I want to change the position of a few columns in a largish HTML table (this one).

What's a good editor for doing this? I've found https://truben.no/table/ but it doesn't support colspans. The table editor plugin in Brackets doesn't seem to be able to do it either.

  • Which operating system? Must it be gratis, or do you ave a budget? – Mawg says reinstate Monica Sep 23 '19 at 12:35
  • @Mawg. I'm on Linux. I wouldn't have paid for the program in this case, but if there's a good paid program, that would be interesting too. – sjakobi Sep 23 '19 at 16:21
  • I added the linux tag for your. It's your call as to whether to add the gratis or even open-source tag. The more info you give, the more likely a satisfactory answer. GIGO :-) Good luck – Mawg says reinstate Monica Sep 24 '19 at 6:49

When it comes to working with large tables, I use a spreadsheet and export the csv, to an online table generator.

This makes editing, safe as the data can be restored if I mistake is made. Easy to save all my tables, and just in my opinion makes life so much easier.

I edited so many html, markdown tables online, or manually and it is a pain.

I use https://www.tablesgenerator.com/html_tables generally, or the wikipedia virtual editor.

    Interesting! CSV AFAIK doesn't support cells spanning multiple columns though, so I suspect that this wouldn't work in my case. – sjakobi Apr 23 '19 at 23:11

    Yes of course, it doesn't offer all the fine bells and whistles, but, it, serves as a safe redundant place, to format basic settings and then fine tune. – Julien Tremblay McLellan Apr 24 '19 at 1:49
