Decoupage is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects ...

Project description

what is it?

decoupage is a static file server that allows for index pages configurable with genshi templates and .ini files. I mainly wrote it because i was tired of using apache for serving my website and generating index.html files by hand.

how do i use it?

Set up a paste .ini file that specifies the directory to serve (decoupage.directory) and, optionally, a configuration file .ini file (decoupage.configuraton) which specifies the labels for the files based on directory. An example of a paste .ini file is in decoupage.ini. Note the [app:decoupage] section:

[app:decoupage]
paste.app_factory = decoupage.factory:factory
decoupage.directory = %(here)s/example
decoupage.configuration = %(here)s/example.ini

The labels for files are in example.ini, specified by sections as directories:

[/]
foo.txt = a file about cats

[/cats]
lilly.txt = lilly
hobbes.txt = a file about Hobbes

You can specify the entire layout from here. Alternately, you can have an index.ini in a directory which, if present, overrides the default configuration. Such a file is in the fleem subdirectory of example:

/template = index.html
fleem.txt = some fleem for ya

Try it out! Install decoupage and run paster serve decoupage.ini and point your browser to the URL it gives you.

how do i do more with decoupage?

Since filenames can’t start with a / (just try it!), the functionality of decoupage may be extended with / commands in a section. This is done by adding a setuptools entry_point to [decoupage.formatters]. See the decoupage setup.py and decoupage.formatters for examples.
