XML Formatter

XMLBlueprint's XML Formatter (XML Beautifier) is an easy and powerful tool to format an XML Document.

To make your document better readable you can:

  • Remove (or preserve) whitespace.
  • Collapse or expand empty elements.
  • Format attributes on one line, or multiple lines.
  • Split long lines (or one long line) into several shorter ones.
  • Specify the indent size and choose your preferred indentation: tab or spaces.

Other features include:

  • To show which text has changed, the formatted text is marked by a blue line.
  • Formatting is fast, even for large files, and you can save your preferences for next time.
  • Formatting your confidential data is safe in this offline tool.

Formatting preferences

You can specify how XMLBlueprint should format your xml file. For instance, what to do with empty elements and where to place attributes and text. XMLBlueprint correctly handles whitespacing (the xml:space attribute), and you can override this behavior for specific elements.
