Wisewig Home Page


Wisewig is a cross platform WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web authoring tool. The spirit of it is much like Microsoft's "Frontpage Express" and Netscape's "Composer", but it is not yet as feature rich or stable.

The entire program is written in pure Tcl/Tk, so it should run with relatively little effort on Windows (95, 98 & NT), Macintosh and all major UNIX'es. You will need a version of Tcl/Tk 8.0 or higher to run it. To get support for JPEG images, you will need the img package.

I have released a pre alpha version that you can download here. This is basically to give you an idea of what it is. You can also see a screen shot here (24K) (the ugly colours were selected by the user (me in this case))


In contrast to Wisewig, html2cgi is stable and ready to use.

Html2cgi is a program for converting HTML files to Tcl CGI files. The comments in the HTML files can contain additional Tcl code for the CGI-script. This makes it possible to write CGI-scripts in a WYSIWYG Html editor, making the graphical layout easier than if the CGI script was just written in a normal text editor. You can download html2cgi here. You can get more detail about usage from the user's guide

Html2cgi has been written to produce CGI-scripts that use Don Libes's CGI library, so it is preferable that you have this library installed. It is however possible to write the few functions that are required from this library yourself.

SourceForge Logo This site is hosted by sourceforge and it therefore has a project page where you can get more info on the development.

I developed Wisewig and html2cgi on SuSE Linux 6.4 (Linux version 2.2.14) with Tcl/Tk 8.0.
