Subject RE: ant2html with support for macrodef? (was... RE: Article: Use Jython to Write Ant Tasks)
Date Sat, 24 Apr 2004 22:09:18 GMT
Attached is my version of ant2html.  It is based on, which, like you, I found to
do the basic work nicely but ...  I renamed it so it will not conflict with the original.
You will need to reference wfrant2html.xsl to use it.  I added the support for macrodef
but not scriptdef.  I also fiddled with the formatting a little but it is not up to what I
would really like.  When I have some time I will try to do more with the formatting.  I
will try to add scriptdef support this weekend and make it available to you as soon as it
is ready.

Thanks.  Bill

Mind providing your modified ant2html?  I take it you mean the one from
here, right..

I tried that out and I found it to basically work, except that the
indentation done using &nbsp; entities ended up showing up literally in the
transformed document, so I saw a ton of "&nbsp;" (at least as transformed
by Mozilla).  I'm not a super-whiz with XSLT, so I'm not sure how to get
rid of them.  If your version accounts for <macrodef>, <scriptdef>, and
other things, that would be very useful to me and, I'm sure, others as well.
