xml-sorter
Simple command line utility for sorting xml content by tag name, attribute name and attribute value.

Usage and options

You have to pass a source file to the script with valid xml: ``` xml-sorter path/to/file.xml ``` The output will be rendered on the console. If you prefer you can overwrite the source file with the option -o. ``` xml-sorter -o path/to/file.xml ``` With options -t and -a you can customize the ordering of tags and attributes. ``` xml-sorter -t 'firstTag secondTag' -a 'firstAtt secondAtt' path/to/file.xml ``` Use option -i if you want ignore case. ``` xml-sorter -i path/to/file.xml ``` Use option -s if you want to split one attribute per line. ``` xml-sorter -s path/to/file.xml ```
