[ANN] webgen 0.4.0 released

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Thomas Leitner, Jan 5, 2007.

  1. Hey all,

    finally a new webgen release :) More information and install
    instructions below!

    Thanks for all the help and feedback!




    webgen is used to generate web pages from page and template files. You
    create one or more template files in which you define the layout of
    your page and where the content should go. After that you create page
    files in which you only define the content.

    When webgen is run it combines the template with each of the page
    and generates the HTML output files. During this process special tags
    are substituted so that, for example, a menu is generated.

    More information on webgen can be found on its homepage:

    Major changes

    However, you can also use the included setup.rb installation method:

    Or all commands together via

    I do not really know what the advantage of this would be! Which .rhtml
    files should webgen generate, more specifically, what should be the
    content of the .rhtml files?

    Could you state a use case for using webgen in conjunction with Rails?

    I would be willing to do something like this if you provide some more
    information about what the result should be.
