In QGIS I'm using the geometry generator to visualize a point shape file as a line with the simple code:

enter image description here

And then I'm doing a graduated styling according to the burial value of those points:

enter image description here

So the end result looks like this:

enter image description here

Now I want to upload this to the GeoServer and use the same styling. But the SLD export of QGIS doesn't support the geometry generator. I can't find any documentation to write this SLD myself. I'm not even sure it's possible in a SLD file. If not, does anybody know a work-around? Maybe exporting the generated line as a line shapefile?

You can create a new shapefile using the same expression created for the Geometry generator in Processing toolbox > Vector geometry > Geometry by expression. This will create a line shapefile that you can export using the SLD exporter.
