It's been consolidated and the newest code has been incorporated into
formhub. We are working to get out some official docs. For now, here are
some reference examples you can follow.
See the message below.
Dear formhub users,
This is just to notify you that formhub's xlsform engine was upgraded at
the end of last week. The library, which is currently named pyxform and
pending rename to xlsform, currently lives at
Exciting new features include:
- Upgraded language specifications.
- Support for calculations through xlsforms
- Support for authoring all widgets available in ODK Collect 1.1.7
Upgraded language specifications
We have made the syntax for authoring xlsforms simpler. Instead of
bind:constraint, you will be writing constraint, and instead of select one
from options, you can simply write select_one options. See
a preview of the new simplified language, and watch http://blog.formhub.org for
more documentation on the new language.
Along with simplification, we have added some language features that were
previously missing, such as the ability to do calculations with xlsforms.
All ODK 1.1.7 widgets can now be created using the xlsform language. See
a replication of the screens in

First, due to the great work of Nathan Breit on the ODK team we'll be
releasing an updated spec of XLS2XForm very soon that consolidates some of
the differences between the ODK and formhub/xform.childcount.orgversions. We've also simplified the syntax a bit and provided better
support for multimedia / calculations, etc. We hope to share more details
on this very soon.
Any update on this consolidation? I'm working on some training, and don't
want to create material on something that's soon to be outdated soon.
