XML Notepad

By zapfware

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


If you are looking for an easy. lightweight and convenient xml editor, this is the right tool for you.
Editing a xml file is no rocket science anymore.
You don't need to have developer skills anymore to edit xml files. Don't be afraid.

Note: This is not an swiss army knife for XML.
There is no overhead with XPath and all that stuff.
This tool can open only well formed xml and it neither tells you what is wrong with the document nor repairs it.
For this puprpose you will need an expensive "swiss army knife" tool.

Just edit, rearrange nodes or create new xml documents.
That's it.

Simple viewer, which is what I wanted.

I just wanted to quickly look at some XML files in a tree format, like Xcode does with property lists, and this app does it well.

A couple of suggestions for the developer:
– I don’t see the need to click on the disclosure triangle of an element in order to get the “#text” entry which allows you to edit the element; why not do it “in line” on the line right above it (the greyed out line)? It seems wasteful, not to mention that it’s bothersome to click a disclosure triangle only to see “#text” revealed.
– As others have mentioned, the search does not seem to do anything, like it’s not working at all.

Otherwise, I got what I wanted, a quick and tree-formated display of my XML files. Thank you.

It does what it says it does. Nothing more, nothing less.

If you are looking for an elegant way to view XML documents, this is a perfect little tool. I find it very handy when I don’t need to do a bunch of editing or validation, I just want to look at the data.

Interface is just not complete!

This program is darned near unusable. Evenutally I figured out how to use it - you have to right-click on the elements to do almost anything, though there are a few random inconsistent keyboard shortcuts. This is a textbook awful interface, and unless it is made intuitive and usable I would not recommend this program for any reason! Stick to a real text editor and be happy.
