XLSFORM server down 3rd March 2014

The XLSFORM server is down most of Monday March 3. Sorry if this is the
wrong place to post. We have several teams in Kenya and Uganda that need
to make forms today and tomorrow if at all possible.
Thanks!

Hi Luke,

The server is in Seattle and it's still very early here. I'm sure when
the core team wakes up, and has the time, they'll take a look.

This is not the first time the XLSForm server has had issues and it
probably won't be the last.

pyxform, the library that does the XLS conversion, runs offline. I'd
recommend you install that and rely on that instead. See
https://github.com/UW-ICTD/pyxform and
https://github.com/UW-ICTD/xlsform.exe/blob/master/README.md to get
started.

I am currently having the same problem as Luke is. Any help?

Thanks, Yaw.

I will try that. But, as I recall we tried this about 6 months ago and the
offline converter wasn't able to process our forms. The readme file says it
is often out of date. Maybe it cannot handle cascading selects or
something else that we are doing?

Luke you can use formhub to do the conversions and then export out the
xform by xml.

Thanks, Matt. I had no idea this other converter existed. Great tip!

To be clear - this is the link to the online converter that I was unable to
use: http://opendatakit.org/use/xlsform/
