SCSS

Since getting the lexer and parser in place, implementing the rest of SCSS has been relatively trouble-free, though deciding what, exactly, the API should offer was a bit of a challenge. Hopefully I've got all that stuff ironed out at this point. I can do relatively simple queries against stylesheets and SXML nodes now, including stuff like matching:

foo[bar="baz"]:first-child { color: black; }
to
<snurk>
  <foo bar="baz">
</snurk>
I've registered it as a project on Savannah, so hopefully it'll take off the same way SDOM did. Right. Speaking of which, though...

SDOM

...is still in the shape it was a few months ago, namely that it's good enough for what I wanted to use it for, but I have no idea of its quality as a whole and may never (until I decide to use it for something more than I am right now). I know for a fact that some parts of it will not work correctly (e.g., queries and methods related to node ordering within a document). I've already posted on Savannah, but if anyone here is interested in or wants to learn more about W3 standards or Scheme, there's some fairly easy work to be done fleshing out the test suite for SDOM. You'd basically be converting applicable tests from the W3C's Java test suite to Scheme, which is pretty easy. Respond to the job posting on the Savannah project page if you think you can do this.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
