FTLEdit 0.2b

What is FTLEdit?

FTLEdit is a simple source code editor for HTML files. One special feature is the integrated browser preview, which shows the current file with the system default browser in a separate window.


  • Editor area with line numbers and syntax coloring for HTML.
  • Current selected directory is shown in a tree view next to the source code editor.
  • Integrated Browser preview with the standard system browser. The preview can be refreshed at any time, although source code is not saved.
  • Last working directory is reopened at next program start.
  • Switch between display and edit mode.
  • Integrated context menu with important functions like Find/Replace, Undo/Redo and so on.
  • Encoding for saving files can be defined in user settings.

System requirements

FlatFusion is completely written in Java, so to execute the program, a Java runtime environment (JRE) or Java developer kit(J2SE) in version 1.6 or higher must be correctly installed on the computer. FlatFusion was tested with the operation systems Mac OS X 10.6, Mac OS X 10.5(Intel/PPC)and Windows 7 (32 and 64 Bit).

For FTLEdit 0.2, the WebSpec API of the Watij project in version 1.3.1 is needed.
It can be downloaded under - there choose the ZIP file with version 1.3.1


Simply copy the appropriate application file for your operating system and architecture into any folder you want.
For Mac OS X it is not recommended to copy the FTLEdit program file directly into the Applications folder. Please create instead a FTLEdit folder inside the Applications folder and copy the program file into this folder. Unzip the downloaded ZIP file with the WebSpec API and copy the lib folder with all included files into the same folder as the program file.
On Windows and Mac OS X, simply start the program with a double click to the application file.
On Linux, open a terminal, go to your folder and type "java -jar ftledit.jar" to start the program.


FTLEdit includes and uses some other java libraries and is distributed under the GPL GNU General Public License version 3. Sourcecode is available in the download section.

FTLEdit is donationware. The version downloadable on this web site can be used without every restriction as long as desired without any costs. In case you should find the software useful, however, and want to achieve a small donation, then simply contact me (see: Questions and problems).
