Rails tidy

Hi,

I am looking at using Tidy to clean up some html, but having a few
problems running it.

The gem seems to be installed ok,

But according to the rDoc I need to give the path of tidylib.so

e.g.
Tidy.path = ‘/usr/lib/tidylib.so’

However this file does not seem to exist, any suggestions on what I may
have missed?
(using ms windows)

did you install tidy itself or just the gem? You’ll need both…

You may need to point to Tidy.dll if you’re on Windows (Just a guess;
I really don’t know…it depends on how they built it).

Hi Mark,

Did you ever get an answer to this? I’m running into the same issue on
OS X.

I have 300 years experience in C and so files on Linux, and I couldn’t
get
that working either.

I only use Tidy in one place. When upgrading legacy HTML to RHTML, I
Tidy it
first, with the command line:

tidy -asxhtml -i -m myFile.html

That cleans up the style, so my assert_xml (generally) works safely on
it in
tests.

Google for my street name and assert_tidy for a great wrapper, to help
you
test legacy RHTML files that are not clean enough for assert_xml.
