Paloose (Cocoon without Java)

P: n/a
Hi

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 http://www.paloose.org/) supports the
following Cocoon like functions:
Generators:
Aggregation
Simple XML file generator
XML Template file generator
Preliminary support for Tidy generator (eg Word documents)
Transformers:
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
Serializers:
HTML serializer
XHTML serializer
XML serializer
Text serializer
Actions:
SendMail action
Authentication actions (supporting login and restricted pages)
Selectors:
Browser Selector
Forms:
Paloose Forms (based on JX forms)
Flowscripts and continuations
Entrty error checking
Associated Pipeline Parameters
Internal-only pipelines
Wildcard and regular expression pattern matchers
Redirection
Sitemap Resources
Subsitemaps
Views
Error handling
Simple Resource readers
Sitemap variables and pseudo-protocols
Request parameters
