mksite.sh is a static Web site / project HTML documentation formatter that only requires the Bourne shell and sed.
mksite.sh is a static Web site / project HTML documentation formatter that only requires the Bourne shell and sed.

mksite.sh gives a common look and full navigation to an HTML Web site along with all the needed metadata detection, site map generation, and variable expansion.

It has a tabbed layout suitable for hundreds of Web pages, and is small enough to be added to any project tarball.

Pro
It requires only sh/sed posix shell tools to build doc pages.
It can build a common navigation bar and a sitemap for all webpages.
The program is a single short script file freely copyable & modifiable.

Con
All embedded meta-information must fit on a single line each.
There is only little more functionality than variable substititions.
The doc processing is slow - and even slower without gnu sed.

Neutral
A sitefile must be written - the sitemap is not truly autodetected.
The speedier twin perl script provides the exact same functionality.
Best for small webpages but gets too slow for hundreds of webpages.
The fancy results stem from the sitefile logic - see our examples .

Plus
Automatic "printerstyle" page generation helping text-mode browsers.
That style helps also for web accessibility of challenged people.
Ships with fancy tabbed style navigation as shown on these webpages.
Shortpage special style to print source code on full screen width.
It can adapt hrefs to navigate web content pages in subdirectories.

What's New in This Release:

A workaround was made for bugs in GNU sed.
Pagelist detection was enhanced.
The unit tests were corrected.
