Welcome to the list!

Have you considered experimenting with the Saxon/CE product?


This implements client-side XSLT 2.0 in modern browsers. You will find XSLT 2.0 far better than XSLT 1.0.

My own experimentation with Saxon/CE is realized on this page I created for my fellow members of a standards committee:


I, too, use Python as my programming language of choice for anything non-XML-related. But if the input is XML I have come to believe XSLT is the only way to go to process it. And Saxon/CE means you don't have to give up on XSLT 2.0 if you need do client-side processing or to create interactive web sites based on XML content.

I'm confident that if you are interested in XML processing, XSLT will do wonderful things for you. I built a career and then retired on the success of teaching and implementing XSLT and XSL-FO for clients around the world. It was a wonderful run!

Good luck!

Hello everyone,

My name is obviously Kevin, and I joined this group due to my interest in XSLT/XML technology. I am mainly using on the browser client side of things, so I am limited to version 1.0 of XSLT.

My main programming language of choice is Python, of which I have been using since 2010. I use python for both general application programming and of course Web development. Python is my goto language for almost everything.

My operating system of choice at both home and work is Linux. At work, I use RedHat enterprise Linux, and at home my preference since 2002 is always Debian.

My occupation is a Build and release developer for a product only the Europeans here may know of, Neteller. At work I currently don't use XSLT, but I am trying to incorporate it in various projects I work on, where it can be useful.

I am currently in the planning stages of developing a client side only blogging platform written entirely in XML using XSLT for templating. A couple years back I was in the process of converting one of my then somewhat popular blogs, PythonDiary, to use XSLT entirely and browser based XSLT templating. I never ended fulfilling thIs unfortunately.

I personally see a huge value in client side XSLT transformations, as it vastly reduces both server load and minimizes overall bandwidth for both the server and client side. I see XSLT as a very efficient content delivery system with lots of potential.

After a few days of research, it doesn't seem like any major browser players plan to deprecate browser based XSLT transformation. Even Microsoft's Edge browser supports XSLT, as even Microsoft sees value in supporting it on the client side.

So that's my introduction, questions?
