"Pros: Quanta Plus is fast, stable, and filled with very useful
features. It’s probably the best web IDE for Linux available
"Cons: Although it is packed with features, there are some basic
ones missing – such as support for SVN
"Quanta Plus 01Quanta Plus is an open source web development
package from the KDE team. The software has a simple and clean user
interface and, though it’s not packed with features, it has
pretty much everything one would expect of a web IDE. We have been
in search of a good Linux-based alternative to some of the cool web
development tools for the Mac and for the Windows platforms.
Let’s look at some of the features that make Quanta Plus a
force to reckon with in this space.
"Quanta Plus supports multiple views of your document as you are
working on it. You can use it in code mode, WYSIWYG mode, or use
the DOM tree mode. We like this choice as it allows you some
flexibility – you can switch between views while working on
the document. Quanta Plus also allows you to split your workspace
into two views. You can work on the code in one half while having
the WYSIWYG mode displayed in the other half. This is neat because
you get a preview of changes as you make them in your code, without
having to save the file or launch a web browser."
