ⓘ Amaya (web editor)

Amaya is a discontinued free and open source WYSIWYG web authoring tool with 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 Arena web browser. Since the last release in January 2012, INRIA and the W3C have stopped supporting the project and active development has ceased.

Amaya has relatively low system requirements, even in comparison with other web browsers from the era of its active development period, so it has been considered a "lightweight" browser.


1. History

Amaya originated as a direct descendant of the Grif WYSIWYG SGML editor created in the early 1980s, and of the HTML editor Symposia, itself based on Grif, both developed and sold by French software company Grif SA.

The last change of code of Amaya was on Feb 22, 2013.


2. Features

  • Spell checking
  • Access keys
  • Support for CSS, MathML, SVG, RDF and Xpointer
  • Transport protocols
  • Page zooming
  • Caret navigation
  • Displays free and open image formats such as PNG and SVG, as well as a subset of SVG animation
  • Password management

3. A test bed application

It was used as a test-bed for new web technologies that were not supported in major browsers.

Amaya was the first client that supported the RDF annotation schema using XPointer. The browser was available for Linux, Windows NT and 95, Mac OS X, AmigaOS, SPARC / Solaris, AIX, OSF/1.


4. Naming and logo

Amaya was formerly called Tamaya. Tamaya is the name of the type of tree represented in the logo, but it was later discovered that Tamaya is also a trademark used by a French company, so the developers chose to drop the first letter to make it "Amaya".
