One of the main tasks an XML developer will need to do is to develop a portfolio template. Since OSP uses XSL as the technology to render a portfolio from raw XML data, you will want to be able to run similar transformations on your desktop. Begin by duplicating the template you want to modify and replacing its XSL stylesheet with the passthrough stylesheet. Save the orginal XSL stylesheet (the one you wish to develop) to your local machine. Create a new portfolio using this template and save its source code to your local machine as well.

Setup a transsformation scenario in your XML IDE that uses the passthrough XML and your XSL stylesheet as inputs. You should be able to edit the stylesheet and rerun your transformations and see the results immediately

Thanks, I look forward to the rest of the series. I'd be interested in seeing more about oxygen with some source code of using the API.

An introductory video might be nice to explain the background and context.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.
