Wed is a schema-aware editor for XML documents. It runs in a web browser. It is being used in a project for editing scholarly articles. We aim to make it extensible by means of a stable API.


  • Supports RNG schemas.
  • Validates during editing.
  • Provides guided editing on the basis of the schema used. The user can use a contextual menu to insert new elements or attributes and only the elements or attributes that are valid in the location of the caret are presented.
  • Can represent XML structures in a way that is closer to XML (i.e. show where the start and end tags are located) or in a stylistic way (e.g. section headings in bold) in the same view.

Support for TEI

TEI is the standard used to test wed. It is possible to use a TEI ODD to produce a schema and documentation that wed can use so that the user can query the documentation as they edit.


As of version 0.20.5, wed only has an English interface.

Sample implementations

The BTW project uses wed for editing lexicographic articles. The articles themselves are accessible to the public but the editing part is unfortunately accessible only to the team of scholars that produce the articles.
