    Anybody using Stylizer: Another CSS editor?

    Stylizer. It looks pretty cool. It only allows for editing of CSS and not HTML though. I wanted to see if anyone has tried it or do you have other recommendations for a CSS (and possibly HTML) editor ?

    is there such an editor that will actually recommend or fix various bugs for IE and other browsers while we code in it?

    If you know CSS well, it doesn`t matter which editor you use for your creating web sites.

    For some people even Notepad is good.

    I love firebug for debug css in realtime.

    Don't forget nodepad++ I think it better than (M$)nodepad.

    i downloaded the demo. so far it's pretty cool cause it starts you off with a training on how to use the program. other than that i don't know how well it'd fit in with my CMS work though.

    i'm willing to try anything at this point though cause i'm finding CSS to be my biggest weakness. especially once you throw in the IE

    just an update here: i spent the past 12 hours with the Stylizer demo on one of my sites that i was starting from scratch. i must say that without using a lot of the features, it was still very useful. i was able to get things in place quite fast and tomorrow i'm going to load it into the CMS and finish the site. it only crashed once and was quick to update the pages. i might consider buying this for sure.

    I use Coda and CSSEdit (I prefer CSSEdit but the additional features Coda offers keep me using it most of the time).

    looking at jedit's website, it doesn't do what stylizer does though. does it offer realtime tweaking of css? does it simplify the css selection process with dropdown menus? that's what i remember stylizer doing.

    alas i still use web developer toolbar in firefox. i keep hearing great things about firebug but i'd rather get to learn that one for javascript stuff.

    If you hate dinking around with CSS like I do, you will love Stylizer.

    Unlike other tools, Stylizer doesn't mess with your HTML. I develop dynamic web apps. So I need a tool like this that doesn't conflict with the HTML layout which my application framework needs to "own". I get the CSS concepts, and have built the HTML to include the proper <div> and class/id entities.

    However, I am not so good at putting on the finishing touches with CSS-- Stylizer to the rescue. I can quickly produce pixel perfect rendering that is 98% of the way there, and if the client wants to adjust the fonts and spacing, the attributes are set up for any final adjustments.

    You may wonder if this reviewer knows what he is talking about-- and perhaps not. I only discovered Stylizer this morning, and used the trial for a couple hours. But I immediately purchased the full version so I can test out other web browsers.

    I AM JUST TOO TIRED OF DINKING AROUND WITH CSS!!!!!

    I totally agree with you DoctorJava. I have spent a lot of time messing about with css in text editors for multiple sites and I got sick of it pretty quickly and that's when I found Stylizer. That was when they were up to version 4. I am using 5 now and creating and editing css is so easy.

    I really don't understand why everyone isn't using it.

    As for text/code editors, they really aren't that great for editing visual elements of websites, especially not in realtime. But I guess that comes down to what you like.

    Hello,

    I would suggest forget about CSS and HTML editors, they mess all the final code. For static web sites somebody can accept this but this is no good when doing dynamic web sites.

    My humble recommendation:
    Study a lot and code by hand your HTML and CSS if you plan to use that in dynamic web sites done with php, asp etc.

    Hope this helps.
    Best regards
    joejac

    If you're interested in a Linux port of Stylizer, go vote.

    The problem is that doing art and coding don't go together very well.
    Until now, creating website's visuals involves more coding than actual creation. The result is this : 99&#37; of websites look like bland messy things with flat colours, a few ramps and round corners that make them look oh-so-modern. Stumbling upon a site that looks like it's been dressed by an artist is extremely rare.
    Stylizer changes this a bit, making the whole thing more visual. While still giving you nearly full control over the code.

    So, if you're purely a coder, notepad++ or any code editors coupled with firebug will probably suit all your needs.
    But if you have even the slightest artistic inclinations, Stylizer is the way to go !

    This was my humble opinion.

    Stylizer have impressed me more than any other program I've used.
    Really easy to learn.

    There's no problem using it for webapps/dynamic pages. On the contrary.

    I highly recommend it. It will save you a thousand headaches!
