XiMpLe XML editor

XiMpLe is an xml editor based on a table grid view (the same nodes are arranged in tables).
The editor is free for non-commercial use and it can be used without installation (in fact it's a portable windows application).
There are available also XML splitter, XML joiner for large xml files and a light text editor.

Simple and minimal preparation: just download the exe file (one file, approximately 0.7MB), place it somewhere on your hard disk or flash-drive and run it.
It should run on Windows XP (32 bit only), Win 7, 8 and 10 (.NET Framework 3.5 or 4.0 is required).

XiMpLe features:

A grid view for a simple xml file

Do you need to edit xml files and you don't want to care about xml rules?
Do you need to transfer data from your spreadsheet editor to xml file in a comfortable way?
Is your xml file too complex or without spaces and it's hard to read it in a text editor?
Do you need to split a big xml file into smaller editable pieces and then join it all together?
Do you need some special and tailored functions?
▸ Use XiMpLe and you will not regret. Who once tried no longer wants otherwise ;-)

A few words about genesis:

Originally I was looking for some xml editor which would be able to do several simple tasks:
- display xml data in tables (data grid view)
- be able to select several cells or rows in a table and copy their values to an external editor
- then paste modified values back to the table over old values or add them in new rows
- searching and replacing texts (ideally using wild cards) over elements and values in tables

Surprisingly there were only a few editors which display xml data in tables. And in this small set I didn't find any free (or cheap) editor which was able to fulfil my requirements (the professional ones were quite expensive maybe because they contain many additional functions for transformations and other stuffs which I don't need).
Thus I started to develop the xml editor to make my work easier...
