I am currently investigating the rewrite of a PHP app in Rails.
One of the few reasonably well designed bits of the PHP app in question
is its rendering layer, which transforms XML generated by the app into
XHTML via XSLT.
I am aware that few existing Rails apps make use of XSLT, but in the
interests of not biting off more than I can chew I’d quite like to
replace the PHP generating the XML while keeping the XSLT in place.
I am confident that I know how to create a Rails app which generates XML
instead of HTML. I’m not confident that I know how to best convert that
XML into XSLT. I would very much appreciate guidance on how to approach
I am aware of the RAA ruby-xslt project, but am not sure if this is the
best place for me to start. Unfortunately the homepage
http://www.rubyfr.net/ is currently down, which doesn’t help, and I
notice that others have experienced problems getting it to work:
Are there any other avenues that I should be exploring? Does anyone have
an example of a Rails app which utilises XSLT that I could see?
Thanks in advance for your help!

Who says I have a one track mind?
