Programming Tools: HTML WYSIWYG Editors
What I have been showing is NVu beta version 0.81. As such, it is not as stable or complete as it will be in its final release state. Some of the features that I feel currently are missing include:
Listing and validation of external links.
Listing of broken internal links.
A tree view of current set of pages.
A simple way of telling NVu that it is working off-line so it does not waste time trying to access the Web.
The ability to search Web sites for files and text within some or all of the Web's pages.
The ability to select which renderer to use.
I also encountered a few problem areas. For example, in the Publish Settings dialog, the Select Directory button referred to the local machine and not to the target or publishing server. Also, because I use Firefox, the internal chrome protocol is used fairly heavily. This version of NVu seems to treat uses of this protocol as errors, however. Finally, switching between display modes can be time-consuming.
NVu is an exciting new product that is trying to fill a void that now exists in the world of Linux applications. Try it out, and contribute if you can.
