xslt_transform(xml_doc, xslt_doc, is_html = FALSE, fix_ns = FALSE)

Arguments

xml_doc

an XML or HTML document (either a string with XML/HTML, a filename or URL pointing to a file wiht XML/HTML). This can also be the result of a value returned from xml2::read_xml or xml2::read_html, thus enabling it to be used in pipelines.

xslt_doc

an XSLT document (either a string with XML/XSLT, a filename or URL pointing to a file wiht XML/XSLT). This can also be the result of a value returned from xml2::read_xml or xml2::read_html.

is_html

is xml_doc really an HTML? If so, set this (default FALSE)

fix_ns

intercourse the namespaces (highly useful for HTML processing - default FALSE)

Value

Either objects comparable to xml2::read_xml or xml2::read_html (if the XSLT output method was xml or html respectively) or a single-element character vector with the transformed document text.
