Nvu for Mac1.0PR

28 June 2005

WYSIWYG HTML editor.

What is Nvu for Mac

Nvu is a standalone 'WYSIWYG' (WhatYouSeeIsWhatYouGet) HTML editor based on Gecko, Mozilla's rendering engine.

What's new in Nvu

Version 1.0PR:
  • Fixed: Source view was wrapping at column 30
  • Fixed: cannot outdent an indented list in CSS mode
  • Fixed: changing the type of a list item in a Strict DTD-based document and CSS mode can lead to invalid markup
  • Fixed: cannot change twice the type of a list in CSS mode
  • Fixed: refreshing a local site's view in the Site Manager has not effect and freezes the throbber
  • Fixed: "New tab" and "Revert" contextual menu items added to tabs
  • Fixed: Form insertion dialog's width has problems when using the More/Fewer button
  • Fixed: iframe elements' end tag removed in XHTML but IE chokes on it (*sigh*)
  • Fixed: cannot make an image float using CSS through the image dialog in Strict mode (wow, in fact it was not a bug, I forgot to implement it back in 2002! Thanks Erich Reto Iseli for the heads up.)
  • Fixed: publishing an XHTML document was publishing something different from a locally saved version
  • Fixed: typo in Help, "secion" instead of "section"
  • Fixed: Help window is always on top on Mac OS X, forcing to close Help window to edit again
  • Fixed: Site Manager now lists all directories before normal files and sorts both case insensitive, whatever the platform (Windows does this by default but not unix)
  • Fixed: Site Manager chokes on remote empty directories
  • Fixed: Site Manager chokes on local rempty directories
  • Fixed: creating a new directory was inserting an new entry at the wrong place
  • Fixed: changing the color of links has no effect in Nvu
  • Enhancement: added a "Reload images" contextual menu entry to tabs (personal request from Linspire's President and CEO). It does what you think it does. It refreshes all images (almost all, see below), including those in CSS inline styles and CSS stylesheets. Only one image resists again and again: the background specified by the background attribute on body cannot be refreshed. I tried various strategies, none worked. It'll remain a "known issue" for v1.0.
  • Fixed: inserting a form into an XHTML document freezes Nvu
  • Fixed: middle-click on a tab closes the tab
  • Fixed: control-F4 closes the currrent tab
  • Fixed: Insert > Smart widgets > Made With Nvu Button now uses the new smaller document made with nvu
  • Fixed: double-clicking on an image file from a local-HD site in the Site Manager was not inserting the image into the document
  • Fixed: "Contributed User Guide" => "User Guide"
  • Fixed: if at least 2 tabs are currently edited, closing the current tab through context menu "Close Tab" and IMMEDIATELY applying H1 to the remaining tab crashes Nvu
  • Fixed: editing a textarea deletes it
  • Fixed: editing a label deletes it
  • Fixed: editing a select element in XHTML does not list the options and optgroups
  • Enhancement: "copy" added to contextual menu in Help window and Copy button added to its toolbar
  • Enhancement: Help dialog buttons now target the relevant help section
  • Inline Spell Checker now disabled by default

Beware using Nvu to edit pages originally created with MS Pubisher - it destroyed the link between page and page files within their relative folders. Have spent hours trying to manually edit the corrupted image pathways - but Nvu just wont publish the corrections. What should have taken 5 minutes in MS Publisher, has wasted 5 hours of my time so far. I bought a Mac because I was tired of having to become a computer engineer just to get my equipment to do "what it says on the box" - I guess Nvu users are of a different mentality.

Well my first reaction is very negative. Running the program sends it into a never ending loop of starting up and crashing. I can't even kill the stupid thing from Activity Monitor! The only way out of it is to log out of my machine. Yes, the readme warns against running it from the disk image. But this is a mac, we expect software to "just work"! If the program can't run from a locked disk image then either fix it or don't ship it on a locked disk image! Rubbish.

It looks good at first, however there's no preview function. Oh sure there's a tab that 'says' preview but it ignores any javascript and flash components and renders the pages horrendously for some reason. This is definately NOT wysiwyg! I find this strange considering other ultra-simple wysiwyg html editors such as WebMinimalist has this simple necessity. I find it a shame 'cause this app has some really handy features but I think I'll stick to Taco at the moment which seems to be the only TRUE, free wysiwyg html editor for OSX, and judging by it's 4.5 star rating I'm not the only one who thinks so.

A follow-up to my last comment which probably sounds a bit too negative: Of course, people who do professional web design should be able to afford a commercial product and not have to rely on a free and open-source app. BUT, while they are at it, why not turn Nvu into a really excellent, state-of-the-art editor that can kick GoLive's and Dreamweaver's b*tt? Like many reviewers before me, I am very excited about this app and I'm sure it will become as great as, say, Firefox. I really hope so, because I don't like GoLive, nor Dreamweaver. So, thumbs up to the Nvu developers, keep going, I'll buy all of you a large mug of coffee.

Sigh... Nvu (1.0 final release, not PR!) is a good start: not because it's a good WYSIWYG html editor, but because it's the ONLY free WYSIWYG html editor available for Mac OS X. Sadly. The work that has been put into this software is very highly respected, and things can only get better from here on. I'm sure Nvu is great if you just want to hack up a couple of simple pages without needing to know about HTML. However, if you do professional web design, you can safely forget about Nvu at this stage. There are just too many inconsistencies and bugs if you really need to rely on the details and focus on high-quality, elegant code. You can only switch between HTML 4 and XHTML 1 and between transitional and strict DTDs, and that is not honored correctly (if set to XHTML, an HTML 4 header is inserted anyway). It does the most vile thing a web editor can possibly do: it automatically reformats and changes your existing code, even if you tell it in the preferences not to. If you use inline CSS formatting, it inserts a huge bunch of completely unnecessary CSS formatting statements. This is about as bad as it can get; a regression to the bad, dark, old world of the web-editing stone age à la Claris HomePage (1997). Not good! To sum it up, if you're still stuck in the HTML 4 era (1997-2000), and don't care about what's happening in the background (i.e. code), Nvu will be quite a useful piece of software. If you're going to do state of the art web development (using XHTML 1 and CSS), Nvu will not work for, but against you. It's more fun developing with a standard text editor (as before) than wasting time editing out the bad stuff Nvu automagically puts into your code. The interface looks very promising but needs a lot of polish. There are some nasty bugs that absolutely shouldn't be in a 1.0 final release, like if you close the last document window, the menu functions for creating or opening a new document no longer work; the only way to get out of this is to quit and re-launch Nvu and then open a file from within the document window that's created on startup. So -- looking forward to a hopefully bright future viz. open source WYSIWYG web editing on Mac OS X, and may the force be with all developers working on such a project.

Nvu seems to be on the right track as FireFox was about 2 years ago. Its just been ported to Mac - and it shows. User interface is Windows like and not very friendly. On my Pismo G3 400 - it crawls and is almost unusable - but thats even acceptable for now as Apple is selling far more new computers. However, having said all the negatives above - this has GREAT potential. It could be the Firefox of web editors. The site management layout is good and the multiple tabbed interface is a great idea. I suggest Mac users with G4 or faster computers use Nvu and help in giving enough feedback so that the developers can work on making this better.

This program gets better and better. It now edits CSS in external style sheets. It's available for Windows, Mac, and Unix systems. You can manage many websites, each having many pages. Works with file system access or ftp. Downsides? Of course. The style sheet editing isn't obvious. There are some hiccups in the user interface. But consider the price. And it is possible to report bugs. I like it.

Ever since I switched to the Mac in 1998, I have been looking for my "FrontPage Express" replacement, and Nvu is finally it. Essentially Mozilla Composer with a site manager, this app is the real deal. We should all use this app, support the author with feedback, tell everyone about it and help improve it. I am absolutely astonished that Apple doesn't offer a webpage making program for the consumer (the .Mac stuff aside.) Go NVU!

It's nice that it's free, but it feels clumsy to use. It's not very Mac-ish, and it doesn't support a lot of Mac keyboard shortcuts. It feels more like a Linux port.

This is an incredible program, especially for being free. That said, there needs to be a little more work on the Site section of the program. Accessing files off the network would be cool, as well as relative links. CSS support seems good, but then again, I've manage to learn what i would consider ideal CSS practices, so hopefully if people aren't CSS coders, this would encourage proper style-coding. I'll be watching this app for sure! GO MOZILLA, GO!

I was trying to make a cell span over the rows below, but Nvu freaked out - it created an extra column, and when I managed to fix that the second column would not be even with the second... then I tried Mozilla's Composer and noticed this same bug is there. Oh well. Back to good old Claris Home Page...

This version of NVU (Ver.0.80/Beta) is a whole lot better than the previous version. It seems alot snappier (quicker), less buggy, and definately more keyboard command friendly (i.e. - copy/paste keyboard commands). Having only briefly tried it so far, the only thing can fault it for was I had some mystery anchors appear at the bottom of my page which were all duplicates of the very last anchor that I made. I had to use the Netscape Composer to finally get rid of them. As far as IMPROVEMENTS that are needed - when you use the OPEN or SAVE AS options and the "WINDOW with the COLUMNS" appears for you to make your choice as to where to OPEN or to SAVE the document you want - it would be nice to be able to manually adjust the with of those COLUMNS [which by the way, is a STANDARD CAPABILITY of most OS-X software programs]. Other than that, NVU is starting to look good, really good! This developer is definately headed in the right direction with this program. - Russell

The world does need a wysiwyg Web authoring app. that is cheaper and has an easier learning curve than Dreamweaver or Go Live. I'm amazed that so far Composer (and this) is the only alternative. Composer (and presumably this) has some annoying features, for inst. that with it link-to-inserted-anchor is way too hard to do, and it lacks any documentation (you may want to have a look at http://eee.uci.edu/help/composer-mozilla/, but it also has some good points, such its ability to handle Unicode and the fact that it writes fairly decent and clean code (something Claris Home Page does NOT do, it introduced far too much proprietary code). And all, the Mac community really needs a decent low end app., and for the moment Composer / Nvu is all we have. So let's treat it with a little respect.

Nvu is now stable enough to be usable. I support the developer's effort to make a stand alone version of Composer necause : 1) Mozilla developers roadmap shows Composer will be unbundled & left to die in the future. 2) Most folks want a simple to use wysiwyg html editor as they only have modest needs. If you get PAID to develop in html that s nice for you but who else wants to learn a language just to knock up or edit the odd page NOT ME! It's a bit like back in the 80's when creating a text document required you to remember all the arcane coed of Wordstar AND embed printer control codes as well - idiocy! Long live wysiwyg!!!!

Stop the Presses! There appears to be a more advanced version of NVU. It's a WYSIWYG-HTML Web Editor called COMPOSER and its built into Web Browser Mozilla 1.7.5. Somehow Mozilla must be connected the NVU project? because they look alike. The difference is COMPOSER seems to be more advanced (more stable, less buggy).

Until NVU is ready to accept the standard "command c" (copy) and "command v" (paste) keyboard commands [ESPECIALLY in the LINK window] I'm not ready to give up on my ancient OS-9 Claris Homepage yet. NVU is still in its infancy, BUT, the potential of this program becoming an awesome WYSIWYG - HTML editor definately exist. Had Claris Homepage continued to exist (in a OS-X format) my guess is it would have take the form of where NVU is heading today!

Since NVU isn't even a ver. 1.0 yet, I think any harsh critism should be with held (personal opinion). I just downloaded loaded it today (01/15/05) and I like what I see. It reminds me of the same ease and simplicity of Claris Homepage. It your going to issue harsh critism wait until the software has had a chance to make it to the development stage of v2.0 - 4.0, geez, give the developer a chance to develope! - Russell

Stoopid reviews... In fact NVU is unfinished BUT it is a work in progress. It is free. It is open source. It will be good. Just let things appen. Look at Mozilla, Firefox, MPlayer, VLC, OpenOffice, etc. They were simple, unpolished, unusable applications. Now they are great free, rock solid apps that can compete with Internet Explorer, Media Player, Quicktime, Microsoft Office. Look at the Gimp, what it was, what it is (and what it will be, improving, coming close to Photoshop). One day we will have a free Dreamweaver like application. Thanks to open source, free software and projects like this one.

The program encourages writing code at the same level as Microsoft word export, which is not standards compliant This program belongs to the 90s Wysiwyg editing is very limited, and I recommend another free HTML editor with realtime preview in safari, like subEthaEdit or Smultron (which is free for non-commercial users)

How can it be that an HTML editor needs a 12 Mb download? I can't imagine that it is smaller once you unpack it. Offering an app like this is like asking you take a bus to get through the checkout line at a supermarket.

I've read a lot of glowing comments about this software both here and in forums around the web. Features are barely more advanced than 90s OS 9 versions of Adobe PageMill and Claris Homepage. There is absolutely no comparison to Golive and Dreamweaver. WYSIWYG is used somewhat loosely here. The results are only slightly better than an HTML export from either MS Word or Appleworks. Again, no comparisons to Golive or Dreamweaver. Ease of Use is worse than Pagemill and Homepage... but the GUI and buttons are pretty... Obviously the value is incredible, and the app appears stable after an hour of evaluation. The big question is... what is NVU trying to be? If the goal is an entry-level website design app, the software needs better WYSIWYG and improved ease of use.

This is OS X bay-bee. :) Props for making an icon that sticks with the .app, but I'd prefer the above things to work before I take Nvu into my warm digital embrace. Until then, it's got nothin' on Mozilla 1.7.3's Composer.

There are two things this app has to do before I'll trade it in for the two-step annoyance of opening a page in Mozilla 1.8, then hitting Cmd-E to get the opened doc to appear in Composer: 1. Act like any other OS X app: ability to drag-n-drop an HTML doc onto it and have it open that doc. 2. Act like any other OS X app: appear in the list of available apps when ctrl-clicking and viewing Open With... Until then, this isn't an OS X app, but rather a clumsy, bloated adaptation of an Darwin/X11 app. While the new icon is pretty, it doesn't even copy over with the app to my Applications folder. Sheesh.

i am really happy they ported this for OS X - it reminds me of a modern version of Claris Home Page there are quite a few bugs though that make it hard to use - sometimes the keyboard shortcuts don't work at all sometimes with "CTRL" instead of "Command". then it is hard to select text - and I would be happy to be able to modify links without pressing OK for everyone. I would like a button to preview the page in different browsers - anyway - I wonder if it is going to be seriously developed for Mac OS X or it will be just a stepchild of the Linux version. it fills a gap in the applications for OS X. there should be for real a decent free WYSIWYG HTML editor. I cant believe this is the only one - maybe Mozilla Composer does not have these bugs - but will it be developed for OS X once the Mozilla suite will be split in different components? fix the bugs and i would give 4 stars. and 5 star value.

I just spent time at the product forum. It looks as though this requires 10.3.x rather than 10.1.x. Can someone verify this for us poor saps stuck in 10.2.8? I still have hight hopes! Thanks to all and to all a good night! Roo

Quits on launch. (Mac OS X 10.2.8) I have hopes for this product. It's greatly needed.

It is now Claris Home Page. Pros: It is free, works with latest image formats and it is much needed. Cons: 30MB is a bit big. Doesn't understand frames, close x's should be right on the tabs if we must use tabs. Misuse of sheets--have a hard time editing properties of objects when the sheet covers over the object, should be a palette. Can't drag-n-drop html pages on application icon. Profile creation is bizarre with the horizontal scrollbar to move about 4 pixels of dialog text. Undo and Redo command keys don't work until the menubar is clicked... It goes on and on. Summary: This application is under development and it shows mostly in acting like a foreigner to the Mac. I thank all who are working on this and wish them the best of luck with it.

Looks promising! It'll be nice to have a free, quickie WYSIWYG editor. It's no Dreamweaver or GoLive, but it'll fill a much needed niche.

When I try to quit Nvu sometimes I get an error that says Nvu-bin unexpectedly quit. Other time I have trouble getting Nvu to quit it takes at least 2 tries sometimes. I have no problems getting Nvu to start. (10.3.5)

I think it's great that we finally get something that can rival the established DreamWeaver and GoLive. I've only used Nvu for a little while but so far I'm impressed. Yes the icon is butt-ugly but Nvu is fast, and hasn't crashed for me yet :-) I have great hopes for this - one is that I can finally throw out the bloated and slooooow DW.

Nvu is a wonderful WYSIWYG html editor. It has ftp support for publishing work. It also has a built-in preview mode along with the code, tag, and WYSIWYG modes. It has many of the features of Dreamweaver but its free. I will be using Nvu along with Dreamweaver from now on in my web-design business AKUTECH.com. -Alex

That must have been on the wishlist of many. Finally someone with some coding skills made the effort. Thanks a lot to the developer! Okay, so the icon sucks (wink) and the preview requires switching to another tab (I would prefer an extra window), But this is about it. Dramatically better than the Netscape composer it is (or was?) based upon. And it's free, so grab it.
