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.

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: http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1209

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

The application is now named as "KompoZer"

BlueGriffon is a feature-rich tabbed WYSIWYG content editor for the Web with formatting, spell-check and keyboard shortcuts. Powered by the rendering engine behind Firefox, it's a modern and robust solution to edit HTML in conformance to the latest standards, including HTML 4, XHTML 1 and HTML 5 documents. Includes the popular vector graphics editor SVG Edit and HTML files can be viewed in a rendered or a source-only mode that supports themes.

Note: Some features are for-pay including editing style sheets (thanks IanFromBarrie) and Full Screen view, but the program also supports many free add-ons similar to Firefox.

Cross-platform and intended to replace NVU, a tool written by the same author.

and a quick FYI about the comment on not having to pay for CSS editing, the "free one' in the program seems to be somewhat of a bad joke. It is a beat-around-the bush feature that lets you do something you wouldnt expect it to, and other features are just plain missing.. they may be there buried somewhere, but to a user who just installed it and is testing it out, it isn't very convincing, I did manage to find some of the features after an hour, and you shouldn't have to go into code to correct something that the editor did wrong. The spell checker seems like instead of correcting words it replaces the word and leaves the misspelled word right next to it. Like I said, maybe there is some option buried but to the new user of the product, it just doesn't do it. I ended up just writing my own simple WYSIWYG webpage editor in a few days and have the functionality i need... sheesh

osirisgothra: Every WYSIWYG editor I've worked with requires that I go back at some point and fix something in the code that the macro editor side broke. In my experience so far, BlueGriffon does some things better, some things worse. As to the CSS and rigidity, I agree, but the truth is that this is the direction Adobe went with Dreamweaver and I think BlueGriffin is trying to be an OSS alternative to that program rather than a normal WYSIWYG.

extracting the installer works with Universal Extractor (last version: 1.6.1), when updating bin/innounp.exe to latest version.

KompoZer Portable v0.8 Beta 3

webfork on 25 Jan 2016
  • 10MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Mar 2013
  • Suggested by Simon.T

KompoZer is a web authoring system (like FrontPage or DreamWeaver) that features WYSIWYG editing of web pages in a tabbed interface. Although requiring no knowledge of HTML, views can switch between normal, code, and "tag" views. Includes basic CSS, PHP, and Javascript tools, and support for forms, complex tables, layers, and templates.

Includes a Site Manager that works with local and FTP sites to give easy access to files in an easy tree-style format.

KompoZer and its name are based on Mozilla Composer (now part of SeaMonkey) and the now-defunct Nvu project. KompoZer Portable is a PortableApps version of the program. Alternatively, X-KompoZer is also available.
