Anyone know of a good one thats free or cheaper then $400!!!
If you're a college student it's $117 and Studio MX is $180 after rebate.
Download Textpad. You can probably even set it up to give you pretty colors and shit for the tags, although I've never bothered to do that.
A good editor:
Not sure if it has WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) capabilities.
Macromedia Homesite 5.5 is pretty good.
Download the trial.
Very good HTML editor.
How can I forget... I agree with Funky Munky, Allaire Homesite, which was bought by Macromedia was one of the best editors out there.
I use Editplus for all my HTML editing.
Definetly. I use it in college and its the fastest, most convienent thing we have used for raw HTML coding.
You should be really hard core and switch to linux and just use Vi to edit your html.
HTML is too complex and hardcore for Windows to handle.
beat me to it.
i use to use notepad.
Notepad/Vi... why? I understand that it shows you can code HTML in them. But wouldn't you like certain features such as color-coded tags and inline autocomplete?
No offence to anyone here, but those who say "use notepad" have never worked in a professional development enviroment. Remember, Dreamweaver has wysiwyg functions, but turning them off is a single click. I use it all the time for working on personal and work projects. It's management functions rock. I even use it in PHP development.
As a side note, Dreamweaver works on *nix with Wine.
I wouldn't call dreamweaver "professional".
I use Visual SlickEdit, and I highly recommend it. Otherwise, Blowfish is decent on linux.
Try Eclipse. I use that now for all my work (C#, Python, Java, PHP, ASP) and I love it. Fits on my flash drive. Just requires Java 1.43 or higher.
if you google for eclipse, click i feelin lucky.
has eclipse gotten faster? I tried it a long time ago and stopped using it because it was slow and felt very bloated.
Anything that's the basis for the best web app IDE on the market isn't worth your time.
Actually I use Vim (VI improved) in redhat and it actually does do color coded tags.
i find it loads and runs faster/smoother then .net studio 2003.
Make sure u run java 1.5 though for the improved performance.
Oh no, I'm not saying it is (though most in the high end design and development industry do use it as a standard in team enviroments).
I use it at school and at home and I find it's pretty good. Much better on Linux than on Windows though.
