XML Notepad 2.0

Friday surprise from Microsoft, XML Notepad has rewritten in .net framework 2.0 from C++. It seems that the team did a great job. And best part is it will be available on Codeplex as a community project.

Here are the features that I liked at first view

  • Open source
  • Comes with source code, samples (look at the directory you’ve installed)
  • Very simple user interface
  • Intellisense support based on XSD.
  • Great navigation and adding of XML objects (like element, attribute, comment) simply by providing before and after points.
  • Copy cut paste XML objects
  • Find feature is also nice, it is possible to use regular expressions or Xpath language.
  • XSL Output after the XSLT transformation.
  • Error list similar façon of Visual Studio
