Creating a pdf of your favorite tweets with Apache FOP.

This post describes how I created a PDF document from a set of twitter statuses.

I created a XSLT stylesheet transforming a twitter status as XML.

This stylesheet is available on github at: https://github.com/.../twitter/status2fo.xsl.

The stylesheet transforms the XML file generated by the twitter API (e.g.:http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/show/44175380516585472.xml) to XSL-FO.

This xsl-fo is then processed by Apache-FOP to generate a PDF.

fop -pdf result.pdf -xml status.xml -xsl status2fo.xsl



That's it,
