XSL (Extensible Stylesheet Language) and X technologies are renowned technologies in Digital Humanities projects because often Digital Humanities data are available in xml: the standard of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) is XML based and many metadata standards for the description, administration and long-term archiving of data focus on XML. Many systems offer the option of using XML as an import or export format, and when implementing digital editions, XML is usually the basic format for the required web front end.
During the on-site workshop, which will be held in German, the programming language XSL will be introduced. The aim is to achieve the following learning objectives:
The workshop is held in German and will take place in a blended learning format, therefore the following material has to be studied before the workshop. The Workshop is hands-on and aims to be an introduction to simple transformation scenarios in XSL.
The Tool Gallery is supported by CLARIAH-AT.
A good working knowledge in TEI is necessary to participate in the workshop. Please bring your own laptop with Oxygen installed. A free trial license is available here.
