I’m looking for a dreamweaver alternative. Am on a Mac. What are folks using? I read about Flux, Coda2, Eclipse. But not sure which one if any of those above mentioned I should try.
I use Dreamweaver currently but am really not at all impressed. So any suggestions would be valued. Perhaps a reason why I should try what ever u recommend.
Thanks so much
Sublime Text because its lightweight. I like the packages that come with it or even some that people have made. The FTP plugin is also a great feature. However, Coda doesn’t seem like a bad option either.
I guess my question is, since the suggestions thus far are very cmd-line’ish, is your browser open at all times to see changes?
The one thing I like about dreamweaver is the split view option. When scripting I can see what happens (even if not in live view).
It feels like a safety blanket, a confirmation that layout works…..I do keep a browser open at all time as well.
@ricky55, i heard mixed reviews. what do you like about Coda2? @npav i have Brackets on my computer, just was too scared to try it. i will give it a spin.
thanks everyone for suggestions. i will look at many of them.
>the suggestions thus far are very cmd-line’ish, is your browser open at all times to see changes?
LOL, I don’t think any of those are “command line-ish.” As for testing in a browser, yes, view your work in a browser, _even if_ you keep using dreamweaver. Dreamweaver (et al) is not a browser. No one will _ever_, in a million years, view your live website in dreamweaver. Developing for a platform that no one will ever use is counter-productive: test in real browsers.
