A server for the Deliverance/XSLT compiler

Project description


dv.xdvserver is a simple piece of WSGI middleware that can execute the two
step compile-and-run XSLT transforms of xdv.

It takes two required parameters:

- rules: a path to a file containing Deliverance rules
- theme_uri: a URI to a theme HTML file

In addition, it can take several optional parameters:

- live: set to True to recompile the theme on each request, rather than on
startup only.
- compiler: a path to the XSLT file that can turn theme+rules into a compiled
theme. The default, bundled version will probably suffice in most cases.
- boilerplate: a path to the XSLT file that contains boilerplate XSLT
instructions. The default, bundled version will probably suffice in most


You can use this middleware in a Paste Deploy pipeline. Here is an example
configuration file of an application that themes a Plone site running on
http://localhost:8080/demo. Static resources are served from /static.

use = egg:Paste#http
host =
port = 5000

use = egg:Paste#urlmap
/static = static
/ = default

use = egg:Paste#static
document_root = %(here)s/static

pipeline = egg:Paste#cgitb

use = egg:dv.xdvserver#xdv
theme_uri = file://%(here)s/static/index.html
rules = %(here)s/static/rules/default.xml

use = egg:Paste#proxy
address = http://localhost:8080/VirtualHostBase/http/localhost:5000/demo/VirtualHostRoot/

1.0b3 - 2009-03-26

* We now allow local file paths as the theme uri, and let compiler.xsl pick
its own boilerplate.xsl by default if none is given.

1.0b2 - 2009-02-25

* Added console script for compiling the theme offline

1.0b1 - 2009-02-24

* Initial release
