Hello everybody,

I needed something to validates my HTML templates so I wrote a plugin
and here is its first version:

RailsTidy is a plugin for Ruby On Rails. It allows you to

    * validate your rhtml templates,
    * validate the html output of your functional tests,
    * clean the html generated by rails.

For doing all this, it uses

    * Tidy[1], the popular HTML validator and
    * RubyTidy[2], Ruby bindings for Tidy.

More on the RailsTidy[3] page.

    * Installation instruction, usage and so on
      are at,
    * Source tree is at,
    * Tarball is at


I've seen in recents posts that people where looking for something
to clean their HTML output. The plugin can do it, but this hits
quite a bit.

Hope this helps some peoples,



PS: If someone has the correct mail for the ruby tidy bindings author,
can he
send it to me ? The rubyforge adress seems to not be valid anymore.

Oh, and I hope this time my server is correctly configured. There should
not be problems, but if you experiences some, please be patient.

He roundhouse kicks the cows and the butter comes straight out.

Oooh, Nice!

validating html has always been a pain because its so easy to forget to
validate the pages after you edit them, this is going to come in handy.
