Hey all, I have been using smultron alot on the mac for HTML design. It is very useful indeed. Is there any linux alternative?

Looks like it's Free

Looks like it's Free Software so maybe it can be compiled on GNU/Linux as well, or ported? GNUStep uses something similar to cocoa so that may be a way to port cocoa apps.. but I'm just wildly guessing.

Looking at its screenshots kate and geany come to mind as potential alternatives.

For all HTML- and

For all HTML- and PHP-related coding I really like Bluefish. It's not blown up and it's good to use. And what's really cool is that it has a PHP-reference built in, so you can easily check for functions and it's parameters.

I second bluefish, maybe

I second bluefish, maybe Quanta too. Both are pretty cool, Quanta is KDE-centric though.

Quanta

I use Quanta, mainly because of the FISH kioslave.

I've never used smultron

I've never used smultron but maybe it's similar to NVU, here http://www.nvu.com/index.php. It's also available for the Mac. I'm just trying to learn it myself. Good FOSS alternative to DreamWeaver.

There is also an web page

There is also a web page editor in Mozilla Seamonkey.

PS: @libervisco, usually it's easy to port GNUstep applications to Mac OS X, but it won't be very easy to port Mac OS X applications to GNUstep as there are many APIs which is not available in GNUstep.

I see, thanks for the note.

Btw, Nvu is quite a fine alternative to FrontPage and probably even DreamWeaver indeed. I didn't use it much, but from what I've tried it reminds a lot of FrontPage which I've used a lot for my first web sites ever, back in the dark ages. Laughing out loud

Looks we didn't mention

Looks we didn't mention kate in this thread. I really find it to be the best editor to use for HTML editing and just about any code editing, online or offline.

I should try quanta and bluefish again though.. I didn't in a while.

I've heard about bluefish quite a lot. I'll download and take a look at it. I only need a simple wysiwyg editor as I'm inclined towards hand-coding, just to take away the chore in site building.
