WPWMM4

With wpwmm4 can create web pages with simply ‘make’ and ‘m4’.

Requirements: - make (BSD’s make, use bmake package of your distro) - m4 (compatible with BSD’s m4 and GNU’s m4 too) - some knowledge about HTML and programming

Features: - incremental build (with make) - automatically generated pages (similar webpage with different content) - layouts - expandable, programmable via m4 or can insert output of any program

Nutshell: - convert items of ${TARGETS}: ${SRCDIR}/*.m4 -> ${DESTDIR}/*.html - create items of ${TARGETSMANUAL}: use own programs, scripts - create items of ${VIRTUALS}: use templates from ${VIRTDIR} - can call scripts from scripts/ directory and use their outputs

Example web page is uzsolt.hu (only hungarian language). It has multi-level menu (without Javascript, only pure HTML), automatically generated pages (for example galleries with next and prev buttons). Its source is available at github or own git repo.
