Is there a program for creating programs

Programs for creating HTML pages

Which programs are required to create HTML pages? This is the first question you ask yourself when you want to make a website or learn HTML.

We only need very little to get started, and nobody has to spend any money on it! You will need:

  • a text editor (here we will start with the very simple one from the operating system and then in the second step a comfortable one that supports learning HTML)
  • a web browser - preferably for starting Firefox

There are numerous programs with which you can simply “click together” a website and through which you finally get the finished HTML code in the form of a file with the corresponding additional CSS file (s) and images. But that's not how you learn anything about HTML! And above all it is difficult for the beginner to assess whether the created HTML code is good (or "only" works).

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's sentence applies here: "Perfection is not achieved when there is nothing more to add, but when nothing can be left out."

We don't want any programs that automatically create HTML pages for us and are therefore not helpful when learning HTML. Therefore, handwork is initially the order of the day. What takes more time at the beginning will, with a certain level of HTML knowledge, enable you to create faster and leaner websites faster than any WYSIWYG program. WYSIWYG stands for "What You See Is What You Get" - that is, "What you see is what you get" - it is used to advertise various programs with which you can click together HTML pages and immediately see what they look like. But we want to learn HTML, so initially purely manual work.

Why handcraft with HTML?

There are several reasons for this (and 1-2 against :-))


  • full control over details
  • more readable code (depends on the writer)
  • no special software is required, HTML can be created with anything (even with notepad)
  • clean code (if the creator has a little idea)
  • special tricks are easier to implement by hand
  • it's cool man


  • Knowledge of HTML is required
  • more time consuming in the beginning

Later we will get to know other programs in order to be able to conveniently have the created HTML and CSS instructions checked for correctness, i.e. to have them validated or, as it is called in the HTML tutorial, to check whether the pages are valid are.
