Very nice review but I wonder does any of them have my dream-like functionality: live filter with column mode

I hope its okay to updtae the thread as things have, moved on a bit in xml, take a look at Liquid XML Editor which is a fairly new entrant but very well built, just look at its fancy graphical interface.

I've also come across Liquid XML Editor, it's not free but it can handle files upto GB and TB size.

mouser recently implemented a mod that allows the export of personal messages. Out of curiosity I tried it out. It works very nicely. The result is a large chunk of xml.

Does anybody know of a free solution to convert xml into, say, PDF or RTF or even just plain text?


Better yet a free application that would display the .xml in a manner similar to that in the forums...

Try  a program called Advanced XML Converter http://www.lisisoft.com/tools/xml-to-pdf.html, it is free but like all free products might be a bit limiting.

The first product on the list (see url above is called Liquid XML Studio, you can take a look at that one if you like but it's not free.

General Software Discussion / Re: Any XML gui tools out there?
« on: April 21, 2011, 08:07 AM »
I have that feeling of deja vu... there was a similar thread recently and I think we mentioned such things as XSLT

I bet there's a few folks who could give you a hand with setting up a stylesheet, and once it's all set up, re-use and customisation should be a piece of cake. While falling off a log.

I don't know of any good, easy tools for XSLT development.

There's a useful XSL link on the W3 site here http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL/

However to answer the question of a  good XSL tool it depends on your platform, some tools are linux, some are windows and some can do both like oxygen and xmlblueprint I think. Where I work we use Liquid XML Editor, but it is commercial and you might be better off with a free one if you are only doing basic stuff.

If the XML files are all the same type, then once you create the XSLT, you're good to go forever. However, if they are all different types, then you will need 1 XLST for each type.

But do check for XSL authoring tools as there might be something out there. I've done it by hand in the past, and don't know of any user-friendly authoring tools, but it doesn't mean they aren't out there.
