I have been trying to find a way to spellcheck my HTML file's content in Sublime for quality control. I have referenced several articles referring to aspell but after installation and trying to run through HTML files I am having to strip out all tags and its complicated trying to go through all HTML files on a package/project level. Is there a spellcheck tool that I can script with in the terminal that will ignore the tags and check the content? Any other ideas for better implementation I am for it

  • never used it before so if you have some documentation to look at I will give it a shot – DᴀʀᴛʜVᴀᴅᴇʀ Apr 22 '15 at 14:07

Vim's spell checking is smart enough to distinguish between HTML tags and their contents:

enter image description here

Spell checking is not enabled by default, and can be enabled by:

:set spell

The documentation for spell checking in Vim can be browsed using :help spell.

If you have never use Vim before, it can be a bit ... daunting. First install a more full-featured version:

sudo apt-get install vim-gnome

Then run gvimtutor to learn the basics of Vim.

You can use aspell in the command line:

aspell -H check your_file.html

the -H option makes it HTML aware.

if you don't have it just install by:

sudo apt install aspell
