Contrepoint is an application for OS X, written in Ruby, which allows you to create websites from a simple collection of folders with text files and images in them. So you can go from a set of text files and jpegs to this webpage at the click of a button.
This allows you to create and edit a website without editing HTML at all (given the templates). Or allow others to edit a website without actually touching the source HTML and CSS.
- Create a well structured website with no HTML
- Generate lists of items (for a weblog or elsewhere)
- Create links to other pages, lists and tables with no HTML
- Structure your website by dragging folders around, and links update automatically
- Generate picture galleries with thumbnails and images resized for the web
- Generate a weblog or other dynamic content locally for putting on a static webserver
- Use it with .mac or your ISP webspace - no need to install anything on the server
- One click uploads your website to the .mac service
- Not just limited to blogs or online galleries
- Enter snippets of HTML within text files for extra control
- Create items (a footer or header for example) which are used throughout the site
- Easily use different templates for each section of the site
- Create complex sites and templates which others can edit with no knowledge of the site structure
- Entirely redesign a site without touching the content
What it won't do
- Run on a web server as a server-side script
- Upload your website to an ISP account (you need an FTP program for this).
