Happy Cocoon user since the 1.6 days. And independant developper and founder of Le Petit Atelier de Génie logiciel.
I am living in the french-speaking part of Switzerland and focus on cultural and educational projects. In my spare time, I also work for a non-profit non-violent organisation, the Centre Martin Luther King.
I use Cocoon for a variety of purposes, mostly from the CLI and for XHTML and PDF publishing to websites. I love Cocoon's ability to integrate cleanly many different datasources. I also used Cocoon quite a few times in combination with FOP and Batik to produce nice reports.
Somes recent Cocoon-based publications:
- A simple templating system built with Cocoon, which transforms Dreamweaver templates in XSL, and docMini, a bunch of "static" widgets transformed with XSLT, to generate a part of the website.
- A publishing system used to build the entire website, which is available in 5 languages (german, french, italien, rumantsch and english). The translating process and website content updating was quite an overhead for the authors. I used the i18n transformer to generate the translated pages and built a form-based front-end to author the catalog XML contents.
