Axel : an new Android XML Editor

Written by Xavier Gouchet - 05 october 2012 - no comments

Sometimes, for many reasons, I have to read, or edit an XML document from my phone. Although my Text Editor, Ted does this very well, it's not entirely perfect to edit a markup text.

Searching on the play store for a solution brought me no satisfaction : either apps were paid, specific for HTML or not user friendly. So, I decided to create one, and here it is.

Axel - a XML document Axel - Context menu

Axel displays any (well formed) XML or HTML file in a tree, and let you edit each node, with proper validation and syntax coloration.

In the future, I'll add the option to drag'n drop nodes anywhere in the tree, handling Doctype validation, and add suggestion for tag names and attributes according to XSD / DTD.

You can download it from the Play Store, and if you see anything that you would like to have in this app, please let me know !

Felix : A new version of my Felix' plorer

Written by Xavier Gouchet - 18 september 2012 - no comments

It's always a strange feeling to dig out some code written several years ago.

After the big rewrite of Ted, my most successful app, as well as making a new icon set myself, I decided to rewrite my File Browser app to have some coherence between my utility applications

Felix - browsing and options

In the process, I also added some features who where missing for a 2012 app, like multiple selection (only available on Honeycomb and higher), or zip file management (archive, extract), or a grid view.

Now Felix is available in its latest version with a brand new look and feel, and more powerful than ever, and can be downloaded from the Play Store.
