Install XML validation tools in Sublime Text 3 on Windows
In many ways a developer comes across XML files, especially when dealing with SOAP services.
Exalt is an awesome package for Sublime Text 3, my text editor of choice. It offers validation of XSLT files, of XML against an XML Schema (XSD) and more useful features. It can even cache W3C specification documents to speed up validation processes.
Last week I had to figure it how to install it on Windows. It is not an intuitive task to perform compared to the *nix world. So here it is a short guide that may help you.
- Download libxslt, iconv and libxml2 from here
- Extract the files and put the content of
\binfolder in each zip into
C:\xmltoolsto PATH environment variable for your user (instead of system, safer)
- Install Exalt from Package Control on Sublime Text.
