Write static HTML from flatfile?

 11:52 pm on Jun 13, 2000 (gmt 0)

A little over a year ago, I bastardized Gossamer Thread's "Links 2.0" (non SQL version) script to create static html pages by pouring a flatfile through a template. I remember that adding fields was a tedious task, and do not particularly want to revisit/relearn that IF there is some new, flashy script that is easier. Has anyone seen such a beast?

Something I liked about L2; besides specifying the directory and subdirectories (created on the fly) you could select whether the output pages were to be created as "index.html" or "index.shtml" --this was an all or none proposition, however.

I've not heard of such a script. This may be a question to put to that guy that writes DBman. (the url completely escapes me). He has a flatfile system you can define and I believe there is a export to html option.

Good memory, but we're essentially talking the same script. DBman is also by Gossamer Threads, Links is an expansion of that script. (His name is Alex Krohn.) I guess I'll revisit my old scripts. It is a jaw-dropper to hit the "build" button, btw; 4000 directories and subs and as many index.shtml pages in 6 minutes, each with individual content. Lots of limitations, though.

Looks like we're going to do it in house. As it turns out, I did the layout and design for a template-driven dynamic html-writer back in '96, and had it coded in C by a whiz. I'm going to have him adapt it by adding the path and extension of the file to be written, he says "piece of cake."
