Extensible HTML/XML generator, cross-platform templating language and various other tools

Project description

XIST provides an extensible HTML and XML generator. XIST is also a XML parser with a very simple and pythonesque tree API. Every XML element type corresponds to a Python class and these Python classes provide a conversion method to transform the XML tree (e.g. into HTML). XIST can be considered ‘object oriented XSLT’.

XIST also includes the following modules:

  • ll.astyle can be used for colored terminal output (via ANSI escape sequences).
  • ll.color provides classes and functions for handling RGB color values. This includes the ability to convert between different color models (RGB, HSV, HLS) as well as to and from CSS format, and several functions for modifying and mixing colors.
  • ll.make is an object oriented make replacement. Like make it allows you to specify dependencies between files and actions to be executed when files don’t exist or are out of date with respect to one of their sources. But unlike make you can do this in a object oriented way and targets are not only limited to files, but you can implement e.g. dependencies on database records.
  • ll.misc provides several small utility functions and classes.
  • ll.sisyphus provides classes for running Python scripts as cron jobs.
  • ll.daemon can be used on UNIX to fork a daemon process.
  • ll.url provides classes for parsing and constructing RFC 2396 compliant URLs.
  • ll.ul4c is compiler for a templating language with similar capabilities to Django’s templating language. UL4 templates are compiled to an internal bytecode format, which makes it possible to implement template renderers in other languages and makes the template code “secure” (i.e. template code can’t open or delete files).
  • ll.xml_codec contains a complete codec for encoding and decoding XML.

Changes in 3.6.4 (released 03/19/2009)

  • A new UL4 method join has been added. It works like the Python string method join.
  • ll.misc has three new functions: gzip und gunzip can be used for compressing and uncompressing byte strings with gzip. jsmin can be used to minify Javascript source.
  • Parsing an empty string with tidy=True in ll.xist.parsers.parsestring now works again.
