Works on Linux (Debian, LMDE, Mint, Ubuntu) together with FileZilla, but:
- new instance instead of new tab on opening one more file is awful!
-> How to modify this behaviour?
- *.shtml (html/xhtml with SSI) not recognized as html/xhtml
-> what about using html doc type?
+ Good HTML "Any ... Tag ..." feature
+ German Translation included
+ eye-friendly syntax highlighting for (x)html, css, etc.
+ color picker
+ project manager (not tested)
! add *.shtml to html syntax sheme (user defined would be great)
- add contact form for non-facebook users
-> or should I treat the Minus as "bug" an report it?
Please have a look at medit programmers/text editor project (mooedit) on SF.net
Many Tnx for Your Work.
This program install broke 2 of my windows based system. I thought it may have been a fluke the first time.
It associated *.vbs files with Bluefish.exe and my computers did not like this.
Currenly I dislike this program because of this. DO NOT INSTALL IT AT LEAST IN WINDOWS.
I installed Bluefish in both Windows XP and Windows 8.0 and it created problems that took me hours to fix. The program also crashed when I used it too. Take it off this website!!!
Program is good but it broke with new Apple IOS Mavericks. When will this be fixed?
flexible and glitzy editor for ppl who code. works fine on *nix. i can x forward it over ssh from a *nix server to my desktop, it's stable enuf for that, which is pretty good. not as fast as gedit, but has more features. vi and emacs are pains in the ass, so i prefer bluefish for web development. good for that in particular. if you need help to build a site from windows, try visual studio express for web, free from micro$oft. if you're hardcore but hate terminal editors that force you to remember a million ctrl+ sequences, bluefish is probably something you'd like. conclusion: good editor.
Bluefish has great potential, but bugs and crashes during typical use are killing it.
