indent HTML

You have an ugly HTML and you want to indent it nicely. For instance you want to scrape something from it, but first it would be a good idea to indent the source.

The program “tidy” can do that. Create the following config file (tidy_config.txt):

indent: auto
indent-spaces: 2
quiet: yes
tidy-mark: no

Then call tidy the following way:

$ tidy -config tidy_config.txt ugly.html > nice.html

Tip from here.
