Only thing ive found that is in the repos is BlueFish, which is not that impressinve..
Or aplications that help you to make a website based on css and html?
I think the answer here is that nothing in Linux compares to Dreamweaver, but then again, do you really want Dreamweaver?
In the olden days I built a site using a plain text editor and Color Cop, a little Windows utility for ascertaining the hexadecimal values of colors for use in css. Server-side includes made things easier, allowing me to do the sorts of things that Dreamweaver supports in its IDE, and then when css came along life got even easier for me, because I could encapsulate design in one or two files for an entire site. Then PHP and cron opened up more possibilities. But why bother with all of that, really?
Nowadays in the modren era, I suggest using a CMS like the folks above have suggested, because why reinvent the wheel? Even if you can, and you do mention knowing css and html. I have a DVD full of html and css that most likely will never get online again.
CMS systems include Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress and many others
, though that trio is regarded is Big Three Daddios. All are good in various ways, they have their own little advantages and disadvantages, but your optimal choice will depend upon your needs, abilities and preferences. I've personally tried Drupal, Wordpress and also maintenance-free and otherwise free Google-owned Blogger
, which is about as no-brainer as you can get, unless you design your own template like I like to do. Since you know html and css, then a CMS will be that much easier to customize, though nowadays the need for coding is much reduced. The CMS handles most of the html and PHP and the most an end user does is tweak the css once in a while. So you can sit back and focus on content, which is really the fun part, right? (Well...depends whether you're a programmer.)
