XSD and XLST resource downloader for local storage

The purpose of this library is to download recursively XML resources from the internet to a local storage for further usage. At this moment it only allows Schemas (XSL) and Transformations (XSLT) but is easely extensible implementing the RetrieverInterface interface or extending the AbstractXmlRetriever class.

For every downloaded file it will override its dependences to a relative location, in this way, every dependence should be available to work offline.

You can use the local object PhpDownloader that simply uses copy function to get and store a file from internet. You can also use your own implementation of the DownloaderInterface according to your needs. If you built a configurable and useful downloader class feel free to contribute it to this project.


Use composer, so please run

composer require eclipxe/xmlresourceretriever

Basic usage

 * This will download the file into
 * /project/cache/
 * and all its includes and imports (currently 27 files)
use Eclipxe\XmlResourceRetriever\XsltRetriever;
$xslt = new XsltRetriever('/project/cache');
$local = $xslt->retrieve('');
echo $local; /* /project/cache/ */
