Bluefish is a powerful editor targeted towards programmers and web
developers, with many options to write websites, scripts and programming
code. Bluefish supports a wide variety of programming and markup languages
and has many features, e.g.
- Customizable code folding, auto indenting and completion
- Support for remote files operation over FTP, SFTP, HTTPS, WebDAV, etc.
- Site upload and download
- Powerful search and replace engine
- Customizable integration of external programs such as lint, make, etc
- Snippets plugin to automate often used code
- Code-aware in-line spell checking
- Zencoding or Emmet support
- Bookmarks panel
but is still lightweight and fast.
For validation of CSS/HTML/XML documents you need csstidy, tidy, weblint
and/or xmllint. For preview to work, you need a web browser that can view
local files given to it on the command line. For PHP or Python bluefish
supports php-codesniffer and pylint. Tools not suggested but supported
are make, perl, php5-cli and java-compiler.
