Bluefish is a powerful editor targeted towards programmers and web developers, with many options to write websites, scripts and programming code. Bluefish supports a wide variety of programming and markup languages and has many features, e.g.

- Customizable code folding, auto indenting and completion
- Support for remote files operation over FTP, SFTP, HTTPS, WebDAV, etc.
- Site upload and download
- Powerful search and replace engine
- Customizable integration of external programs such as lint, make, etc
- Snippets plugin to automate often used code
- Code-aware in-line spell checking
- Zencoding or Emmet support
- Bookmarks panel
but is still lightweight and fast.

For validation of CSS/HTML/XML documents you need csstidy, tidy, weblint and/or xmllint. For preview to work, you need a web browser that can view local files given to it on the command line. For PHP or Python bluefish supports php-codesniffer and pylint. Tools not suggested but supported are make, perl, php5-cli and java-compiler.

No autocomplete; questionable about uptodate standards; code languages sound but I have seen better; no WYSIWIG HTML in this day and age... really? But it does appear this is all that is in any repository. Going back to Komodo-Edit instead.

Every web developer should have this installed. It's lightweight, and great for quick tweaks and fixes, as well as for entire page development.

Muy buena aplicación, demasiado diría yo. La utilizo para mis proyectos web y de verdad que es muy buena, y pensar que es gratuita y es un software libre. Para que gastar tanto dinero en Dreamweaver cuando tengo este software.

I use it for PHP and HTML coding extensively, though my first choice is aptana studio

Undoubtedly well-featured and capable. Sorry to say that I find it cumbersome and confusing. Keeping it, but back to my first love - Arachnophilia

Working with remote files from bluefish and file manageer with Elevated Priviledges takes the biscuit, love this programme.

Actually nice application but after a while it didn't start-up anymore, just loading a few seconds and then nothing. This behaviour is kept even after re-installing. It's a pity.
