Software That Integrates Tidy

For some people, the command line is terra incognita. They prefer the comfort and familiarity of a graphical user interface. A number of text and HTML editors integrate Tidy, or enable you to add Tidy to the editor as a tool.

In Windows, Tidy is integrated with the NoteTab text editor family, and the HTML-Kit and 1st Page 2000 web editors. You can also set up the popular TextPad text editor to work with Tidy. (I've posted instructions on how to do this.) There's even a graphical front-end available for Tidy, called TidyGUI. Unfortunately, TidyGUI is no longer maintained—use it at your own risk.

For user of the MacOS, there is a native version of Tidy available from the Tidy web site. There's also a plug-in called BBTidy for the popular BBEdit text editor.

Linux users aren't left out either. They can integrate Tidy with such web editors as Bluefish and Quanta.

On top of all that, you can download Tidy packages that integrate the software with such popular tools as vim, emacs, and FrontPage. Visit the Tidy web site for links to these packages.
