Universal Nvu

Where is it?

I have been looking for an open source alternative to Dreamweaver recently and I found nvu. Yes, its got big shoes to fill if it’s going to compete with Macromedia / Adobe. However, from what I’ve seen of it so far from screenshots it does compete well.

The one problem I have is no one seems to have released a universal binary of the program yet for the new intel macs. I want this now because right now my mac crashes completely every time I try to open it. I will download it on windows later and have a play but I really want to complete my collection of open source programs on my mac.

Photoshop = The Gimp (even though I prefer the photoshop interface).
Dreamweaver = Nvu (even though dreamweaver is one of the best tools around).

And whats the difference in price between them? Obviously it’s mind blowingly huge. From FREE to THOUSANDS of pounds / dollars.

One reply on “Universal Nvu”

Nvu now works on an Intel mac under 10.4.7. They must have fixed whatever
problem there was in the Rosetta emulation that Nvu was triggering.
Still not a universal binary (so runs slower than it will when recompiled)
but for a basic webpage editor speed isn’t crucial.
