The XSLT C library for GNOME

Snap icon

After a few hours of development and testing, I am thrilled to announce that the unofficial packaging work of The XSLT C library for GNOME has finally reached the release point.

libxslt is an XSLT C library developed by Daniel Veillard et. al., you may learn about XSLT here.

The main motivation of snapping libxslt is that I want to experiment how build-snaps works by using the existing libxml snap as a build snap, unfortunately, it turns out that what I really need is stage-snaps instead, which isn’t implemented in Snapcraft yet. This snap features the latest release, release candidates, and development snapshots of the libxslt library and its command-line utility, xsltproc.

Currently the upstream is not interested in maintaining this snap, we are currently subscribing the upstream mailing list to track their new releases in order to (hopefully) keep the snap up-to-date.

How to Install

# Install the snap #
sudo snap install libxslt

# Connect the snap to optional security confinement interfaces #
## For accessing files under `/media`, `/run/media` or `/mnt` ##
sudo snap connect libxslt:removable-media

# Launch the application #

## If you want to use the `xsltproc` alias
snap alias libxslt.xsltproc xsltproc
