HTML cleanup tool & simplifier. For basic & clean HTML 🔧

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/21

I have used other on-line HTML cleanup tools in the past (especially for including parts of web-pages in a blog post), but so far none beats HTML Washer: [Wayback] HTML cleanup tool & simplifier. For basic & clean HTML 🔧

An online tool that reduces HTML to basic tags and attributes. Removes scripts, CSS, and other non-basic elements like , , etc… Also, corrects errors and formats the HTML doc or a fragment.

Reminder to self: script blocks inside .ForEach calls can have Begin/Process/End blocks

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/21

I need to write some tests for this, but it looks like you can use the keywords Begin/Process/End with code blocks when the script block is inside a .ForEach member call.

The behaviour seems to be the same as if these blocks are part of a function that executes inside a pipeline (Begin and End are executed once; Process is executed for each item in the pipeline).

It’s hard to Google on this, as all hits of all queries I tried got me into these keywords in the context of functions.

The below links are on my reading list.

Microsoft documentation:

SS64 docs (which has guidance on which of the 3 foreach constructs to use when):

Social media and blog posts:
