HTML editor, web browser
Amaya (formerly Amaya World) was a [4 ] free and open source WYSIWYG web authoring tool with [5 ] browsing abilities.
It was created by a structured editor project at the
INRIA, a French national research institution, and later adopted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as their testbed for web standards; a role it took over from the [6 ] Arena web browser. [7 ] [8 ] Since the last release in January 2012, INRIA and the W3C have stopped supporting the project and active development has ceased. [9 ] [10 ] [11 ]
Amaya had relatively low
system requirements compared with other web browsers of its time, so was sometimes considered a "lightweight" browser. [12 ]
History [ edit ]
Ramzi Guetari joined the team in October 1996. [13 ] Daniel Veillard was responsible for the integration of CSS in Amaya and maintained the Linux version. [13 ]
Features [ edit ]
Support for CSS, MathML, SVG, RDF and Xpointer
free and open image formats such as PNG and SVG, as well as a subset of SVG animation.
Codebase timeline [ edit ]
Amaya was a direct descendant of the
Grif WYSIWYG [14 ] SGML editor created by Vincent Quint and Irène Vatton at INRIA in the early 1980s, and of the [13 ] HTML editor Symposia, itself based on Grif, both developed and sold by French software company Grif SA.
Originally designed as a structured text editor (predating SGML) and later as an
HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) editor, it was then expanded to include XML-based capabilities such as XHTML, [14 ] MathML and [14 ] Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). [14 ]
A test bed application [ edit ]
It was used as a test-bed for new web technologies that were not supported in major browsers.
[12 ] [15 ]
Amaya was the first client that supported the
RDF annotation schema using XPointer. [16 ] [17 ] [18 ] The browser was available for [19 ] Linux, [20 ] Windows ( NT and 95), [20 ] Mac OS X, AmigaOS, SPARC / Solaris, [20 ] AIX, [20 ] OSF/1. [20 ]
Naming and logo [ edit ]
Tamaya was formerly the name of Amaya. Tamaya is the name of the tree represented in the logo. Tamaya is used by a French company and is trademarked so the developers chose to drop the first letter to make it Amaya. [21 ] [22 ]
