Simple xml reader for a transmogrifier pipeline

Project description

A simple transmogrifier blueprint to read xml files of the form

<container>
  <item>
    <field1>value</field1>
    <field2>value</field2>
    ...
  </item>
  ...
</container>

Example

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

First create a custom pipeline.cfg

[transmogrifier]
pipeline =
    xmlsource
    ploneupload
    ploneupdate

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

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

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

Now install funnelweb using a buildout.cfg

[buildout]
parts = convertxml

[convertxml]
recipe = funnelweb
pipeline=wynhotels.cfg
eggs = transmogrify.xmlsource

bootstrap

$> 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.
