Adds more operators for view inheritance

Project Description

Extended view inheritance

This module was written to make it simple to add custom operators for view inheritance.


Change a python dictionary (context for example)

<attribute name="$attribute" operation="python_dict" key="$key">

Note that views are subject to evaluation of xmlids anyways, so if you need to refer to some xmlid, say %(xmlid)s.

Move an element in the view

<xpath expr="$xpath" position="move" target="$targetxpath" />

This can also be used to wrap some element into another, create the target element first, then move the node youwant to wrap there.

Add to values in a list (states for example)

<attribute name="$attribute" operation="list_add">

Remove values from a list (states for example)

<attribute name="$attribute" operation="list_remove">

Known issues / Roadmap

  • add <attribute operation="json_dict" key="$key">$value</attribute>
  • support <xpath expr="$xpath" position="move" target="xpath" target_position="position" />
  • support an eval attribute for our new node types
