Feature changed by: Wolfgang Rosenauer (wrosenauer)
Feature #312338, revision 10
Title: Add BlueGriffon web editor to the repositories

Package Wishlist: Evaluation by engineering manager
Requester: Neutral

Requested by: Ricardo Martins (rikhard)
Partner organization:

BlueGriffon is a new WYSIWYG content editor for the World Wide Web.
Powered by Gecko, the rendering engine of Firefox 4, it's a modern and
robust solution to edit Web pages in conformance to the latest Web
BlueGriffon ( is a relatively young project
(based on Nvu, or made by the same person), but it does seem to be very
good when compared to some of the other open source tools, not to
mention that it's still a very active project. It supports html 5, css
3, and has an integrated svg editor, among other things.

Ricardo, would you please explain what BlueGriffon actually is, why do
you think it is "very good" and point the URL of the project?

Thank you for your comment, Satoru. I've already updated the
description, hope it helps.

The WYSIWYG editor currently distributed with openSUSE is Kompozer ( ( ). This was a
further development of nVu. Although the last release was 0.8b3 in
March 2010, it seems that work has not ceased on it. Some comments on
the current state of Kompozer, along with a couple of thoughts on
BlueGriffon, can be found at

BlueGriffon 1.2 has just been released:
I have previously suggested to the developer to use the OBS to build
packages but so far no response on that. Currently he only builds for
Ubuntu and sometimes others chip in with Fedora or other packages, but
nothing for SUSE. Could somebody who understands OBS possibly have a
look at it and/or give him a nudge in that direction?

+ BlueGriffon 1.3.1 is available in the mozilla repository for now. I plan to
+ inclusion into Factory soon to hit 12.2.
