What's New
Version 3.0 beta 1:
  • Vastly reduced application file size -- XML Nanny.app has gone from more than 20 MB to about 1 MB in size. This is due to jettisoning Xerces C++. XML Nanny 3.0 is based entirely on libxml2 -- and is much better for it.

supposedly XML Nanny has gone "open source"...but sadly that doesn't seem to be the case and appears to be abandoned. one can't even download it from anywhere on the sourceforge page. it's a pity because this software was one-of-a-kind; i would have even paid for it.

Works nicely, but I'm after an even simpler use case. I'd like to be able to validate generated XML snippets without having to save them into a file - could you add a "paste" window that gets saved to some temp file for the checkers to work on?

easy to use, well-designed, and works like a champ. this app was essential to me when taking a class in XML/XSLT. the developer refused(!) to take donations for his work...even though i'd happily plunk down $15 for a great wrapper app like this, because i'd have no idea how to install or use the command line apps. brilliant stuff. thank you so much for this.

This application is a real charm. It does what it aims to with a simple interface. I'd like to be able to double-click on a message that it reports and see the source code directly where it's pointing out a problem, but even without that, this app rocks!

COOLFACTOR, I think that's a 'cool' idea. Watch for this soon.

You know that if you are parsing a local document, you can currently double click a warning or error item in the list and BBEdit will open the source document with that line selected. I need to generalize this to your text editor of choice.

THANK YOU.

Software works exactly as expected, and I finally have a quick, simple, free, and functional XML Validity checker for the desktop.
