Blumentals Software had a very clear goal in mind when it set out to develop WeBuilder. That goal was to develop a helpful, powerful, and yet easy to use code editor that web developers could use to efficiently and easily create and edit web pages. I’m glad to say that this goal was brilliantly achieved. Blumentals Software’s WeBuilder is one of the best code editors out there.
Support is provided for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Download an installer, run it, and a setup wizard will help you install WeBuilder on a PC powered by any of these Windows editions. Once the installation process is over and you run WeBuilder for the first time, you will be presented with a welcome wizard that will guide you through setting up the basic configuration. Skip this wizard and you may have to perform some manual configuration.
The aforementioned welcome wizard will help you specify how you want the interface to look. First up, the wizard will have you choose a workspace layout: default, all but the kitchen sink, file explorer only, full IDE, normal, notepad. Next up, the wizard will have you choose an interface style: modern, light, classic, colorful, flat, antique.
From a functionality point of view, the nice thing is that WeBuilder has a lot to offer. Just take a look at its main features: fat loading times, syntax highlighting, support for numerous programming languages, full Unicode support, code completion, HTML and CSS editor, PHP editor, spell checker, advanced search and replace, connect to a FTP server, portable mode so you can run the application from a USB stick, built-in preview, built-in file explorer, and more.
You don’t have 30 days at your disposal to use WeBuilder for free and uncover all its features and functions. You have 30 uses instead. You can launch and use WeBuilder for free a grand total of 30 times.
You will be hard pressed to find a code editor that is as good as WeBuilder.
Thanks to a setup wizard you will quickly install WeBuilder on your PC. Thanks to a welcome wizard you will quickly go through the basic configuration. WeBuilder features a customizable interface (pick a layout, pick an interface style). WeBuilder is a properly good code editor that puts lots of useful features at your disposal.
