HaXml is a suite of libraries and tools for manipulating XML documents in Haskell. It includes a parser, a pretty-printer, a validator, a combinator library for transforming documents, and converters for changing a Haskell datatype into an XML DTD, and for changing an XML DTD into a set of Haskell datatypes. There are also tools for a query language based on XQL.
IDX-DocBook2LaTeX is a stylesheet which translates DocBook documents into LaTeX. It is written in Perl, using the XML::XPathScript package from AxKit. It features the ability to handle tables, indices, figures, footnotes, and more. The XSLT-like templating philosophy built into XPathScript makes it easy to extend.
XML::Template is a highly configurable X(HT)ML document processing framework designed for constructing Web sites and Web applications. The essential framework provides document parsing and caching, scalar, array, nested, and XPath variables, and subroutines. Plugin modules can be easily added to extend the available tag set using XML namespace conventions. XML::Template comes with numerous plugin modules that provide tag sets for variable iteration, conditionals, exception handling, and database queries and iterations. It also comes with a Web site administrator and content management application designed entirely using the XML::Template framework and included plugin modules.
HEBCI is a technique that allows a Web form handler to transparently detect the character set with which its data was encoded. By using carefully-chosen character references, the browser's encoding can be inferred. Thus, it is possible to guarantee that data is in a standard encoding without relying on (often unreliable) Web server/browser encoding interactions.
Dexter is a tool that allows users to define extended attributes which can be associated with descriptors and editors. These attributes can be embedded into any well-formed XML document. The resulting embellished document, the 'source', is then input to the dexter engine. This will generate one or more XSLT stylesheets describing the input document interpolating editor modifications and any instructions specified by the descriptors. As dexter's operations are specified exclusively with extended attributes, all but the most unforgiving of XML content viewers will continue to see the decorated source exactly as the designer saw it before.
Soundboard is a sound cueing program designed for theatrical use. It aims to be simple to use and maintain cross platform compatibility so that a sound designer who uses a Mac can build a show and have it play back on the theatre's Windows-based playback computer. Soundboard provides a cross platform and open source alternative to programs such as QLab and SFX. It is designed to be simple enough for high school students and community theatres to use, and yet robust enough to be a viable application at a regional theatre.
