Bluefish is a web development editor focused towards development of dynamic websites. Bluefish supports development in (among others) HTML, XHTML, CSS, XML, PHP, C, Javascript, Java, SQL, Perl, ColdFusion, JSP, Python, Ruby, and shell. Bluefish is available on most platforms, including Linux, Solaris and Mac OS X, and Windows. Native Windows support, however, is only available for the development series. Bluefish is developed in C/GTK+ and can be used integrated in GNOME or independent from GNOME. Bluefish fills the niche market between the plain text editors and the full swing IDE: Bluefish is relatively lightweight and has a low learning curve, while still providing many features to support development of websites.



Bluefish is free and open source software and is released under the GNU GPL license.


Bluefish was started by Chris Mazuc and Olivier Sessink in 1997 to facilitate web development professionals on Linux desktop platforms. Bluefish has been developed ever since by a changing group of professional web developers under lead of Olivier Sessink. The project has had different names. The initial name Thtml editor was abandoned being too cryptic. Following name Prosite was abandoned to avoid clashes with multiple web development companies that used this name in a commercial context in various countries. The name Bluefish was chosen after a very cute logo (a child's drawing of a fish, in blue) was proposed on the mailinglist. Since the 1.0 release the original logo was replaced with a new, more polished, logo.
