    WYSIWYG web editor

    Guys,

    I didn't really know which was the best forum to ask this so feel free to tell me to shove it somewhere else.

    I've been looking for a wysiwyg web editor purely for designing layout templates without having to hand code every line of html/css. Thing is, I can't seem to find one. Are there any decent ones out there?

    Cheers

    Have you looked at Bluefish?

    Bluefish is a text editor (almost an IDE but more like an advanced text editor specialized for writing websites and some programming languages) but it is a desktop application. As far as a WYSIWYG web editor I don't know of any. Closest I can think of is some sort of CMS, like Wordpress.

    You could embed TinyMCE into a web page and use that.

    WordPress uses TinyMCE as its editor. If you don't want all the bells and whistles of WordPress, you can just add the editor to a simple web site.

    Isn't Geany supposed to provide some graphical editing?

    Also, I don't know if it is kept up-to-date, but there was Kompozer (formerly Nvu). It also includes a split-view so that as you change things in the HTML code, you can see the changes in a viewing panel.

    There is also BlueGiffonhttp://bluegriffon.org/ which is cross-platform.

    I rarely use graphical IDEs for web development, and when I do it is usually Visual Studio at work. What I do is type it all up in HTML or the like, using a CSS file for styling, and then use the Web Developer tool in Firefox (hit F12) where I can edit (add, turn off, change) the style tags and see immediately what it looks like. Then I keep track of what the final settings are and have to manually edit the CSS page but at least I have seen what it will look like.

    It isn't perfect, but it works and until Visual Studio handles PHP, is the best method I have at work for the time being.

    Konpozer was good but is no longer kept up to date. I am using PageEdit extension to chrome.

    On that note, there is also HTML Editor for Drive.

    WYSIWYG editors / IDEs are lacking in Linux.

    I have been coding the HTML by hand and applying CSS then in Firefox hit F12 for the web editor where I can change and add CSS tags and values and see the results immediately in the browser. Not fantastic, but works.

    I'm not sure what Monodevelop has for grapical or if that would be relevant.
