A Saxon user on the Saxon-CE github mailing list proposed a way to use XSLT
with Node.js.  I have never used Node.js, but it seems like an interesting
project from its description.
I am asking if anyone from the XSLT community who has experience of using
node.js would find this project of use and interesting. See email below from
github user rimmartin:

for nodejs I put some c++ glue together to make a V8/node module work with
Saxon/C http://www.saxonica.com/saxon-c/index.xml
<http://www.saxonica.com/saxon-c/index.xml> instead of Saxon-CE. Typical node
code is

    var content = yield fs.readFile(global.inputXmlPath, "utf8");
    var saxonProcessor = new saxon.SaxonProcessor(false);
    var xsltProcessor = saxonProcessor.newTransformer();
    var pdbContent = xsltProcessor.xsltApplyStylesheet();
catch (err) {
Works like a charm. It is based on nodejs --harmony using the new yields and

Would this be of interest to the xslt and node communities?

To do: I need to implement parameters and properties. Can readily add xquery
processor as well.
