Okay so I just discovered that DEVONthink can export groups as a website which I am SO EXCITED ABOUT. So far I’ve been organizing material in my database, using it to write, and then publishing it via a few different blogging systems. But I’m not a big fan of that, because (a) I don’t want to maintain a blogging system, as easy as several of them may be and (b) I don’t like the extra step involved in going from DT to the web.
So…my goal now is to be able to just write up content in my database, cross-link documents however I want, and then export a web site that I can upload to an FTP server, or rsync, or whatever.
I’m pretty sure I can write scripts to generate index pages and stuff like that. The one hanging concern I have is how to embed arbitrary HTML. I might want to include a YouTube clip for example, which is done by placing some HTML tags into the document.
Basically I just need some way of telling DTP to treat certain parts of a document as my own HTML and not to do anything to it (style it, HTML escape it, etc etc).
Is that doable?
