Gems: gem install libxsl-ruby
Download: http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=495
Docs: http://libxsl.rubyforge.org/

Brief description:

Libxsl-Ruby provides libxslt bindings for Ruby. libxslt is a very fast
XSLT engine based on libxml2 (the XML C library developed for the Gnome
project). See http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/ for more information.

Libxsl-Ruby builds on (and requires) Libxml-Ruby
(http://libxml-rubyforge.org). If not downloading via gems you will need
to install libxml-ruby before use.

This is part of an ongoing effort to revive the Libxml/Libxsl-Ruby
projects with the help of original author Sean C..

Thanks, Trans. We're pretty happy to have a release of both libs out
now, and have gotten some interesting feedback already so things are
looking pretty good :)

I'm glad I volunteered, it's been a great way for me to learn the Ruby/C
API.

This looks extremely useful, thanks so much.

Any plans to include the underlying libxml2 stuff in the gem (if that
kind
of thing can be done with gems)

Not at present, we're maintaining libxml-ruby and libxsl-ruby as
separate projects, though the libxsl-ruby gem should offer to install
libxml-ruby if you don't have it already.

I meant the libxml2 stuff, one level further removed (so perhaps my
question
is more about including it in the libxml-ruby gem).

Ahh, I see. I don't think it's something we'll do, libxml2 has it's own
dependencies and configuration and would probably not fit well bundled
in a gem...
