mkht.php is a PHP script for building HTML/CSS sites from source documents in PHP, Gemtext, Pandoc Markdown, Gettext translation files, HTML and CSS.
For my personal use cases, this project include some specific tweaks that may not be fully or correctly documented.
Place your pages tree in
mkht.php [-f] [site_path] [destination]
-f forces generation of every file, erasing already generated files.
site_path is not set, it will default to current directory.
destination is optional and can be:
onionif you want links ending with .onion when available (function
Source pages must end in
.md and can use Gemtext, Markdown, HTML and PHP.
The following optional files have special meaning:
- some default settings can be changed by this file
- additional CSS
- added just before
- added just after
- added just before
- po4a configuration file
Files starting with a dot (except for
.well-known) are ignored.
draft in their name (separated from other characters by
.) are ignored.
Security note: any PHP code in input files is executed with the same permissions as
Note that format translation is only done in the following order: Gemini > Markdown > HTML, which means that the last of these formats you will use will be the first that will be readable by hypertext browsers. (PHP is always executed first.)
IDs are attributed to titles according to their content, therefore modifying a title breaks links to page sections.
For atom feeds
- Make sure modification timestamps of source files are preserved. For example,
cp --preserve=timestampsmust be used instead of just
cpwhen backing up or migrating.
- Renaming/moving a page creates a new page and delete the older.
- pandoc for Markdown → HTML
- po4a for Gettext translation
