Mod tidy

From Free Software Directory
Jump to: navigation,

mod_tidy works as a filter that hooks up to the (X)HTML output of an Apache 2 webserver. It passes the webservers' (X)HTML output to TidyLib which parses and optional cleans-up and pretty-prints that output. If TidyLib detects an error, the client receives a HTML page with a list of all found errors and warnings that prevent the input of being a valid (X)HTML document. If TidyLib doesn't complain, the client will get and display the (X)HTML data as without mod_tidy. Due to the fact that mod_tidy may affect little response delays of the webserver, its use should be reduced to a developer framework only. mod_tidy is not recommended to be used in a production environment, where response delays of the webserver are undesirable.
