Do I know anybody who knows #xslt and has some time to help me out? I’m trying to figure out how to use XSLT to transform a Google+ Community export (the Blogger Feed format) into a static HTML. The code I have already does that for posts but I have trouble doing it for comments, too. Example XML, XSLT, link to git repo, all on my blog post: https://alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2019-01-08_Archiving_Google_Plus_Communities
You have the right idea, you need to get the right select line.
But, unless you really need XSLT -- and for a one-time translation, you really don't -- using any real programming language you're familiar with is going to be faster and easier.
I've done a bit of XSLT stuff, but I've only managed by using the simplest of select lines.
Oh, and when I used XSLT? I needed to preprocess it to get it how I wanted.
@yam655 Yeah, I'm starting to think I should just use the JSON export and some Perl to get it right. Ideally I'd also offer it to other G+ refugees, but perhaps Perl 5 is still OK enough. I mean, having xsltproc installed is basically just as obscure a requirement. 😃
