Automation with LAML

We now turn to the other main point of the LAML approach. This is the possibility to automate routine tasks in the authoring process via programmed solutions.

Having a programming language available 'anytime and anywhere' makes it possible to automate a variety of tasks, which otherwise should be carried out manually

  • Examples of LAML 'automations':

    • Insertion of quotations from external files

    • Checking the validity of links to some external nodes

In many practical situations 'abstraction' and 'automation' go hand in hand

Non-trivial 'automations' can be considered as LAML-based tools
