NVU Portable v1.0 Rev 5

webfork on 12 Jan 2016

Nvu is a web authoring system (like FrontPage or DreamWeaver) that features WYSIWYG editing of web pages, integrated file management via FTP and tabbed editing that makes working on multiple pages a snap. It includes support for forms, tables, and templates.

Note: KompoZer Portable is considered an unofficial bug fix based on the same code. The Nvu Project has ended and PortableApps lists KompoZer on the former home page.

Runs on: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Partial. You can enter Unicode characters into the documents you create, but you can't save them with Unicode filenames.
License: Freeware/Open Source
How to extract: Download the self-extracting EXE and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch NVUPortable.exe.
Similar/alternative apps: BlueGriffon, KompoZer Portable

An excellent basic HTML editor for new and intermediate Web page authors. Although the program has a few bugs here and there, it is easily one of the best free (non-text only) Web page editors available. Its cross-platform nature (windows, linux, mac) means you'll be able to edit your files no matter where you are.

Because NVU was never updated after its initial creation, a successor with some bug fixes and additional features is the also portable KompoZer:

his is a great program. While set up to easly open and edit html files, I found I can also open and edit asp pages as well. I really like how it color codes the html on the source view page
