MakeStuff contains the Makefiles and associated scripts that I use to build essentially all of my websites and projects, most notably steve.savitzky.net. They have been evolving over the course of several decades (the earliest recorded commit dates back to 1994, and the tree was converted from CVS to git in 2010, but some of the scripts date back at least a decade earlier), so they still contain a certain amount of cruft.
blogging (see blogging/README.md for details.)
blogging.make provides make targets and templates for creating blog
entries and posting them to Dreamwidth (a Livejournal clone) or Jekyll.
It also includes support for activity logs (to.do and yyyy/mm.done).
deployment : Git hooks and related tools for efficient website deployment. Mostly these are designed around a web host that can build the site from the the git working tree
: The general-purpose
*.make files included by
*.make files and associated scripts used in music- and
recording-related subdirectories and projects. These makefiles manage
directories containing lyrics (in
.flk format), and directories meant to
be published on a website. The latter have a subdirectory for every song;
tags are used to determine which have web-visible lyrics.
scripts : Short scripts and fragments, mostly having to do with setting up and maintaining subprojects using git.
: LaTeX styles for formatting FilkTeX ("
.flk") files, plus tools
for translating them into HTML (
flktran.pl) and generating index
Makefile is the heart and soul of MakeStuff. It's really just a
framework: it figures out where the MakeStuff directory is by looking up
the tree, and includes what it needs. It's designed so that you don't
have to maintain a separate Makefile in each subdirectory, just make a
symlink to the one in MakeStuff. Usually, the top-level Makefile in a
project is a symlink to
./MakeStuff/Makefile and everything else links
Makefile looks for the following local include files:
: Only in the top-level directory; this contains make rules,
definitions, and dependencies that apply to the entire tree.
: This contains rules and targets.
: This also contains targets; if you have both, you can use this one
for specific targets with dependencies.
: This contains make rules, definitions, dependencies, and
statements that apply to the current directory. A local
not inherited by subdirectories. Files in
normally included here.
: This contains make rules, definitions, and dependencies that apply to the
current directory. If you have both
depends.make for specific targets with dependencies.
In addition to being on GitHub, this tree is designed so that it can easily be
published on a website. The
Apache web server puts a
HEADER.html file, if you have one, at the top of a directory listing;
README.html at the bottom, after the file list. With a
little tweaking you can get similar behavior with plain-text
README, but you can't always count on having enough control over a
hosted website's configuration.
: What it says on the tin -- the license for this project and
: The to-do list for this project. The format is trivial: an open circle
(lowercase "o") is something that's not finished yet; a filled
circle (asterisk) is finished. "~" indicates something I've decided
not to do, and "?" indicates something I'm dithering about.
Eventually finished items move to a "done" section or, when they
start getting moldy, a separate file.
