[REBOL] Re: Rebol Server Pages

From: sharriff:aina:med-iq at: 3-Nov-2000 11:17

I want to code a XML parser/validator when I´m chanced (project "Markup") . I thought it would be a good idea to create an Object with functions directly from the given HTML/XML/XHTML : give a file caleed test.html <html> <head> <title> test </test> </head> <body> <span id="dynamic-content-name"> hello world! </span> </body> </html> testobject: markup/read %test.html this produces an Object! with Words! that contains the markup and "change" methods for the dynamic content: testobject: make object! [ print start-html print start-head print start-title print end-head print start-body dynamic-content-name: function [ my-new-content-for-id ] [ change id my-new-content-for-id ] print end-body print end-html ] then I could say: testobject/dynamic-content-name " hello earthling! " markup should have the refinements: markup/print "to print the object created from the marked-up file" markup/read " to read and create functions for the marked up file" markup/validate " to validate markup against a given DTD" This is by no means valid or tested code, I have just a hazy idea how it should be implemented, but its´too complicated for a 4 week old REBOler that I am. I think this approch separates the code from the content a step further from server pages.

Kopie:> Thema: [REBOL] Rebol Server Pages Gesendet von: rebol-bounce@ 03.11.00 23:35 Bitte antworten an rebol-list Rebol Server Pages could be implemented like this: *.RSP is the file name extension. RSP: Rebol Server Pages. The embedded Rebol script in the .RSP would look like this: <html> <head><title><%: Title: "Rebol Server Pages test" %></title> <body> <h1><%: Title %></h1> The date and time at the server is: <%: now %>. <br> There should be four "Hello"'s following this: <% for i 4 1 -1 [ %><h<%: i %>>Hello</h<%: i %>><% ] %> </body> </html> <% opens a tag that contain Rebol script that doesn't need it's value embedded in the resulting HTML code. <%: opens a tag that contains Rebol script that should be converted to a string and embedded in the resulting HTML code. %> closes either of the above tags. The implementation of the above could occur in a object, like this: RSP: make object! [ prin "<html>^/<head><title>" prin Title: "Rebol Server Pages test" prin "</title>^/<body>^/<h1>" prin Title prin "</h1>^/The date and time at the server is: " prin now prin ">. <br>^/There should be four "Hello"'s following this:" for i 4 1 -1 [ prin "<h" prin i prin ">Hello</h" prin i ] prin "</body>^/</html>" ] Hmmmm, and after painstakingly writing out all those 'prin, it might be easier to rewrite it into a block suitable for 'rejoin. Also the above object/block would predefine 'set, 'prin, 'print and maybe 'system to mean other things. Opinions? Andrew Martin Rebol Server Pages Guru... ICQ: 26227169
