The online HTML editor by Froala, emphasizing its advanced editing capabilities

If you need to edit HTML fast or you want to learn HTML as you go, an online HTML editor might be the best solution. Froala offers a free online real-time HTML editor that mirrors your changes from its WYSIWYG to HTML views.  It also mirrors your changes in reverse — as you write HTML in the left pane you can see the live version in the right pane. The online HTML editor is based on the Froala WYSIWYG HTML Editor. It also includes most of the features available in the Froala Editor: editing, styling/formatting, and inserting images/media.

In this article, we talk about the Froala online  HTML editor’s features. We will also show you how you can best use them in your project.

What is an HTML editor?

An HTML editor is an application for editing the markup language that defines the look and feel of a web page. In addition, the WYSIWYG editor is an interface where you can graphically design the look and feel of a web page without having to edit HTML. The Froala online editor shows both onscreen simultaneously.

Can I edit HTML code online?

Yes, the Froala online HTML editor lets you write HTML markup directly into an input field in the web browser. After that,  you see the results in real-time as it turns that markup into an interactive interface by your web browser.
