Excesselt

http://github.com/DanielHeath/excesselt

DESCRIPTION:

Excesselt is a ruby library that I built because I hate XSLT.

I've extracted it from an app I built for my work at Lonely Planet.

Excesselt solves the same problem as XSLT does (that is, how can I transform this xml document into some other format).

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

Nice syntax. Testable, reusable xml transformation Tested on REE 1.8.7 - TODO test on more platforms and update this section

SYNOPSIS:

class MyStylesheet < Excesselt::Stylesheet
  def rules
    render('parent > child')     { builder.p(:style => "child_content" ) { child_content }  }
    render('parent')             { builder.p(:style => "parent_content") { child_content }  }
    render('text()')             { add element.to_xml.upcase                                }
  end
end

MyStylesheet.transform <<-XML
<parent>
  <child>Use Excesselt</child>
</parent>
XML
-> <p style="parent_content"><p style="child_content">USE EXCESSELT</p></p>
