After days of development and testing, I am thrilled to announce that the unofficial packaging work of Tidy has finally reached its end.
Tidy, or HTML Tidy, is an HTML parser, validator and pretty printer developed by Dave Raggett et. al., it can validate HTML/XML documents and beautify it with fine-grained customization options.
The main motivation of packaging Tidy as a snap is that the version shipped in Ubuntu 16.04 is a very old legacy version dated in late 2009, the application has been greatly improved since then and even uses a different version scheme and SCM system. This snap provides the latest official and development(next) release of the
tidy command-line utility in the stable and beta channels.
We are now in the process of contributing this work back to the upstream, stay tuned for more updates!
