Nvu - a complete web authoring system

NVu Website - Freeware

Notes from Clif

I tried out NVu in May of this year. Nvu is one of the first open source web site editors that really seems to have taken lessons from the best commercial systems. Nvu has nearly everything a web publisher needs and it's got an easy to navigate interface. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it runs too slowly on older PC's.


I found a review of NVu that does a much better job of describing it's features. Take it away Buzzy ...


Review from Buzzy

Since I'm a web master that doesn't know HTML code, I've had to rely on page editors that are considered WYSIWYG or 'What You See Is What You Get' (pronounced 'wuzzy-wig'). For a few years now, I have been using the editor that comes with Open Office, with the odd stint using such items as Microsoft's Front Page. Though individuals that code in raw HTML frown upon these programs, they are a godsend to people like me that want to publish a web site, but don't have (or want) to take the moderate time it takes to learn the code.


To create this review page as well as my home page, I decided to use NVu to see if my first impressions had merit. I think I've found a keeper and here's where I tell you why: read more


Quote from NVu

Finally! A complete Web Authoring System for Linux Desktop users as well as Microsoft Windows and Macintosh users to rival programs like 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 manage a website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML. Nvu is an open source project and we encourage all who wish to help to get involved.
