      The last version 1.14.2 has no .deb version for Linux, and seems to crash on Mac when launching. More generally, the development of the project seems to be paused or stopped.

      kayl Dreamweaver is made for designers. It is a WYSIWYG éditor and Brackets isn't.

      This is the only Open Source program which TRIES to be like Dreamweaver. It has very small amount of functions, but the core functionalities like live preview or split mode are present. Unfortunately add-on API is intentionally complicated to make user buy add-ons and not write own ones.

      Very poor HTML helping macros, without any detection of simple common errors. No preview at all. The only good thing is that it is the only open source HTML editor in which code highlighting works, but Dreamweaver has some more features. Much more.

    • JetBrains WebStorm is a commercial IDE for JavaScript, CSS & HTML built on JetBrains' IntelliJ IDEA platform.
      This alternative is disputed. It's still a legitimate alternative, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

      Webstorm has only a code editor and real time preview, but no WYSIWYG editor like Adobe Dreamweaver. While typing you always need to deal with code specific syntax.
