Is there a way to quickly pretty print large XML files without needing an app? Online solutions don't allow for massive files and I'd like to do this without install more junk on my computer.
Macs come with
libxml2 which inclues a tool called
xmllint. You can use this to format your xml with ease. The tool does not have a graphical interface, so you'll need to fire up terminal.
Example 1. Format a file
xmllint --format - < file_to_format.xml > formatted_output.xml
Example 2. Format xml from clipboard
pbpaste | xmllint --format - > formatted_output.xml
