tentmaker - browser based bigtop file editor
tentmaker [ --port=8192 ] [ file ]
Or, to name a new app with optional table layout:
tentmaker --new AppName style_info
Or, to augment an existing bigtop file:
tentmaker --add file.bigtop style_info
See STYLES below for what style_info can be.
This script is a simple web server. Tell it what file you want to
edit (or start from scratch) and an optional port (defaults to 8080).
Point your browser to that port and edit away.
--port (or -p)
Specifies a port for the server. Defaults to 8080.
--new (or -n)
Allows you to specify the name of the app and optionally its table
relationships. Requires a name for the app. The rest of the command
line arguments are depend on what style you use, see STYLES.
Normally this flag uses the default bigtop file from Bigtop::ScriptHelp.
For your convenience, you can see it in examples/default.bigtop. To
override it, copy that file to bigtopdef in the directory where you
invoke tentmaker -n, or to .bigtopdef in your home directory.
Edit the file to your hearts content.
The result must be a valid bigtop file, with one exception. The file
you create will be used as a template toolkit template. But, only three
things are available for subsitution:
The name of the app from the command line.
The app name, where all ::s are replaced with underscores.
Everything after the last :: in the app_name in lower case.
For example see examples/def.bigtop.tt.
--add (or -a)
Allows you to augment an existing bigtop file prior to editing it.
Requires a bigtop file name. The rest of the command line arguments
as the same as for -n, see STYLES.
--style (or -s)
Defaults to Original. Specifies which Bigtop::ScriptHelp::Style:: module
will handle extra command line arguements and standard input. See your
Style modules docs for details.
Any command line arguments not consumed by the options above are passed
to your style backend. If you dont use -s, the Original style
is used. If you do use -s, whatever style you choose is used.
All styles live in the Bigtop::ScriptHelp::Style:: namespace.
See their individual docs for what they know how to do.
This section used to be called ASCII ART, the code which supported
that got factored out and became the default style
Bigtop::ScriptHelp::Style::Original. See it for details on
