Paloose (Cocoon without Java)

P: n/a

This was original posted only on the Cocoon Users Group last year but
Paloose is now reasonably
mature enough for exposure on this forum.

Paloose is a simplified (much simplified) version of Cocoon using PHP5.
Cocoon is a means of building
Web Sites using a pipelined XML/XSLT/CSS approach based on sitemaps. I
have used Cocoon for
many years but became frustrated that small ISPs did not support the
Java/Tomcat necessary for Cocoon
other than as a very expensive "professional" addition. Almost ISPs
will support PHP5 and so I decided
to write my version of a simple, cut-down Cocoon in PHP5. Paloose may
also encourage others to start
using XML and XSL without having to use extra bits such as Tomcat,
Jetty or a full Cocoon installation.
Paloose (check it out at supports the
following Cocoon like functions:
Simple XML file generator
XML Template file generator
Preliminary support for Tidy generator (eg Word documents)
XSL transforms
Logging Transformer
Support for multi-language through i18n
XML Write to external file (SourceWriting)
Password Encoding Transformer
Page-hit Transformer
Picture Gallery Transformer
HTML serializer
XHTML serializer
XML serializer
Text serializer
SendMail action
Authentication actions (supporting login and restricted pages)
Browser Selector
Paloose Forms (based on JX forms)
Flowscripts and continuations
Entrty error checking
Associated Pipeline Parameters
Internal-only pipelines
Wildcard and regular expression pattern matchers
Sitemap Resources
Error handling
Simple Resource readers
Sitemap variables and pseudo-protocols
Request parameters
