Check XML and XHTML documents for Well-Formedness and Validity while editing them in TextMate with support for DTD, W3C XML Schema, RELAX NG, Schematron, XInclude, XML Catalog, and XPath 2.0 Visualizer.
To install, just download XMLMate Plug-In, unzip, and double-click. Then launch TextMate and select Show XMLMate Palette from the Window menu.
The XMLMate Plug-In adds an XML parsing palette to the popular TextMate text editor for Mac OS X. While editing an XML (or XHTML) document in TextMate, you can open the XMLMate palette to conveniently check your document for well-formedness or validity against a DTD, W3C XML Schema, RELAX NG schema, or Schematron schema. Here's how:
11/01/07 - Version 1.4.2: works with TextMate 1.5.7. If you are using TextMate version 1.5.7 or later, you will need XMLMate 1.4.2 or later. Earlier versions of XMLMate will not work with TextMate 1.5.7 or later. I've also added a user default for making the XMLMate panel a non-floating window:
defaults write com.macromates.TextMate XMLMateFloatingPanel -bool NO
1/10/07 - New in Version 1.4: XPath Visualization. In the new 'XPath' tab, execute XPath 2.0 expressions against your front most TextMate document and view the matched nodes.
01/03/07 New in Version 1.3: XML Catalog Support
There's a new Catalog tab in the XMLMate palette that allows you to construct and edit an XML Catalogs for use when parsing XML with XMLMate.
XML Catalogs is an Oasis standard that allows you to map (usually remote) URIs used in XML documents to alternate (usually local) resources. XML Catalogs are themselves expressed in XML.
In a nutshell, the new XML Catalog features allow you to easily configure XMLMate to substitute local resources (like DTDs and other schemas) for remote resources referenced by URLs. This allows, for example, convenient validation of XHTML documents against a local (possibly customized) copy of an XHTML DTD without having to change the URLs used in the XHTML doctype to local file paths. Parsing/validation with local schemas is much faster and allows offline validation.
12/30/06 - New in Version 1.2:
12/28/06 - Version 1.1 now supports Schematron!
XMLMate is powered by libxml. Many more features are planned for the future.
XMLMate is written in Objective-C and C, and is based on:
XMLMate requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later.
