Simple xml reader for a transmogrifier pipeline

Project Description

A simple transmogrifier blueprint to read xml files of the form



The following example uses funnelweb and ploneremote to upload content in an xml file from the commandline

First create a custom pipeline.cfg

pipeline =

blueprint = transmogrify.xmlsource
xmlfile = items.xml
pathtag = field1
itemtag = item
type = MyCustomType

blueprint = transmogrify.ploneremote.remoteconstructor
target = http://admin:admin@localhost/Plone/mycontent

blueprint = transmogrify.ploneremote.remoteschemaupdater
target = ${ploneupload:target}

Now install funnelweb using a buildout.cfg

parts = convertxml

recipe = funnelweb
eggs = transmogrify.xmlsource


$> easy_install zc.buildout
$> buildout init
$> bin/buildout

and now run your custom converter

$> bin/convertxml

The converter parses the xml and uploads to plone via xmlrpc. or construct your own pipeline to transform the content into whatever or whereever.
