ODF-XSLT Project Announcement

by Sander Marechal

Lone Wolves is happy to announce the ODF-XSLT project. The ODF-XSLT Document Generator is a library written in PHP 5 that brings the full power of XSLT to your OpenDocument files. It enables you to use ODF files as if they were plain XSLT templates. It also includes a few extra parsing options that allow you to edit the XSLT parts of these ODF from within your favourite office suite. ODF-XSLT is developed by Tribal Internet Marketing and is released by Stichting Lone Wolves as Free Software under the GNU General Public License, version 3.

The first release of ODF-XSLT is odf-xslt-0.4 and can be downloaded from our download section, together with a nightly snapshot of the subversion trunk. You can also check out the latest version directly from our subversion repository. The manual and API documentation are available from the project website.


  • Based on the industry standard (ISO/IEC 26300) OpenDocument format.
  • Multiple document types supported (text, spreadsheet, etcetera).
  • Full XSLT support. Since XSLT is Turing-complete, anything is possible (in theory).
  • Templates can be edited from within your office suite, such as OpenOffice.org or KOffice 2.
  • Easily extensible by hooking in pre- and postprocessors.


  • PHP 5.2 or later
  • PHP CLI for the commandline utility
  • libxslt and the PHP XSL extension
  • zlib and the PHP Zip extension


Many thanks to Heini van Bergen from Tribal Internet Marketing for allowing ODF-XSLT to be released as Free Software. Also thanks to Mirko Nasato who's JODReports software was a big inspiratrion for ODF-XSLT.
