USAGE

samidare is configured by "config.yml" and "t.latest.html" by default.

samidare generates "latest.html" and "sites.lirs.gz"

samidare uses "status.rm" and "tmp" to record status of pages.

"config.yml" is a configuration file in YAML format. See EXAMPLES section for its content.

"t.latest.html" is a template file. In the file, "data" variable can be used. See the document of htree library for template directives.

So you can run samidare as follows.

% cd $HOME
% mkdir samidare
% cd samidare
% vi config.yml
% vi t.latest.html # optional
% samidare
% w3m latest.html # view the result

If you want to publish the result, use symbolic link to latest.html and sites.lirs.gz as follows.

% mkdir public_html
% mkdir public_html/samidare
% cd public_html/samidare
% ln -s ../../samidare/latest.html .
% ln -s ../../samidare/sites.lirs.gz .

EXAMPLES

The configuration file is described in YAML format.

The simplest configuration is list of URLs as follows.

- http://www.example.org/blog/
- http://www.example.net/

FILES

"config.yml" and "t.latest.html" is configuration file.

"latest.html" and "sites.lirs.gz" is output.

"status.rm" and "tmp" is used by samidare internally.

SECURITY

samidare stores pages in tmp directory. If it is published via your web server, XSS (cross site scripting) is possible. So the directory should not be published.
