Trims trailing spaces and tabspaces after each line and trims leading and trailing newlines in a file

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import textTailor from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/text-tailor';



A command line tool for removing extra whitespaces, tabspaces, and newlines in a text or code file. Given a filepath, this tool deletes trailing whitespaces and tabspaces on every line in the file as well as deletes leading and trailing newlines. The original file is overwritten by the trimmed content. If a directory is specified, files in the immediate directory will be evaluated. If the recursive flag -r is set, files in nested subdirectories will also be evaluated. Multiple files and directories may be evaluated at once.


npm install text-tailor -g
