MarcEdit’s XML Functions tool gives users the ability to create and register new XSLT functions with the MarcEdit Application. However, one of the questions that occasionally comes up is how do I share or find new XSLT’s that may work with MarcEdit. When a user installs MarcEdit, I provide as part of the installation package a set of XSLT’s for users doing common XSLT translations to and from MARC. However, I write many more that I don’t share and am occasionally sent XSLT’s from users interested in making their crosswalks available to a larger audience. So, I’ve added to MarcEdit the first phase of an XSLT registry. This first part of this update will allow users to search and download XSLT’s that I have an added to the registry. The next enhancement related to this feature will allow users to contribute their own XSLT’s to the application.
So how does it work – well, it’s pretty simple. I’ve uploaded a YouTube video here:
Hopefully this will answer questions – however, if not, feel free to post them here.
