Imagine you received a huge xml file but without line breaks… It’s one long line… Then you were told to make use of one section of it…
I know how to view the xml structure by using the XML Notepad, but I will have problems to copy and paste certain parts of it out.
I tried to replace “>” with “>n” and it was a little better at first, but I would then have to manually insert the indentations… I was tempted to write a quick and dirty xml parser… then I was like, I don’t think I am the only one having this issue.
I did some searches and found that there is an easy way to pretty print the xml files. I am on win7 btw.
Then copy and paste your xml string into notepad++. Opening your file is fine too. It looks pretty good already, but you can make it even better.
Go to TextFX -> TextFX HTML Tidy -> Tidy: Reindent XML
You are done!
P.S. I found an online tool at: http://www.shell-tools.net/index.php?op=xml_format
