Python code to generate phpMyAdmin's website using Genshi templates.
- Python - http://www.python.org/
- (2.7 tested, other should work also)
- Genshi - http://genshi.edgewall.org/
- (0.6.0 tested)
- python-feedparser - http://code.google.com/p/feedparser/
- (5.1 tested)
- python-dateutil - http://labix.org/python-dateutil
- (1.5 tested)
To create a new security announcement, copy templates/security/_PMASA_ to templates/security/PMASA-YYYY-N and edit its contents.
Each page has its own template. For most things it means inclusion of other templates to generate full page. These partial includes should be named with underscore as first character (eg. _page.tpl).
To add a new page, simply put a file named something.tpl to the templates directory and it will be automatically used as a template on next run.
All pages should at the end include _page.tpl to get layout and other common things. You can see example page at templates/_sample_.tpl
Static data required for generating pages is stored in data/ folder.
Menu is configured in data/menu.py, the first element always means page name (extension is added automatically) second menu item title.
Themes require additional metadata, which is stored in data/themes.py.
All awards are listed in data/awards.py.
All screenshots are listed in data/screenshots.py.
(See genshi docs for more details).
- $ is special char to indicate template variable, to escape it, use $$
- comments which first char is ! (eg. <!--! comment -->) will not be in output
Directory static contains some special pages, which have to be present on the website. First there is version.php script, which shows most current phpMyAdmin version, which is then offered as an update. The rest are currently just compatibility files with old website - security.php, which redirects security issues to new pages and _redirect.tpl which is used for generating redirects based on data/redirects.py.
The website itself is rendered using render.py, here are options which are currently used for http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/:
./render.py \ --quiet \ --server http://www.phpmyadmin.net \ --base-url /home_page/ \ --quiet-cache \ --log render.log \ --extension php
If you want to make log visible on website, copy it to output folder:
cp render.log output/
And finally rsync it to sourceforge:
rsync -az --delete output/ user,email@example.com:htdocs/home_page/
There is configured automatic build of website, which runs every hour. In case website is not updated, you might want to check the build log for any possible failures:
The script can post new security issues and news to Twitter. You need to have tweepy module for that and configure Twitter credentials in ~/.pmaweb:
[twitter] consumer_key = <consumer key> consumer_secret = <consumer secret> token_key = <access token key> token_secret = <access token secret>
Information about obtaining these OAuth tokens is available at http://pythonhosted.org/tweepy/html/auth_tutorial.html.
