For a long time I have been searching for an HTML editor that I could use on both Microsoft Windows and Linux. The first editor that I came across was the Mozilla Composer. All though this program could do the job, I had to download the whole Mozilla Suite to use it.

When I came across NVU, I was expecting a small HTML editor with little functionality, but I was unexpectedly  surprised. NVU is the closest thing that I have found that runs on Linux and that can be compared to the likes of FrontPage and Dreamweaver

Nvu (pronounced N-view, for a "new view") makes managing a web site a snap.  Now anyone can create web pages and managea website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML.

  • WYSIWYG editing of pages, making web creation as easy as typing a letter with your word processor.
  • Integrated file management via FTP.  Simply login to your web site and navigate through your files, editing web pages on the fly, directly from your site.
  • Reliable HTML code creation that will work with all of today's most popular browsers.
  • Jump between WYSIWYG Editing Mode and HTML using tabs.
  • Tabbed editing to make working on multiple pages a snap.
  • Powerful support for forms, tables, and templates.
  • The easiest-to-use, most powerful Web Authoring System available for Desktop Linux users.
  • Makes CSS simple

Nvu is 100% open source.  This means anyone is welcome to download Nvu at no charge from nvu.com, including the source code if you need to make special changes.

Developers can get involved and help make Nvu even better.

Nvu was started from the Mozilla Composer code base.  The Mozilla Internet suite is in the process of being broken up into individual pieces (browser, email, etc.).  Nvu will pick up where Composer left off, adding additional features, functionality and ease of use.
