The latest version can be found here. I will also be sourcing the entire Paloose system on BitBucket in the near future. The SourceForge download will shortly be removed (it is not the latest anyway).

Compact version

See the downloads page for a compact version of Paloose to help with performance issues.

Simple Site

There is a download of the Simple HelloWorld site.

Separate log4php

See the log4php downloads page for a discussion of which log4php should be used with the full (uncompacted) version of paloose.

log4php has not been updated to use PHP8 or later and produces many deprecated errors messages. I have managed to get it to work but it is not guaranteed to do so in all cases. So avoid using the logging (full) version of Paloose if you use PHP8. Use a compact version of Paloose only.

Full code of Paloose site

Someone has suggested that the code of this Paloose site is made available, although I have not included all the build files that I use to construct the whole site. While in general I do not like to display my scruffy programming style to the world (although Paloose itself does that), I have made a downloadable file of this site (about 38 Mbytes) — I accept no responsibility for any problems, caveat emptor! I cannot guarantee it is the latest version either.

Documentation Download

For those who prefer their documentation in paper form, I have made a PDF version of the Paloose documentation which should be considered the definitive version.

Example Component Template

I have written an example component here (tgz) that is a "template" for writing generator, transformer and serializer components; also included is an example exceptions class used by the template. Future releases of Paloose will included it in the folder resources/templates/.

Sitemap Schema (RELAX-NG/Schematron)

There is an experimental schema for Paloose sitemaps that I use in conjunction with the oXygen editor. It is distributed in the paloose/resources/schemas/sitemap_RNG_schemas folder. However I have produced a pretty-printed online version here which is slightly easier to read. If anyone is interested in the transforms and style sheets to produce this version from the XML then please contact me.

XSL Transforms for Paloose Site

As an example of the various XSL files that are utilised in the content sitemap for this site, the following shows how a Paloose page is generated (Page to XHTML transform (page2xhtml.rxsl)). It is written in Rexsel that makes it easier to write XSL template files without having to use XML constructions. I developed Rexsel together with a compiler app running on MacOS using a simple text editor that generates the XML code "on the fly". There is a cmmand line version of Rexsel that is used in the build process for making the Web site. It is still work in progress (95% done) but so far the results have encouraged me to finish it.

I intend to release via its own Web site in the coming weeks and if anyone is intereted then please contact me.

Version History

Please see the VERSIONS file that is bundled with the Paloose download for details of older versions (you can also view it here). The compact version is suffixed with "-c" in the version number but otherwise follows the same version scheme.
