Extensible modular markup/Practical guide
What EMM means for me now in practice? You can create a file in a mix of XHTML1.0 or XHTML1.1 syntax and some EMM markup to auto-generate a XHTML1.0 or XHTML1.1 file from your "template".
It is useful to produce sophisticated HTML files with such functionality as including other files, auto-generating table of content, syntax highlighting, etc. In the future even Turing-complete programming inside the template XML files will be supported!
Currently only the following modules are supported in the XML template:
- Structured Sections
- Table of Content
- Syntax Highlighting
XML Boiler[edit | edit source]
The support is available using XML Boiler software. This software is written in Python, in the future a rewrite in D Language is planned.
Installation[edit | edit source]
Download it from https://pypi.org/project/xml-boiler/#files and install the Wheel file:
- Install Python.
pip install NAME-OF-THE-FILE.whl(or
pip3 install NAME-OF-THE-FILE.whlon some platforms such as Debian or Ubuntu Linux). If you run the installation on Unix, you need to run it as root to install the script
Usage[edit | edit source]
This is black magic. Just type this command:
boiler -i YOUR-EMM-FILE.xml -o OUTPUT-XHTML1-FILE.xhtml --preload http://portonvictor.org/ns/base --preload 'http://portonvictor.org/ns/EMM' \ pipe 'c -t http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml -n ignore + t http://portonvictor.org/ns/base#NSClean'
It will do everything automatically!
