Adobe Dreamweaver is a proprietary web development application developed by Adobe Systems. Dreamweaver was originally developed by Macromedia in 1997, and was maintained by them until Macromedia was acquired by Adobe Systems in 2005.
In October 1996, Macromedia decided to create a new web page editing tool. Kevin Lynch led the effort, spending several months assembling a small team and talking with web designers about the challenges they faced building web sites with the current set of tools. Based on this customer insight, Kevin wrote a document called the "19 Dreams," a collection of stories about what an ideal web editing tool would do. These dreams served as the vision for the tool, and the project was subsequently codenamed "Dreamweaver."
Just over a year later, in December 1997, Dreamweaver 1.0 was released.
Dreamweaver, like other HTML editors, edits files locally then uploads them to the remote web server using FTP, SFTP, or WebDAV. Dreamweaver CS4 now supports the Subversion (SVN) version control system.
As of version 5, Dreamweaver supports syntax highlighting for the following languages out of the box:
- Extensible Markup Language (XML)
- Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT)
- HyperText Markup Language (HTML)
- PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP)
- Visual Basic (VB)
- Visual Basic Script Edition (VBScript)
- Wireless Markup Language (WML)
It is also possible for users to add their own language syntax highlighting. In addition, code completion is available for many of these languages.
Internationalization and localization
Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 is available in the following languages: Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean (Windows only), Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
Specific features for Arabic and Hebrew languages
The older Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 also features a Middle Eastern version that allows typing Arabic, Persian or Hebrew text (written from right to left) within the code view. Whether the text is fully Middle Eastern (written from right to left) or includes both English and Middle Eastern text (written left to right and right to left), it will be displayed properly.
