Bluefish is a GTK+ HTML editor for the experienced web designer. Its features include nice wizards for startup, tables and frames; a fully featured image insert dialog; thumbnail creation and automatically linking of the thumbnail with the original image; and configurable HTML syntax highlighting. For validation to work you need weblint and xmllint. For preview to work, you need a web browser that can view local files given to it on the command line.
- It is light-weight.
- It detects apache automatically or you can set it up explicitly.
- The project folder can be anywhere on the computer, as can be seen in the second screenshot below. But server-side code needs to be in the www folder for the apache webserver. Or you can create a symlink in the www folder to the place where the actual project folder is kept.
- It is available free of cost as it is GNU/GPL-licensed.
