Welcome to the home of Macro4Web
Please note: as you can read by
the announcement above, this site is still under construction. I am
also aware that the aesthetic appearance could be better, but writing
content and designing the aspect of the site takes time and
currently I have other priorities. Stay tuned...
What is Macro4Web?
Macro4Web is a Ruby script that I wrote to create my own web sites.
(Yes, this one too!) The basic idea behind this script are
- Macro expansion
- Rails' philosopy "Convention over configuration"
In my opinion, Macro4Web is quite a nice and powerful piece of
software. It is simple to use and it allows you to maintain a
coeherent structure of your site with minimal effort and no
Should I use it?
It depends... Answer the following questions
Are you searching for a GUI-based program?
Do you want to create a complex site with DB access, customer
handling and all that stuff?
Are you afraid of editing HTML/CSS files "by hand" or do
you just hate command lines?
Don't you mind to apply the same changes to all the pages of your
site the day you decide to change the navigation menu?
If the answer to the questions above are "yes," forget Macro4Web.
If, on the other hand, you want to create a simple non excessively
interactive site and you are confortable with editing HTML files, I
think that you could find this software useful.
How do I install/use it?
