macros.
7. There are extensions available.
8. Script files has collapsable/expandable sections allowing you close a section of code to work on another section, which is ideal for long document.

plus man many more

If you do have Dreamweaver it does make sense to use it, as it's very expensive
