A Beautiful Site

A free HTML, CSS, and JavaScript beautifier

Ten years ago, I launched DirtyMarkup to clean up dirty code. It was a fun little tool, but its best feature was that it was easy to use and didn't have intrusive advertisements.

I sold DirtyMarkup a couple years ago, and since then the new owners slapped on a header that makes the page scroll and some banner ads. 😒

I missed having my own tool, so last week I built a new one from scratch that’s even better. 💪

The new tool doesn’t use Tidy. Instead, it relies on Prettier for cleaning up HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code. That means it doesn’t require a binary and the results are instant.

If you’re interested in how I built it, I posted a write-up here.
