BEX - Browser Editor for XML



The textarea is replaced with a javascript-based in-browser XML editor, and the contents are parsed as XML.


BEX intends to be a fully-functional client-side XML editor that is:

  • Simple
  • Extensible
  • Accessible
  • Fast
  • Reliable

The goal (which has not yet been reached), is that a BEX user can make any change to an XML document they require, without making any changes that the user did not intend.


This software is pre-alpha and in deveopment. Key initial goals are:

  • Round-tripping for 100% of real documents
  • A DOM which lets you do anything you should be able to do but nothing you shouldn't
  • An interface that is fully keyboard and touch accessible
