WSIWYG editor

Hope this is not an inappropriate question for this forum.

Last time I did any website work I used Komposer but this seems rather outdated now, not been updated since 2010.

So excluding Komposer what other open source WYSIWYG editors are others using?

I wouldn't necessary advise using a WYSIWYG editor - I am sure there are alternatives but there are plenty of free themes for any CMS/Blogging system out there that you could use if you don't have the code skills to do your own.

I have been experimenting with Brackets. What is cool about that is you open a browser and you can see the code changes live in the browser as you make them in Brackets.

Thanks for the suggestion Rob.

Have to admit my initial reaction was to steer away from Brackets due to it's association with Adobe; to my mind that makes it not quite full open source community project. However, no other obvious candidates have come to light so might forget my prejudices and give it a try.

Further investigation suggests that Brackets is only a code editor, not what I would describe as a WYSIWYG editor.

NickCUK may I ask why you need a WYSIWYG editor? They obviously won't always render 100% accurately.

Simple speed of development. Good to be able to type or copy/paste in standard text and have the editor do the HTML encoding. Also good to be able to edit CSS and see results immediately.

There are no good WYSIWYG editor for professional development. There are, however, lots of really good IDE's like Webstorm.

If you must use, I'd say go for something like Adobe Dreamweaver. That said, I emphatically urge everyone to NOT use a WYSIWYG editor in a professional enviornment
