    Bluefish or Quanta Plus?


    Running Xubuntu and can't decide on which html editor to use.

    Bluefish is nice and simple but Quanta Plus seems to have more features. Like being able to parse the pages through apache on localhost and a nice quick visual tab.

    Anyone have a preference?

    Or any alternatives?

    I like Bluefish when running Gnome, and Quanta Plus when running KDE.

    You should try Komposer. It's (imo) the best webdesign tool for linux. It's also in the repositories.

    I prefer Quanta, but lately I have been using Aptana Studio. You will need java to be installed because its built on Eclipse.

    I just can't get to to grips with how it edits css files, does my head in.

    I just use a regular editor. I don't need any integration with apache nor things like that. I can have a live view of my site on a browser window on a separate workspace (I have a browser always open anyway, so...). Kate is particularly good since the kio integration makes it possible to edit remote sites on a live fashion.

    I also don't understand why would I have to use a different editor depending on my desktop.

    Like most things, this is all about tastes. Each one has his/her own formula here, as in most things.
