XSL transformation for Microsoft Word .docx files

Project description

docx-xslt is a Python library for adding XSL transformation for Microsoft Word .docx files without XML or XSLT coding.

The module uses Word meta text which has been formated with a specific character template called XSL, add XSL code and applies XSL transformation with the XML context.

The meta text has the following syntax:

<meta text> ::= <command list> <command list> ::= <command expr> | <command list> <command expr> ::= ‘xsl’ ‘:’ <context expr> <xsl command expr> <xsl option expr> <context expr> ::= ‘:’ <context type> | <context type> ::= ‘body’ | ‘p0’ | ‘p’ | ‘r’ | ‘t’ | ‘tbl’ | ‘tr’ | ‘tc’ <xsl command expr> ::= <meta command> | <xsl command> <meta command> ::= ‘meta’ <meta sub command> <meta sub command> ::= ‘up’ | ‘prev’ | ‘next’ | ‘cloneprev’ | ‘clonenext’ | ‘delete’ <xsl command> ::= ‘for-each’ | ‘choose’ | ‘when’ | ‘otherwise’ | ‘if’ | ‘sort’ | ‘value-of’ | ‘text’ <xsl option expr> ::= <text> | <xsl option name> ‘=’ <xsl option value> <text> ::= … <xsl option name> ::= ‘select’ | ‘test’ <xsl option value> ::= xpath expr

To insert a list of a product names, just add xsl:for-each select=.//products/* xsl:t:value-of select=name and format the text with the XSL template.
