Welcome to Proteus Proteus is an abstraction of general document definition and display markup that allows you to create and reuse complex patterns of structured content. The purpose of Proteus is to allow you to describe documents in terms of their content, abstracting away from the often cumbersome markup or syntax of its native form (for example in HTML). Project Goals: 1. Content-orientation: we should be describing content, not the structure used to display it. 2. Human-readability: it should be easy for a human to write and maintain documents. 3. Flexibility: it should be easy to adapt the solution to solve a wide variety of problems. 4. Extensibility: it should be easy to change the behaviour of the system as it is required. For Users: Proteus works by interpreting document definitions in YAML, for example: Form: - Control: name: name - Control: name: age - Control: name: gender type: select options: - male - female Each camelcase node indicates a "component" - a piece of content which displays in a unique way. In the above example, the "Form" and "Control" nodes are components and the rest of the information describes those components. For Developers: Proteus provides a simple system for describing new component types that permits inheritance and composition of existing types, again in human readable syntax. This allows users to create custom languages from existing components quickly and easily. The Name: In Greek mythology, Proteus is an early sea-god who can foretell the future and change his shape. From this feature of Proteus comes the adjective protean, with the general meaning of "versatile", "mutable", "capable of assuming many forms". -- Wikipedia Homepage: More information is available on the Proteus website, proteus.rubyforge.org or on Github, github.com/wmadden/proteus Licensing: Proteus is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
