GeekWeaver Templating Language
- Create templates in an outliner (OPML files)
- One outline can compile to multiple pages
- Define your own re-usable "blocks"
- For menus, headers, etc.
- Blocks also take parameters, so can be different on every page.
- Markdown support for easy HTML generation
- (Not full support yet because of clashes between Markdown and earlier GW markups. But in-progress.)
- But GeekWeaver can be used to generate any kind of text file.
Make sure you have Python installed on your machine. ( http://python.org/ )
Also, ideally, you should also have Markdown
GeekWeaver will work without Markdown support, but we now use it even for this quick-start demo. It's HIGHLY recommended.
git clone https://github.com/interstar/geekweaver.git gw cd gw/quickstart/ ./go.sh firefox demo/index.html
What did I just do?
You grabbed a copy of GeekWeaver, went into the quickstart directory, ran the compiler on the demo file and looked at the result.
You should now see, in your browser a simple website created from a single GeekWeaver "program" ie. an OPML file.
It's in a frameset with a menu which lets you look at both the pages, and the logs of GeekWeaver compilation.
You should also be able to find links to the source-code of these two pages.
The OPML file which contains the source is gwdemo.opml in the quickstart directory.
