Another XSLT book

    We offer you a small volume book (you can call it a brochure), dedicated to XSLT and its use as a template language when creating sites on UMI.CMS.

    This is not an advertisement for “one more cms”, and “one more template engine”, but only an offer to get acquainted with one of the approaches to using XSLT technology when creating sites where UMI.CMS is taken as a content management system.

    Yes, I do not hide the fact that I work for UMISoft and that we like our XSLT template engine and we all like XSLT. You can even say with confidence that we all truly love XSLT. However, it is difficult to share these feelings with other developers, since the first thing they remember when they say XSLT is thick volumes of 500 to 1000 pages, which they don’t have enough time or energy to read.

    Therefore, this book is specially made short (initially 55 pages of text in Word), and is designed for people who have no idea about XSLT (but still have an idea about HTML and CSS). No deep programming skills are also expected, and, moreover, in my personal opinion, for many developers, many years of experience only make it difficult to start using XSLT “for its intended purpose” and “correctly”.

    The book is specially built on real practical examples, so that you can evaluate the capabilities of the XSLT language specifically for website developers, without delving into the theory and abstract examples from textbooks.

    Without a doubt, some of the points covered in the book are traditionally considered holivistic. I personally do not see anything wrong with this, as this means that there are certain disagreements in the formulation of approaches and understanding of some concepts, and this is a sign that the problem is relevant, and there is something to talk about. Therefore, I wanted to share my opinion and the arguments at my disposal.
