Tonight I tried to figure out how I might be able to write some nice Docbook documentation for this site. The goal is to have a way that I can integrate the docbook content into my wordpress site. I spent some time looking for something that already does this and my search turned up empty. My next step was to look into available stylesheets for Docbook. A quick search using apt revealed some stylesheets. I installed them and attempted to use them using the docbook2* scripts that I’m used to. This proved to be a failure. I then found xmlto via apt (you just have to love apt-cache search). This was the tool I was looking for. This allowed me to use the stylesheets that I installed.
// This produced output using the system default stylesheet $ xmlto -o html xhtml mydocbook.xml // And this used the stylesheet that I had installed $ xmlto -o html -x /usr/share/xml/docbook/stylesheet/nwalsh/xhtml/docbook.xsl html mydocbook.xml
I guess the next thing for me to do is to learn to write my own stylesheet so that the output integrates into wordpress.
