ODF-XSLT Project Announcement

Lone Wolves is happy to announce the ODF-XSLT project [1]. The ODF-XSLT Document Generator is a library written in PHP 5 that brings the full power of XSLT to your OpenDocument files. It enables you to use ODF files as if they were plain XSLT templates. It also includes a few extra parsing options that allow you to edit the XSLT parts of these ODF from within your favourite office suite. ODF-XSLT is developed by Tribal Internet Marketing [2] and is released by Lone Wolves as Free Software under the GNU General Public License, version 3.


The first release of ODF-XSLT is odf-xslt-0.4 and can be downloaded from our download section [3], together with a nightly snapshot of the subversion trunk. You can also check out the latest version directly from our subversion repository [4]. The manual [5] and API documentation [6] are available from the project website.



* Based on the industry standard (ISO/IEC 26300) OpenDocument format.
* Multiple document types supported (text, spreadsheet, etcetera).
* Full XSLT support. Since XSLT is Turing-complete, anything is possible (in theory).
* Templates can be edited from within your office suite, such as or KOffice 2.
* Easily extensible by hooking in pre- and postprocessors.


* PHP 5.2 or later
* PHP CLI for the commandline utility
* libxslt and the PHP XSL extension
* zlib and the PHP Zip extension


Many thanks to Heini van Bergen from Tribal Internet Marketing for allowing ODF-XSLT to be released as Free Software. Also thanks to Mirko Nasato who's JODReports [7] software was a big inspiratrion for ODF-XSLT.
