Website generator for phpMyAdmin

This is currently in alpha state, but later it will hopefully replace phpMyAdmin homepage.

Requirements

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)

Security announcements

To create a new security announcement, copy templates/security/_PMASA_ to templates/security/PMASA-YYYY-N and edit its contents.

Page generating

All 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

Menu is configured in data/menu.py, the first element always means page name (extension is added automatically) second menu item title.

Themes

Themes require additional metadata, which is stored in data/themes.py.

Awards

All awards are listed in data/awards.py.

Screenshots

All screenshots are listed in data/screenshots.py.

Markup rules

(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

Special pages

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.

Generating website

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,phpmyadmin@web.sourceforge.net:htdocs/home_page/

Automatic build

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:

http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/render.log
