Subject description: wysiwyg html Editor
 

G'day,
I do a bit of editing websites and find it much easier to use a wysiwyg html editor - and the best that linux has to offer is kompozer. However, I have had numerous problems with other kompozer pet packages; with undefined symbols and segmentation faults, etc.... Most likely it's because I still use Puppy 3.01.
So I packaged up my own using the latest version available.

Here is the link (12mb download):
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ygjjdrycoly

Ignore the plethora of dependencies required; I changed the path which Kompozer looks for dependencies to its own folder; so as not to interfere with any other mozilla dependencies floating around your /usr/lib.

I have included a desktop entry for 'Internet'.

This has been tested on a fresh install of Fat-Free Puppy-301_xorg - so it will work in 3.01. Am curious to see if it will work in Puppy 4.

Cheers
Martin

Kompozer's still at heart a stand-alone version of the Composer component of Seamonkey, though, so many Puppy users might already have a variation of it. Very Happy

I don't remember what improvements were made to Kompozer/NVU/etc. over Composer, though (or if the Seamonkey team have also made any improvements on Composer, for that matter...)

G'day,
Kompozer is based on NVU is a development of Composer. The NVU team did a wonderful job but the project died - Kompozer is what the development of NVU should have looked like.
I have tried Composer for a couple of hours and is capable of creating only very basic websites (prehaps I gave up too soon!) - Kompozer will allow creation/editing of CSS based websites, allows Java integration and direct editing of live websites - to name a few of the major improvements over Composer.
I now only use Bluefish and Kompozer - with these two you can create a truely modern Website syle.

If this is possible with Composer I would indeed appreciate being enlightened.

Cheers
Martin

PS. To the best of my knowledge there hasn't been any development with Composer for a long time.

Kompozer is a fork of Nvu. Nvu was the Mozilla attempt to split out the HTML editor portion of the Mozilla Suite as a stand-alone program powered by Gecko. The work was being done by Daniel Glazman, who was being funded by Linspire, with the code to be ported back to Mozilla. The SeaMonkey team made no changes to Composer.

Linspire went belly up and was acquired by Xandros, who created the Linux version uses in the ASUS eee. Funding stopped, and Nvu development stopped. The Nvu code never made it back to Mozilla. Meanwhile, the Komposer devs had done of fork of Nvu adding some bug fixes.

The latest Kompozer beta has significant changes. The lead dev is working on backporting his changes (mostly Gecko mods) to the SeaMonkey code base, and making Kompozer an actual Mozilla community project the way SeaMonkey is. Down the road, all hope that the SeaMonkey Composer component and Kompozer will share a common code base and be feature compatible.

Right. I knew that it went Composer > NVU > Kompozer, basically - that's why I said Kompozer was still somewhat the Composer component 'at heart.' Very Happy I just didn't know or remember what improvements had been made in either NVU or Kompozer (even considering I've used all three... Embarassed )

Good to hear that the Seamonkey Composer isn't just gathering dust, so to speak. Smile

Not hardly.

Kompozer is here: http://kompozer.net/

The lead dev's blog is here: http://kazhack.org/

Linux builds are here: http://kompozer.net/download.php

(The 07.10 stable release is not compatible with Gtk ≥ 2.14, and upgrade to 8.0b3 is recommended.)

And to add to the merriment, Danial Glazman is working on Yet Another Open Source HTML editor, called Blue Griffon, and announced backing from a Belgian VC firm. The intent is apparently to make the app free and open source, but sell add-ons.

Blue Griffon is here: http://bluegriffon.org/

It's early code, with only nightlies available for testing from Freshmeat. Binaries are available for Win32 and Ubuntu.

Subject description: require feedback
 

G'day,
I have found a potential bug. Need to confirm this on other systems...

CSS view is compromised - not getting the same view as from the Browser - yet I can view the CSS layout on NVU.

Has anyone had the same problem?

Running from terminal I haven't seen any dependency glitches yet.

Cheers
Martin

PS. Menu and taskbar fonts are a bit too small - I think they're adjustable in a conf file - will look into it.

Subject description: problems with Kompozer pets
 

Am having a problem in Lucid Puppy 5.0 getting the Kompozer installation to work.

I installed it with the quickpet utility, but Kompozer wouldn't start when I clicked on the links to it in the menu. I removed that quickpet installation and downloaded and installed the above kompozer-0.8b3 pet from toowoombalinux, but with the same result.

I don't have the seamonkey suite installed, in case that's significant.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do? Thanks.

Sorry, I must have done something wrong somewhere. I booted a fresh installation of Lucid Puppy 5.0 from quickpet and Komposer installed and opened successfully.

Hello Martin, To let you know that I downloaded your 0.8b3 PET but didn't work on my Puppy 4.3.1 platform It just did nothing. However the kompozer-0.8.0 version that I subsequently installed from the forum does work. Thanks anyway, Best, munichjohn.

You can try a Kompozer pet I made from official Ubuntu debian package.
It works on my Lucid Puppy installation at least.
You can download it from www.esnips.com/web/lupu
