The Bluefish HTML editor is useful for large-scale Web projects and also smaller programming projects. Syntax highlighting and code blocks help developers build projects efficiently.

Building complex Web projects with CGI support can quickly become confusing. An HTML editor such as Bluefish [1], with support for project management and the more popular scripting languages, helps you keep track. The current version 1.01 gives users a number of interesting new features. The program is not officially part of the Gnome project, but it is often used in Gnome environments. Bluefish is based on the GTK toolkit and requires GTK version 2.0 or newer. libpcre version 3.0 or later provides useful syntax highlighting, however, the spellchecker, which is based on Aspell, is optional.
