AxKit - Site List
Interested in who uses AxKit?
This page holds a list of sites that wish to let people know that they use AxKit. It is by no means definitive, but if you are proud of a site you have produced please feel free to add the details here by clicking on the "Edit this page" link at the bottom of the page, and adding your details. The XML format should be fairly intuitive ;-)
The Stoop Group is a research group at the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich (INI, part of ETH Zurich and University Zurich). The group's research focus is theoretical neuroinformatics, with recent achievements in the modelling of a biomorphic, electronic cochlea and in the development of new algorithms for object classification and clustering.
Vitus Ltd., a company based in Switzerland, is primarily specialized in selected areas of business re-engineering and interims management. vitus.ch makes use of taglibs to browse the DB-based news archive by year or category and to include a newsticker of the latest news entries. Contents are cached by a custom cache module.
BTW, the site was migrated from a PHP based solution to AxKit in just a couple of days and shows performance improvements of about 300%!
Capitol offers online trading of worldwide commodity futures markets. Provides real-time quotes, Java charts, news, research, broker assistance, managed futures, trading systems, and selected discounted rates.
I created this site for Susan Cressy, Susan is an author of Beauty Therapy, Reflexology and Salon Management books. She wanted a site that she could easily add extra information to and change without understanding html syntax. Axkit, css, sabletron to the rescue. Very happy with the technologies and the support of the Axkit community : )

This is interesting in the fact this is running on Windows. No? Yes! Current configuration is as follows : Apache/1.3.27 (Win32) AxKit/1.61 mod_ssl/2.8.14 OpenSSL/0.9.7b mod_perl/1.27_01-dev PHP/4.3.2-RC2. I broke python unfortunately. This is running multple virtual servers, footer contains links to a virtual server and an external site for project files.
Any questions about the configuration, like 'How did you get it to work?' email me at email@example.com.
Nikki-Site is one of the oldest non-profit, volunteer based Japanese language web diary / blog portal that has been around since 1996. We've recently moved to an almost entirely AxKit-based site.

These are huge (24 and 28 print volumes) resources, and we used Axkit to transform the xml using mostly xpathscript stylesheets. The resources themselves are the most authoritative reference works of their kind, and are flagship products for their publisher, Macmillan press.

Although our site (http://www.howlingfrog.com/) is fairly simple, AxKit helped make it a WHOLE lot easier to keep consistent. Although we'd used XPathScript in the past to do the majority of our transformations, we've moved on to using XSLT now for the majority of things. Although I'm sure we're not stressing AxKit or using all of the various features that it offers, we've been extremely happy with AxKit.
We knew we wanted something that'd let us keep our site content in XML as we've worked with too many customers in the past that ended up with nothing but nightmares because their HTML designer did everything by hand and didn't use any sort of management tool/style.
One really nice thing that AxKit let us do is cascade our stylesheets together when doing transformations. Generally, we build up most of our content with a custom "page" XML schema that we use internally. For other types of pages though (e.g. "software"), we've use a separate stylesheet to take that "software" page and transform it into our custom "page" XML first, and then render that through to the final "page->HTML" transformation. This alone saved us tons of grief that'd otherwise be spent trying to maintain several separate styles that all "look sorta the same". By the time we were done setting up all of the styles, we had it to the point that if we wanted to update the "look+feel" of the site we were down to a single stylesheet that needed to be updated; all of the others just rippled-through and picked up that style on their way out.

Assure24 provides a subscription based network and systems monitoring service, where administrators can view the status of their IT services through our internet based portal. Axkit has given us many benefits in building our interactive portal. For us, though, its main benefit has been in giving us the power to totally re-brand the portal for our resellers through using a different xsl file for each brand. For most of our brands the xsp files are first processed by a 'standard' xsl file which sets up a standard structure for the portal, and then through the xsl file for the particular branding. Future plans include xsl files tailored for mobile devices.
In addition, the main web site of Assure24 Remote Monitoring Services is done in AxKit. The combination of Axkit and CSS provided Assure24 with a lot of power when creating this 5000+ page site.

All about satellite TV and Radio with up-to-date schedule for more than 200 satellite TV channels.
The main pipeline of the site is the following: Postgres database >(data)> Perl scripts >(XML)> AxKit >(HTML)> Browser
Under AxKit transformation pipeline looks like this: Apache::RegistryFilter >>> Apache::AxKit::Provider::Filter >(XML)> AxKit first stage XSLT >(XML)> AxKit second stage XSLT >(HTML)>
The key is two stage processing by AxKit. First stage XSLT is chosen on per-page basis. The second stage XSLT is the same for all pages. It separates browser/internationalization support logic from interface sprecifics. The browser type and language requested is chosen by Perl script based on HTTP_USER_AGENT setting for browser and URI for language. So at the second stage XSLT adds (or removes) attributes from HTML tags based on browser selected. And it removes all text, which is in languages others than selected.
I can't say (yet!) our site is successful. But I'am sure it is very easy to change its look-n-feel or to add languages. Thanks Matt and all the people who contributed to AxKit.

We Daisy Communications use AxKit to drive or corporate site which includes our 2500+ broadband availability pages and soon our 50,000+ pages online business directory. The current site provides our marketing users with a log in so they can update products without getting their frontpage hands on the site : ) . We use xsp, xslt and css. The XML is transformed using sablotron.

We (upmystreet.com) use AxKit to drive our Sky Digital WapTV service. We use our own XSP taglibs built using TagLibHelper to interface into our pre existing perl libraries. The XML is transformed using libxslt.
We use a multiple stage pipeline to simplify the WML creation at various stages. We don't use the internal AxKit cache system, due to us providing customised pages based on postcodes (that's 1.7 million variations of each page). We do however have our own SQL caching layer.
Performance has been excellent, and I've always had a high level of support from the various AxKit support channels.

The University's new web site has been succesfully running AxKit since April 2001. We are especially happy with the way AxKit has enabled us to easily manage the University's community portal.
AxKit's performance is also very satisfying - we are experiencing no delays or troubles serving 850,000+ hits per day.
We have written a complete CMS on top of AxKit, using files accessible through a virtual filesystem as content containers (see Project page). We will publish the source code under the GPL, hopefully by the end of this year...
This on-line companion to the Walker Art Center's recent show 'How Latitudes Become Forms' was developed over a month's time and was the Walker's first use of AxKit. We found the separation of the site's design (using XSLT files) and programming (mostly via TaglibHelper-based taglibs) to be very efficient, and the site's performance under load has been very satisfactory. Based on this experience, AxKit has been selected as the technology that will be used to rebuild the Walker's main website.
I Can't Focus is the personal website of me (Christopher H. Laco). It is built using AxKit for both the static pages as well as a wrapper around my weblog using Apache::Filter and Movable Type.
Distorted Cerebration is just a little blog I put together so that I could learn AxKit (and web design in general). The site is completly dont using AxKit. (Read more here)
The Northeastern University College of Computer Science Volunteer Systems Group uses AxKit to produce much of its content. Most of our site is handled by the AxKit::XSP::Wiki wiki and custom XSLT style sheets for the quotes page, FAQs, etc. We also use XSP to manage the registration and team reports for our Capture the Flag contest.
Website serving DocBook articles for TopicMap related via AxKit. It uses AxKit::XSP::Blog for displaying blog information.
The start of a Multilingual Portal Content Management system. The first content is an English course but watch this space.
Hermann-Ehlers-Kolleg is a student hostel in Karlsruhe, Germany. We use AxKit to transform our XML/XSP-based website with LibXSLT to XHTML1.0 with CSS.
This online reference was created to fill the gaping hole in the available Mozilla developer documentation. It documents Mozilla's Application Object Model, describing each object, method and property a developer has access to, with examples and descriptions. Though no fancy AxKit features are used other than straight-up XSLT, it shows just how rich of a site can be created by merging multiple XML data sources (especially the tool-tip prototype definitions in source-code samples).
Sun Upgrades provides upgrades and parts for Compaq, HP and sun servers. Axkit has given us many benefits in building our online store. The availability and costs of our parts and upgrades can change often so with Axkit, css and XSLT we have been able to provide all our sales people with the ability to update the products online.
Jissen Women's Educational Institute ( http://www.jissen.ac.jp/ ), Tokyo, Japan runs AxKit to serve many public documents. Also compatible with popular Japanese 'keitai' cellphone browsers.
