What is Listify?

Listify is a very simple free service for web developers which allows you to convert raw text to html's 'list' or 'option' elements by choosing various options like delimiter, type of lists and ignoring digits. This is still in Alpha stage and we would love to hear some suggestions for new features that you would like. Drop us a feedback on our Email or leave a comment.

How will it help?

Using listify you can speed up your HTML coding process when you need to include large lists or option elements in your code. For example, if you require option elements like country names, then you would have to add the tags to 257 names, which obviously will take some time. Using Listify, it would take just three seconds. You can know more about it here.

How to use it?

Using Listify is pretty easy. All you have to do is paste the text in the text box above, configure your options as per your requirements and just click on the generate button. You can place any raw text and choose a delimiter to divide it into the list / option elements. Basically, it involves three steps to generete list via Listify:

  • Copy text from your desired source.
  • Paste it in the text box, configure the options.
  • Copy the generated list from the dialog box, paste it in your code
  • Now you can utilise your saved time the way you want to :)

What are these options?

List Type

This option enables you to choose what kind of list you want generated. Whether it is a list element <li> for an unordered / ordered list or an option element <option> element for the <select> tag.

Delimiter

A delimiter is a sequence of one or more characters used to specify the boundary between separate, independent regions in the text you want to be converted. It means that how you want your text to be divided into the list elements. For example, if a text is a,b,c and the delimiter is , then the list will be generated as <li>a</li><li>b</li><li>c</li>

Ignore Digits

Many a times there are unwanted numerical digits present in the text which we do not want to be included in the list / option item. This option enables generating the list ignoring the digits present in the text. For example, if you want to convert a numbered list to an unordered list, then just copy the list, select this option and the list items will be generated without the numbers.
