HTML editor with webpage preview as you type.

Overview

Tumult HyperEdit is a lightweight HTML editor with a preview pane that displays the Web page live as you type. HyperEdit breaks the tedious cycle of writing html, saving the file, then reloading and viewing the page in the browser by combining the writing phase with the viewing phase. This clarifies the effects of your changes and speeds up the overall process of making a Web page. W3C-based validation will red-underline any mistakes. It uses the same rendering engine found in Safari, so it is not only standards compliant, but also very fast.

HyperEdit can be used for:

  • Testing HTML to make sure it looks exactly as you want it.
  • Testing and executing PHP code.
  • Writing forum, blog, or journal entries.
  • Interactively trying out CSS code.
  • Running and debugging Javascript.
  • And creating whole websites.
Main Features
  • Preview pane quickly renders HTML, CSS, Javascript, or PHP as typed.
  • Live HTML W3C-based validation with red underlines and an error drawer
  • Code Snippets palette allows commonly used code and tags (open and close) to be saved and recalled using custom key stroke combinations
  • Syntax highlighting for HTML, PHP, CSS, and Javascript with custom colors and fonts
  • Files attached to the table in the Linked Filed drawer will cause a refresh of the Web view when they are saved.
  • Javascript code evaluator.
  • View HTML source code generated by the PHP engine
  • Color swatches palette allows inserting colors and saving favorites
  • Regular expression find and replace (thanks to OgreKit)
  • Option to not cache data, so externally changed files are reloaded every time.
  • Style sheet menu allows pages to use different styles
  • A delay timer, so the page will wait to render a specified amount of time after typing has stopped.
  • Startup Items in advanced preferences allows HyperEdit to load documents on startup

Well, welcome to AppStore! Promoted by a MacWorld 2004 rating... Apple definitely needs some 'version control'. So far, this here is much more reliable. (price is top on the App Store, btw, $14.99)

This software has not been updated in almost 10 years. Yet, it's still my go-to app for quick HTML edits. I have switched to Coda for most of my coding need, but the smaller window and simplicity of HyperEdit make me go back to it regularly.

I've just started using this, in order to see what I'm doing while I speed-learn CSS. Very useful, easy to use - apart from not remembering the last-opened-doc layout, which means you have to resize and adjust the divider every time you open a doc. I'm getting round this now with an iKey shortcut.

I really wish that Apple had not abandoned iWeb as I have yet to find a replacement that I like as much. On the hand coding side, if you know CSS and HTML this app is a dead on simple editor, with a great preview pane.

Addendum: My comments are for the AppStore version. Not sure what is going on with their website version.

Please forgive my ignorance if such is the case. What are you talking about?

@Lookin2it: right, too cryptic. Basically, I (mis)used MacUpdate to remind myself - and perhaps others coming from the AppStore - of some facts: The present version 1.6 of the app is nearly 3 years old, quite some time. The AppStore version is 1.6.1, which is not even mentioned in their history as of today (www.tumultco.com/HyperEdit/history.html) - anyone's free to guess if it's anything else than adding AppStore compatibility. And a 7 year old review, which is the 2nd paragraph in the AppStore description, is totally irrelevant. I was looking for some alternative for MarsEdit/Textmate for HTML/blog preview. But I won't invest in a seemingly dead app, even if it's just $15. My comment would be more on spot in the AppStore, but there I have to buy first. I thought MacUpdate would lose ground to the AppStore, but actually it's more important than ever (for me at least).

Very good application. Fast, user-friendly and completely WYSIWYG. I used to use Taco, but now this is the HTML editor of choice... with Taco coming in a close second.

Splendid application! Transparency in the colors - at least for window background - would be awesome.

First I tried a trial of the award winning BBEdit, an excellent program but a little too expensive. After a while I found this program, which offered many features I was looking for in a HTML/PHP editor (validation, live preview, code snippets, unicode support, Javascript console). Moreover, the developer seems to be open to suggestions and promised to release an universal binary (free for registered 1.x users). Only downside is the stability, which is not really bad and is said to improve in later versions.

HyperEdit is possibly the best web development application for any platform. For a php or layout specialist you cant go past it. The price is just the iceing on the cake.You wont find anything cheaper thats upto the quality of HyperEdit

HyperEdit has been my preferred editor for at least a year now. The developer has been responsive and creative which makes for a great application now, but an even better one in the future. Live preview is a must and the simple power of HyperEdit's features re: html, css, top the cake with icing.
