Quanta Plus – web development environment

Last Updated on July 12, 2021

Quanta Plus is a web development tool for the K Desktop Environment. Quanta Plus is designed for quick web development and is rapidly becoming a mature editor with an extensive feature set.

Although Quanta Plus is a powerful HTML editor, it’s focus has extended to be an all-purpose web development environment.

It is more than a HTML editor, although the majority of its users are using Quanta+ to create web pages (HTML and PHP). Quanta+ supports a lot of markup and script languages, and the number of supported languages can be easily extended.

Quanta Plus is one of the applications included in the KDE WebDev – the WEB Development package for KDE. This package also includes Kommander (a GUI script builder), KFileReplace (search and replace utility), KXSLDbg (an XSL debugger), KImageMapEditor (an image map editor), and KLinkStatus (a link validity checker).

Features include:

  • An intuitive and powerful multiple document interface (MDI).
  • Use custom actions, scripting, and toolbars to automate almost any task.
  • Uses KDE KIO slaves for FTP, SSH (through FISH) and other protocol support.
  • Builtin rendering with KHTML.
  • Ability to load plugins, which are KParts (a powerful framework of KDE).
  • Displays the source code, WYSIWYG Mode (called VPL (Visual Page Layout) in Quanta) or both.
  • XML validation tool, using a xmllint back-end.
  • XSL processing tool, using the xsltproc tool.
