Template Engine

A simple syntax and web front-end for generating and modifying write-up templates. Usable, but not thoroughly tested and could probably stand to have a few more features.

How to use

Step 1: Grab it with git clone https://github.com/F1ak3r/Templater.git, install dependencies with bundle install and start the server with ruby router.rb.

Step 2: Then navigate to localhost:4567 in your browser. You should see this:

Templater

Step 3: Write a template in your favourite text editor.

How to write a template:

Here is some normal text. This is a <<variable>> for an insertion point. Include the same <<variable>> in multiple places to save labour.

{{|stuff> You can choose |otherstuff> One of these |yetotherstuff> Or you can leave the whole section out. {{|nested1> You can also <<nest>> elements. |nested2> Super rad! }} }}

{{|stuff> Include the same sets of options |otherstuff> In different sets |yetotherstuff> In order to vary text in multiple places with a single choice. }}

Step 4: Save your template to disk and use the upload button to load it into Templater.

Step 5: Play around with it: change options, enter text for variables.

Step 6: Finally, copy-paste the resulting text to wherever you need it to be.

Why this exists

Templater is an experiment in developing a graphical interface for quick and painless manipulation of mostly standard passages with minor variations and some dynamic content. Also I wanted to write a parser.

I don't really know whether it's going to prove particularly useful or not, but I had fun making it.

Acknowledgements

Uses Treetop for parsing and Sinatra for web stuffs.

This is an experimental tool meant for personal, loopback use only: it is not production-ready and certainly crawling with bugs and vulnerabilities.
