Do you ever need to format some encrypted, auto-generated XML, HTML, or JSON? Well, I do this a lot to debug compressed JSON, HTML, and XML files and I found this great site that not only does formatting for some basic file types but also does a heck of a lot more. Some great things FreeFormatter.com does:

  • Formats files with different indents
  • Validators
  • Encoders/Decoders
  • Minifiers
  • Converters
  • Cryptography
  • String escapers

Check it out and let me know what you think!

  1. What has been your experience with the need to format client sensitive (PII or other) data? Are there any formatters that offer a local or offline install ? Many of my clients shy away from allowing the use of these types of hosted formatters because of this concern, just seeing if you’ve experienced similar limitations and how you’ve overcome them?

    • Good question, I really don’t have a good answer for that however, the Eclipse IDE has a lot of good formatters in it – have you tried that? It’s a bit heavy for just formatting files but it does work.

      • OK – thanks for the reply, I am currently using some plugins within eclipse to format, but was just wondering if anyone has solved this at an enterprise/privately hosted level yet that I wasn’t aware of…
