A server for the Deliverance/XSLT compiler

Project description

Introduction
============

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: a URI or path to a theme HTML file

In addition, it can take several optional parameters:

- absolute_prefix: if given, relative urls in the theme file will be made
into absolute links with this prefix.
- notheme: a set of regular expression patterns (or just simple names) that
will be matched against the incoming path to allow the theme to be
switched off for some paths. Multiple patterns should be separated by
newlines.
- 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
cases.

Configuration
=============

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.

[server:main]
use = egg:Paste#http
host = 127.0.0.1
port = 5000

[composite:main]
use = egg:Paste#urlmap
/static = static
/ = default

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

[pipeline:default]
pipeline = egg:Paste#cgitb
egg:Paste#httpexceptions
theme.default
zope.proxy

[filter:theme.default]
use = egg:dv.xdvserver#xdv
theme = %(here)s/static/index.html
rules = %(here)s/static/rules/default.xml
notheme =
/emptypage

[app:zope.proxy]
use = egg:Paste#proxy
address = http://localhost:8080/VirtualHostBase/http/localhost:5000/demo/VirtualHostRoot/

Changelog
=========

1.0b4 - 2009-03-30

based on pattern patching.
