Website Meta Language

``WML is the Unix toolkit for getting
  your webdesigner's HTML job done.''

WML is a free and extensible Webdesigner's off-line HTML generation toolkit for Unix, distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL v2). It is written in ANSI C and Perl 5, built via a GNU Autoconf based source tree and runs out-of-the-box on all major Unix derivates. It can be used free of charge both in educational and commercial environments.

WML consists of a control frontend driving up to nine backends in a sequential pass-oriented filtering scheme. Each backend provides one particular core language. For maximum power WML additionally ships with a well-suited set of include files which provide higher-level features built on top of the backends core languages.

While not trivial and idiot proof WML provides most of the core features real hackers always wanted for HTML generation.

A typical use case of WML today is the generation of HTML-based static pages for archivable documentation. Recently we implemented an electronic "systems operations handbook" for a German fellow who enjoys semi-automatic information updates through embedded Perl.

Release: 2.0.11 (19-Aug-2006)
