A Rack middleware to process XML through XSLT to generate HTML.
It use the
<?xml-stylesheet ...?> processing instruction found in XML to find wich XSLT to use. It works only if the XSLT is hosted inside the same application as the XML, as it does another call the the same Rack stack to find it.
The process occur only:
- If the file served is a XML (
- and the XML has a stylesheet processing instruction (
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="/teste.xsl"?>);
- and the browser (
HTTP_USER_AGENTheader) has no support for XSLT processing.
If any of these conditions is false, Alexander will do nothing.
The XSLT processing can be forced in a XSLT enable browser passing "
force_xslt_processing=true" as URL parameter (
QUERY_STRING). The parameter name is intentionaly long and specific to minimize chances of conflict.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install alexander
Add to your Rack stack:
If you want to force ALL requests to be processed by the server:
use Alexander::XslProcessor, force_xslt_processing: true
Browsers with XSLT processing support:
- Chrome >= 1.0
- Firefox >= 3.0
- Safari >= 3.0
- Internet Explorer >= 6.0
- Opera >= 9.0
- 0.5.0 - Initial published version
- 0.6.0 - Adding "force_xslt_processing" parameter to URL and config
- Better error handling:
- Invalid XML.
- Invalid XSL.
- XSL page not found.
Content-Typecontrol, make it able to produce things other than HTML.
- Examples of use in README.
- Find XSLT files not in the same Rack stack (probably using open_uri)
