Nvu 1.0

By Deane Barker on June 29, 2005

Nvu – The Complete Web Authoring System for Linux, Macintosh: Nvu made it to a 1.0 release earlier today. I’m a big fan of this software. It’s like an un-crapped-up version of FrontPage. And it’s free.

  1. There’s no software for Macs. There’s no software for Macs. There’s no software for Macs. There’s no software for Macs. There’s no software for Macs. There’s no software for Macs. There’s no software for Macs.

  2. 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.

    sigh … just what we need. Something to make it easier for non-designers and administrative assistants everywhere to produce crappy web sites.

  3. If implemented properly, software like this should be used for non-designers to update sites rather than produce them.

    I don’t see this software being a bad thing in anyway since there’s already quite a bit of software that exists for non-designers to produce sites. The difference is that this supposedly produces clean HTML.

  4. I forgot the one thing that drives me nuts about Nvu: it creates a BR tag when you hit enter, not a P tag.

    In the options, you can set it to create a P tag when it’s already in a P tag. So if you’re in the middle of a paragraph, it will create another one. But what sucks is that a new page doesn’t start the cursor out in a P tag, so you have to go into the source and manually create one so that when you hit enter, you get another one.

    And then when you’re finished with a TABLE or UL or OL, you go back to not being in a P tag, and having to manually create one to make sure you get another one when you hit enter.

    It’s the dumbest thing, in an otherwise great tool.
