Here are a couple of options for you!

 

I just did a Google search and typed- Dreamweaver for Linux and got tons of software links- too numerous to list here.I don't use an HTML editor but thought this might point you in the right direction!

I have been trying to find a dreamweaver alternative for ages as its one program I have to keep a windows box for...... not successful yet..the ones available can do a job but not so good....

 

try your repos for Google-webdesigner.... it looks promising but my keyboard dont work in it..  maybe you could compile it for Fedora.

Who needs Dreamweaver, much more fun to hand code HTML.  :bananas:

 

In all seriousness, I used Dreamweaver for my Web Dev classes in college. It makes some terribly sloppy code, but its much faster for the more complex stuff. I would just throw up a Windows VM and use Dreamweaver inside of there. Should run perfectly fine inside one and then you don't have to dual boot.

I could probably produce a working site  by hand but it would look rather antiquated  as things have moved on a lot since i started and never had time to keep up with... when i started people didnt use CSS even just HTML

I am suprised that no one has ever really developed a better Dreamweaver type prog for Linux, ..

 

I have a Stand alone Win 7 (light) that houses a load of programs old and new that never run on Linux , or wine, etc.. more for historical interest than anything. i also have some early linux distros Linspire, Mandrake, first Ubuntu,  etc etc..

Just to check, have you tried wine? It might be able to let you run dreamweaver through it. This website https://appdb.winehq.org/ gives results of how well various windows programs can be made to run within wine.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB

That is also fun! Haha!

 

I haven't done any HTML in a while, but I did enjoy hand coding it and CSS. I didn't use Dreamweaver til my third Web Dev course. Dreamweaver does make it much much faster though.

I've never found any program like Dreamweaver for any OS, let alone for Linux. It's very one of a kind. My suggestion would be Bluefish, which is essentially a glorified text-editor.

Komposer is an option. http://www.linuxalt.com/ also has a few more options for WYSIWYG editors

Maybe you could run dreamweaver inside of windows in a virtual box?

@lukexj

 

For any alternatives to Windows-based (or any other) software, you should first try alternativeto.net

 

A simple Google on "alternative to Dreamweaver" reveals, amongst other entries:

  • Aptana Studio (Mac, Windows,Linux) - 288 likes
  • Brackets (editor) (Mac, Windows,Linux) - 147 likes
  • Komodo Edit (& Komodo IDE) (Mac, Windows,Linux, BSD) - 146 likes for Edit and
  • the above being ranked ahead of the quite reputable Bluefish Editor (91 likes) mentioned by hollowface

You may find one of them to your liking.
