exposure.

ZenWeb 2.11.0 has been released!

I don’t think I’ve remembered to announce any releases in a while, so
this one is a tad different. Among the newest changes are:

  • relative url renderer
  • massively improved demo/docs
  • separated renderers into individual files
  • improved installation
  • extended zenwebpage to specially render SiteMap and metadata.txt.
  • improved testing and requirements validation
  • now properly renders ~user type sites.
  • some improvements for the spam paranoid.
  • ruby code eval mechanism in the metadatarenderer. (eg #{1 + 1} in your
    text)

The docs still need some expansion, but I think they are much much
better. I’d love some feedback on this. The mailing list is a tad quiet,
so anything would help!

:slight_smile:

From the README.txt:

ZenWeb
http://www.zenspider.com/ZSS/Products/ZenWeb/
support@zenspider.com

DESCRIPTION:

ZenWeb is a set of classes/tools for organizing and formating a
website. It is website oriented rather than webpage oriented, unlike
most rendering tools. It is content oriented, rather than style
oriented, unlike most rendering tools. It provides a plugin system of
renderers and filters to provide a very flexible, and powerful system.

(Minimal) documentation is available in the demo directory. See
QuickStart and YourOwnWebsite for setup and starting to build a
website.

FEATURES:

  • SiteMap oriented for a comprehensive website.
  • Generic architecture w/ a set of plugins to extend any page or
    directory.
  • Incremental page builds for very fast generation.
  • Simple text-to-html markup makes creating large websites easy.
  • Much much more… I should probably add that here, huh?

Picky, picky! :wink:

I’m not the best person to give an overview of ZenWeb, but here goes.

ZenWeb is a tool for building websites (not web pages). It applies a
defined set of filters to files of content (often flat text or lightly
marked up text (think wiki)) and creates hierarchically navigable pages,
with a consistent theme and design.

Examples are at: www.zenspider.com and (I believe) www.coolnamehere.com
, thought the latter is not responding right now.
