What to use for creating HTML files for LazHTMLHelp
« on: October 21, 2019, 11:30:24 pm »
Now that I got the LazHtmlHelp code working correctly with MicrosoftEdge I wanted to know what you coders use for a IDE type Html page creator? I have made some files but the hard way I would to know if there are useable projects out there that can do this ?

 I have looked for opensource and free one's on the net and there are couple of interest.

 so what is the suggestion of the day for a IDE type Html Page editor so I can generate some help files quickly ?

I found SeaMonkey seems to be ok for what I want to do..

It supports named Anchors insertions to make it easier to edit the page so we can jump around form the help end of it.

I use visual studio code and live server plugin to get fast reloads when editing the HTML files.

Some options I got used to: Vim, Notepad++, Apache NetBeans, Atom and Brackets.

I simply use fpdoc for that. https://www.freepascal.org/docs-html/fpdoc/fpdoc.html with geany as editor.
Advantage is fpdoc creates the IDE docs from source, which gives you a complete base to work with.

I agree with Jamie's suggestion of Seamonkey, since just about everything else assumes some fancy underlying technology (i.e. is oriented towards a specific server etc.).

However /if/ you can get it for your preferred platform Kompozer is based on the same Mozilla/Netscape codebase, and is somewhat more advanced. I think that a Windows binary should still work, Linux (Debian etc.) binaries don't but a few days ago I managed (with a fair amount of hackery) to build it to run on a current x86-64 Debian.
