Xmplify is a powerful new XML editor for OS X.

Xmplify provides a number of powerful features to make working with and manipulating XML simple and intuitive:

Fully XML-aware editing environment
Xmplify analyses your XML as you type, and maintains a rich set of metadata so it can provide intelligent editing aids and suggestions according to your document's content and the current editing context.

See your document's structure at a glance
Xmplify provides an outline view of your document that shows its structure, and automatically keeps the outline up-to-date to more...

What's New

Version 1.5.4:
  • Perform character entity substitution before validating documents. Thanks to Jon Southwood for the feature request.
  • Fixed bug where scrolling through documents can result in blank areas being displayed instead of the document.
  • Fixed bug where enabling or disabling line wrapping can result in blank areas being displayed instead of the document.

It's been some time now since I last reviewed Xmplify, and I guess it's time for an update.

I've been using the tool for the last few years now for almost every XML editing task on the Mac, and I keep being surprised by its great versatility, quality, feature-richness and stability. Of all the XML editors I came across this is definitely the one I like using most.

Another thing, experienced again just today, is the great responsiveness of the author. I made a feature suggestion that turned out to be for a feature that was already there, and I got a friendly reply explaining the feature within minutes (where, to be honest, an RTFM would also have been in order :-)).

There are lots of tools that are much more expensive and don't have even nearly that quality of support. So a 100% thumbs-up again for Damien and Xmlplify!

Nice! This will compliment BBEdit for me nicely.

Finally! A native OSX editor for XML. I only had to work with the trial for about 10 minutes before I knew that I wanted to buy Xmplify, and I did.

The author was quick to get back to me on a few suggestions and a small interface bug. I hope that fixes and updates roll out just as quickly.

Unfortunately, the fixes and updates have not been rolling out. It's been close to 4 months and not a single update to be seen. Very disappointing for a product that seems to have so much potential.


And the bugs are fixed? Or do they proved to be of less significance?


@bub1200. Some updates have come out. It's up to v1.2. Bugs reported by me have been fixed, but there are still some features that I would like to see. E.g. A a tabbed document interface instead of a separate window for each XML file opened.

I do quite a bit of work with XML and still highly recommend Xmplify.

Xmplify may not have all the whistles and bells of oXygen XML yet, but it's remarkably full-featured, robust, and stable for a 1.0 product. It also has the most elegant and easy-to-use interface of any XML editor I've tried (and I've tried every one I could find on Mac and Windows). It's an outstanding editor that I use every day.

Ok, no tabs at this stage. But! The beta is really stable (strong indicator of quality to me ... I have seen finals less stable ;-) ), Xmplify has an advanced feedback system built in and the developers respond quickly. Seems like quality software to me. And at 39$ preorder price it a bargain, bought it.

This is a very mature piece of software considering that it is a beta version.

I especially appreciate that this is a native Mac OS X implementation, not a Java port - I don't really like the small differences between Java programs such as the other XML editors currently available and native Mac OS X programs.

libxml2/libxslt is not exactly the bleeding edge of XML/XSLT parser development, which might make it the software's weak point. On the other hand, I do most of my XML development on exactly the same foundation, so it's perfect for me, and I pre-registered the software right away - at USD 39 it's a steal.

I managed to crash it twice by entering syntactically invalid URLs in schema locations, but considering that it's beta (and recovered my files without any problem) I think that is acceptable.

After over a decade using Emacs for XML/SGML, this is what finally replaced it for these filetypes. Wish the XSD support was stronger, but hey, in time...
