The image you see below is the editor Quanta Plus on Mac OS X. It is a port of KDE WebDev and is usually run on Linux. Since I’ve been working with it for a while I tought it would be nice to get it going on Apples Mac OS X too.
I began by installing MacPorts (an “an easy-to-use system for compiling, installing, and upgrading either command-line, X11 or Aqua based open-source software on the Mac OS X operating system”).
Before you install MacPorts be sure to have Apples X11 User/window environment (installed as default in OS X 10.5+) ans XCode Developer Tools.
The next step was to install the base for the K Desktop Environment (KDE3). This is done by opening the Terminal and write:
sudo port install kdebase3
The instal might take a while. Now for the programs. Install kdewebdev3, a webdeveloping package including Quanta Plus.
sudo port install kdewebdev3
Once again, the install can take some time so be patient. When it’s done you can find the apps in
/opt/local/bin. Good to go!
