|In this talk I present a programmatic approach to authoring of WWW material.
The approach is based on my work on LAML in Scheme.
With LAML it is possible to generate HTML pages from a Scheme document source.
The basic idea is to mirror HTML to a number of Scheme functions. Based on
this mirror, a number of document styles, tools, and additional libraries have
been built. The creation of abstractions in terms of functions is a key to mastering
complexity - in program development as well as WEB development. But also the possibility
to perform immediate automation of routine tasks at the most natural places in the document
is an important characteristics of programmatic authoring.
In the talk we will discuss discuss programmatic authoring as a contrast
to other WWW authoring possibilities, and we will illustrate the practical potential
of the approach by a variety of different examples. We will also briefly touch of
server side CGI programming using LAML.|
