Posted by jun auza On 9/02/2008
Creating a website has become a lot easier these days, thanks to the more powerful and versatile HTML editors. To those who are using Linux and are seriously considering a career in web development, you can try some of the best Free and Open-source HTML editors that I have here on my list:

Quanta Plus

Quanta Plus, originally called Quanta, is a web Integrated development environment (IDE) for HTML, XHTML, CSS, XML, PHP and any other XML-based languages or scripting languages. It is part of KDE, released in the Kdewebdev package. Quanta is capable of both WYSIWYG design and handcoding. It features tag completion as you type and tag editing through a dialog interface, script language variable auto-completion, project management, live preview, PHP debugger, CVS support, Subversion support (through external plugin) to name just a few.

Bluefish, as described on its project home page, is a powerful editor targeted towards programmers and webdesigners, with many options to write websites, scripts and programming code. Bluefish supports many programming and markup languages, and it focuses on editing dynamic and interactive websites.


TinyMCE, also known as the Tiny Moxiecode Content Editor, is a platform-independent web-based JavaScript/HTML WYSIWYG editor control, released as open source software under the LGPL by Moxiecode Systems AB. It has the ability to convert HTML textarea fields or other HTML elements to editor instances. TinyMCE is designed to easily integrate with content management systems, such as Mambo, Joomla!, Drupal, WordPress and e107.

Amaya is web authoring tool with browsing abilities, created by a structured editor project at Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA), a French national research institution, and later adopted by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Amaya started as an HTML + CSS style sheets editor. It was then extended to support XML and an increasing number of XML applications such as the XHTML family, MathML, and SVG.

KompoZer is a WYSIWYG HTML Editor based on Nvu. It is maintained by a community-driven fork and is a project on Sourceforge. In March 2007, KompoZer was featured on Download.com's round up on the best free alternatives to Adobe CS3, where it was favorably compared to Adobe Dreamweaver.
