I haven't been able to find the plugin in the NotePad's Plugin Manager, even when looking for "unstable" plugins. So, I found this in another answer on SE...
Preview HTML plugin.
Shutdown Notepad++ if it is running
Download the plugin from HERE
Unpack/unzip to a temp folder
copy the PreviewHTML.DLL file in the root of ...
Update (20170929): For the last year I am using the amazing Pinegrow (https://pinegrow.com) IDE and I wholeheartedly recommend it. The BlueGriffon I mentioned below in my reply from few years ago is outdated and far behind the Pinegrow in development.
I recommend BlueGriffon. It is FREE, feature rich, runs on all major platforms, and has many good add-ons, ...
This answer is no longer valid. As notified in comment by @Dorian, this can no more be used for normal web development.
Google Web Designer is a WYSIWYG html editor and much more.
The design is currently in beta and is available for the following Linux distributions:
Here's the official download link
This could be little late but how about XmlMind DocBook Editor Personal Edition. It is free-ware!
Note that it's not open source. (In other words it's not licensed as a GNU style open source type of free.)
Amaya is W3C's official WYSIWYG Web editor.
It is open source, and judging by the screenshots, customizable enough. Just in case, it also supports OSX and Windows.
On the home page, it is described thus:
Amaya is a Web editor, i.e. a tool used to create and update documents directly on the Web. Browsing features are seamlessly integrated with the editing ...
Personally I would recommend the online regex101:
Your own library and others
Shows you what is going on as you construct your re
Explains what each element does
Built in quick reference
re formatter for verbose options
Free, gratis but contributions invited
You don't say which language you are coding in. I will take a guess sand say it's PHP, as opposed to Node.Js or other.
If you code in PHP and don't mind using the veyy popular and easy to learn CodeIgniter framework, then you cannot beat Grocery CRUD.
grocery CRUD is an open source library that makes a developer's life
easier. Just few lines of code ...
There is frankly no good answer, because whichever tool you end up using will invariably mess up the code under it. I have not seen a single tool released in the past 14 years that was able to generate markup that could be considered acceptable.
In addition, most WYSIWYG editors are completely incapable of generating markup/CSS that works across browsers, ...
By looking at this Wikipedia page, I can see there aren't too many free alternatives for Linux. In fact you've already tried all WYSIWYG DTP software (excepting LyX).
You say you weren't happy with Scribus. Well, it has a lot of options but some are hidden in that interface.
Paragraph borders are not missing in Scribus. Draw a text frame T, write some text ...
Try using version-control software, such as Git. You can then edit the file however you want, such as with your favorite text editor, and you'll be able to look at previous versions and the differences between versions.
If you want a WYSIWYG editor with a much smaller footprint (download of ~20mb instead of ~600mb for Visual Studio Express for Web) then Mozilla Seamonkey's composer might be a good option.
I used it a bit quite a long time ago and found it quite fast and it did usually generate valid CSS/HTML. I have heard a report that it may mess up any PHP that is in ...
Since you want to produce a document where all the text is in the same direction, rotating the text in the word processor is not a good approach. You'll be limited to cumbersome interfaces designed for a one-off image-like object.
Produce the text normally and rotate the output from the word processor. Make sure to select the correct page size, with the ...
Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition supports Design view for HTML, but to enable this -in a website project - need to right click a file, and in "open with" options - select 'HTML (web forms ) Editor' - got this from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpoY1_YKGHQ . This works the same way in PRO and in Community versions.
As the comment on the original post suggested, Atlassian Confluence might be a good choice. I use it every day to document product requirements. I believe it satisfies all of the requirements in your "Question" section, although I'm not sure about "generates Markdown that pandoc can use".
I work for a small company and we run a self-hosted version of ...
If I understand you correctly you want to manually gather information from a lot of files. The files are primarily Perl files, and you are looking for SELECT statements, and possibly other stuff.
The way I see it you have three options to organise the gathered information:
Using a spreadsheet – Today you have a rowspan for each file, and then separate ...
I recommend CKEditor. You can choose between amount of necessary plugins for it so I think you can suit it the way you want to.
It fullfils following criteria:
has HTML edition mode
it's able to change standard formatting (font size, colors, bold/italic/underline/strike)
image and link insertion
Moreover it's ...
(You have not yet described what platform you want this to run on. I will assume you want a Web app.)
The ‘rsted’ project implements a text editor that produces reStructuredText.
A demonstration site at http://rst.ninjs.org/ lets you try ...
You wanna go look here: Electron by Github third party markdown apps.
There are no less than 10 different apps that work with Markdown in various ways depending on what you want.
I personally like Typora, but it doesn't do links quite like your looking for.
There is also QownNotes which I tried earlier. I found that I just didn't like it as much as I ...
Word processors are different from HTML editors.
Typically word processors are a kind of general-purpose software which you can compose letters, reports, even writing books can be done by word processors. They also provide extensive feature to format documents.
HTML editors are text-editors that can handle HTML files, and those are frequently used by web ...
Another WYSIWYG HTML builder is BlueGriffon. Similar to Kompozer but I found it a little easier to use. BlueGriffon is still under development and the latest version was released in November, 2017. There are nice tutorials for both on the internet.
I would suggest taking a look at RedNotebook

You might want to have a look at Drupal also, together with a specific contributed module for it, which IMO does what you're looking for, and actually much more: the Answers module. Here are some details about it (from its project page):
Answers enables the implementation of a Question & Answer system in a Drupal site. Users can post questions and ...
