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... Closest Match: Preview HTML plugin. Installation 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 The BlueGriffon I mentioned below in my reply from few years ago is outdated and far behind the Pinegrow in development.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, ...

You can use GeoGebra: Free (+ portable version available) Works with Windows/Mac/Linux (even Android/iPhone/Windows Phone as well as in Google Chrome) has some Measurement Tools

Update This answer is no longer valid.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: Ubuntu Debian OpenSuSE Fedora Here's the official download link

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 ...

You could use MathJax. It's a free, opensource, purely Javascript library for rendering math equations. Stack Exchange uses it (that's how I heard of it). It supports input through LaTeX and MathML according to it's site (I've only used the LaTeX input). It looks like it has everything you want.

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.)

Personally I would recommend the online regex101: Supported flavours: pcre (php), javascript & python 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 Substitution Editor Code Generator re formatter for verbose options Free, gratis but contributions invited Open ...

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 ...

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 ...

I would check out Pixie - Image Editor. Pixie is a photo editing & manipulation application. It is perfect for integration into other projects or personal and other use. Unlike other similar products it is built with html5 and javascript and not outdated technologies like flash. This makes Pixie future-proof, allows for much better performance and cross-...

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. EDIT: It fullfils following criteria: it's free has HTML edition mode it's able to change standard formatting (font size, colors, bold/italic/underline/strike) image and link insertion aligning JS library Moreover it's ...

You can take look at Phanbook at https://github.com/phanbook/phanbook It is completely open source and is designed to build sites like stackoverflow.

(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. It is implemented in the Flask web framework (Python, JavaScript). The source code is free software to all recipients. A demonstration site at http://rst.ninjs.org/ lets you try ...

It's been over two years since I asked this question, but I've now found something like I've wanted. It's called Typora. It is a WYSIWYG editor for markdown(not reST, at least yet).

Another solution that was recommended to me is Visual Studio Code with a reStructuredText extension by LeXtudio. It has side-by-by preview and seems to be working well so far.

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 recommend Pingendo. It's an easy to use WYSIWYG web page editor with an extremely simple interface. It's a program that you download and install yourself where you can use it offline. This program is still in active development currently working on Bootstrap 4.0 support. Pingendo Pingendo helps you authoring HTML5 and CSS3 web pages. Bootstrap ...

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 ...

You need a web browser that also can be used as a what-you-see-is-what-you-get HTML editor. The only one I know and have used is a very old program called Amaya. It lets you browse the HTML files, click on links, and when you see something you want to fix, just start typing and it inserts your text, images, etc. It is free and open source. The interface ...
