Libxml2 is the XML C library developed for the Gnome project. The library code is portable (to Linux, Unix, Windows, embedded systems, etc.) and modular; most of the extensions can be compiled out. Libxml2 implements a number of existing standards related to markup languages, including the XML standard, Namespaces in XML, XML Base, Relax NG, RFC 2396, XPath, XPointer, HTML4, XInclude, SGML Catalogs, and XML Catalogs. In most cases, libxml tries to implement the specifications in a relatively strict way. To some extent, it provides support for the following specifications, but doesn't claim to implement them: DOM, FTP client, HTTP client, and SAX2. Support for W3C XML Schemas is in progress. It includes xmllint, a command line XML validator.
Libxslt is a C library for GNOME which allows developers to work with XSLT. It is based on libxml for XML parsing, tree manipulation, and XPath support. Also included is 'xsltproc', a command line XSLT processor. The library is written in plain C, making as few assumptions as possible, and sticking closely to ANSI C/POSIX for easy embedding. It should work on Linux, Unix, and Windows. Though not designed primarily with performances in mind, libxslt seems to be a relatively fast processor. It also include full support for the EXSLT set of extension functions as well as some common extensions present in other XSLT engines.
itools is a collection of Python libraries which provides a wide range of capabilities, including an abstraction over directory and file resources, a search engine, type marshallers, datatype schemas, i18n support, URI handlers, a Web programming interface, a workflow interface, and support for data formats such as (X)HTML, XML, iCalendar, RSS 2.0, and XLIFF.
xhtml2pdf converts HTML/XHTML/XHML to PDF using the ReportLab Toolkit, the HTML5lib, and pyPdf. It supports HTML 5 and CSS 2.1 (and some of CSS 3). The main benefit of this tool that a user with Web skills like HTML and CSS is able to generate PDF templates very quickly without learning new technologies.
Myghty is a Python-based Web application framework originally ported from HTML::Mason. It supports the full feature set of Mason, allowing component-based Web development with Python-embedded HTML. It also features additional paradigms such as module components, environment-neutral session support, and many more language features. The HTTP connector API includes mod_python, CGI, WSGI, and standalone implementations. It also supports command line and custom non-HTTP environments.
EZ Reusable Objects (EZRO) is a Web application that can be used by non-technical staff to manage content as "objects." Content objects containing text, video, and audio can be shared, modified, and re-styled to appear via a traditional Web site, an on-line course, an innovative "Coach," or as a community of interest site. It is highly scalable and can be used for public Web sites, secure environments, and private intra/extranets.
WikklyText is a Python-based wiki and modular library for creating custom wikitext rendering applications. Its wikitext engine is compatible with the TiddlyWiki markup language. It functions equally well as a wiki-on-a-stick or as a multiuser wiki behind Apache. It includes a Drupal plugin as well.
PottyMouth transforms completely unstructured and untrusted text to valid, nice-looking, completely safe XHTML. PottyMouth is designed to handle input text from non-technical, potentially careless, or malicious users. It produces HTML that is completely safe, programmatically and visually, to include on any Web page. You don't need to make your users read any instructions before they start typing. They don't even need to know that PottyMouth is being used.
Pysite is a tool written in Python to generate Web sites based on the contents of files in a given directory tree. It crawls through a specified directory tree looking for files matching certain configurable patterns (like intro, title-fr, and this-is-another-page-body), building up an output Web page for each set of files found. It features valid XHTML output, support for multiple language output, simple hierarchical templates (just put a template in a directory and it will be used for all subdirectories), and basic plaintext to XHTML conversion.
