Remove HTML Tags from Text String

Instantly remove html tags from a string of content with this online tool. Enter all of the code for a web page or just a part of a web page and this tool will automatically remove all the HTML elements leaving just the text content you want.

This JavaScript based tool will also extract the text for the HTML button element and the title metatag alongside regular text content.

If you need to remove HTML tags then give it a whirl - it works pretty darn well at stripping out those unwanted HTML elements.

How to Remove HTML Tags from Text

This is just a bit of a technical note about removing html elements using JavaScript code so if you're not into the technical details then just skip this part and use the html stripper tool above.

Generally it's preferable to use an approach that leverages the DOM in a graceful way to find and remove the HTML content over an approach that just uses Regular Expressions to find and remove HTML tags.

Because you will encounter malformed HTML, the regex approach can fail in spectacular ways so here I tried to leverage the javascript innerText property to get the job done in a more dependable way.

The Problem with Using InnerText

Using the jaavscript innertext property to remove HTML tags unfortunately doesn't work exactly how I wanted it too so I had to sweeten the deal with some regular expressions to get the text output I wanted.

The big problem, for me, with using innertext to remove html tags was that it would remove script tags but leave the contents in-between the opening and closing script tag in your text content. It also did the same for style tags in those instances where you might encounter some on page style rules.

Although optional, I also added a regex to make the output more readable by getting rid of excess multiple line breaks. It just made the output format a bit more readable.

Anyways if none of these are deal breakers for you then I would just say use the innerText property to remove html tags from your web content. Otherwise you'll need to use some regex to remove the HTML tags.
