HTML editor

Postby Kappes Buur » Sat May 22, 2021 8:12 pm

Over the years I have used various HTML editors for simple web pages, like

    ACEhtml
    CoffeeCup
    Dreamweaver
    Expression Web
    etc
but somehow I always come back to HTMLkit.

Is there something else which is good, and easy, to use?

I quite like Kompozer but I haven't really shopped around to try the alternatives. I just downloaded it several years ago and it did what I needed.

As far as freeware I've yet to see anything that isn't clunky*, suspect**, or web-based***.

Personally I always write raw HTML in Notepad++. There is a preview plugin for it but it's not live, it has to be manually refreshed so there's literally no benefit over having the file open in an actual browser. At least there I can set it to reload every N minutes anyhow.

* Including "free" programs that are actually just limited trial versions of commercial stuff, because Google is unwilling to differentiate between the terms "freeware" and "free download".
** Every "fix registry errors with this free app" ad ever.
*** Blech.

AlternativeTo is suggesting VS Code or Notepad++.

That gives some interesting alternatives.
Using a text editor leaves me with wondering what tags to use. :)
I also tried Sublime, but just like Notepad++, it does not sit right with me.

So, I guess, I will stick with HTML-Kit 292.

Thank you, everyone, for your input.

Still using a 14-year-old build of KompoZer myself. It's more or less the old Mozilla suite's page composer (itself dating back to Netscape 3) forked out and improved.
