Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] GSoC Project Idea: integrated LaTeX output support for the stylesheets
The chunked HTML output of the MySQL Reference Manual (see e.g. http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/index.html) took about 12 hours to build, as opposed to the single-file output which takes "just" about 3 hours. The remaining 9 hours were entirely spent on chunking the HTML with XSLT (aka the DocBook XSL standard way of doing this). Last year, we created a chunker.py Python script that chunks the single-file HTML (which is now the only HTML variant we're building with XSLT), and it brought down the chunking portion of build time to 3 seconds (no joke!).If chunking takes 4x longer then single page HTML then there is either some problem with XSLT procesor you have used and how it's configured or there is some fundamental flaw in stylesheets which should be discovered by using profiler. Which XSLT procesor you have used?
Plain old xsltproc. -- Cheers, Stefan Hinz <email@example.com>, MySQL Documentation Manager Phone: +49-30-82702940, Fax: +49-30-82702941, http://dev.mysql.com/doc ORACLE Deutschland B.V.& Co.
