Extended view inheritance
This module was written to make it simple to add custom operators for view inheritance.
Change a python dictionary (context for example)
<attribute name="$attribute" operation="python_dict" key="$key"> $new_value </attribute>
Note that views are subject to evaluation of xmlids anyways, so if you need to refer to some xmlid, say %(xmlid)s.
Move an element in the view
<xpath expr="$xpath" position="move" target="$targetxpath" />
This can also be used to wrap some element into another, create the target element first, then move the node youwant to wrap there.
Add to values in a list (states for example)
<attribute name="$attribute" operation="list_add"> $new_value(s) </attribute>
Remove values from a list (states for example)
<attribute name="$attribute" operation="list_remove"> $remove_value(s) </attribute>
Known issues / Roadmap
- add <attribute operation="json_dict" key="$key">$value</attribute>
- support <xpath expr="$xpath" position="move" target="xpath" target_position="position" />
- support an eval attribute for our new node types
