A (very) simple XSLT test utility.

Introduction

With the advent of XML, XSLT has received widespread recognition and use for presenting a human readable view of XML. I'm not going to go in depth into XSL(T) and XML - you can find a lot of resources by Googling.

XSLT Tester supports simple transformations from XML using a self-contained XSLT. It allows you to load resources from files, transform the XML, and view the output (both source and HTML view).

Background

In my daily job as a developer, I use a myriad of small tools to make my life easier, and this is one of them. I'm not posting this because it's particularly clever, but simply because I found it useful in testing XSLTs (for those of us who don't have a XMLSpy license) and so you don't have to write your own. It's very simplistic at the moment, as it only works for self-contained XML and XSLT files, but I am planning on adding additional features (see the "What's next" section below).

Enjoy.

So what's next?

Features I'm planning on adding:

  • Specifying parameters for input to the XSLT.
  • Loading of external resources (includes) in an XSLT.
  • XML and XSLT intellisense and syntax colouring.
  • Any ideas you'd like to share? Ping me.

History

  • 8 September 2006 - Version 1.0 (initial release).
