View Full Version : Script / program for publishing a web site...

January 16th, 2011, 07:33 PM
Hello All

I'm currently using a few bash scripts to publish and automatically index a web site that is not updated often. See


for the gory details (and they are gory :twisted:)

I'd like to publish the site using a single text file to hold all the pages, with an outliner or folding editor type arrangement. Sort of like Eastgate Systems' Tinderbox or Winer's OPML editor. Image files in a specific location with callouts in the text.

Any suggestions? Has anyone used org-mode in emacs for this? Most org-mode stuff I'm googling has multiple file trees.

Any other candidates?

Currently, I produce html files in a specific folder on this PC and then synch them with remote server space using lftp.

I'd like to be able to go from a single text file -> export to static pages, only updated if the specific page text changed -> lftp upload to remote server
