Transform an XML document by applying an XSL stylesheet. Usually returns the transformed xml_document, unless the stylesheet has <xsl:output method="text"> in which case we return a text string.

xml_xslt(doc, stylesheet, params)

xslt_version()

Arguments

doc

xml document as returned by xml2::read_xml

stylesheet

another xml document containing the XSL stylesheet

params

named list or vector with additional XSLT parameters

Details

This implementation supports XSLT 1.0 features plus most of the EXSLT set of processor-portable extensions functions. Unfortunately XSLT 2.0 or 3.0 features are only available in proprietary libraries and currently unsupported. However XSLT 2.0 is not widely adopted anyway because it is unavailable in most browsers.

Examples

doc <- read_xml(system.file("examples/cd_catalog.xml", package = "xslt")) style <- read_xml(system.file("examples/cd_catalog.xsl", package = "xslt")) html <- xml_xslt(doc, style) cat(as.character(html))
