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.

Settling on PowerGUI for PowerShell development

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/08

Preparing for another PowerShell article, I found this blast from the past, as somehow this missed the publishing schedule back in 2014!

Original text

After struggling with [Wayback] PowerShell ISE for a while ([Wayback] it started as a proof of concept and wasn’t meant to be an IDE you know) reading [Wayback] Powershell Studio vs Primal Forms Free CE vs PowerShellPlus Pro (also free) – Spiceworks, I’ve started using the free [Wayback] PowerGUI IDE for PowerShell by Dell.

The [Wayback] free PowerGUI used to be maintained by Quest, and after [Wayback] the acquisition of Quest by Dell in 2012, it is still free and is now at Product Support – PowerGUI Pro.

It is great (even got [Wayback] full support for PowerShell 3.0) and you can get it at the [Wayback] PowerGUI Downloads.

  • the text editor is the only reliable place to remove them. Search for  .
