What's New

Database hosting was enhanced to support accomodation of Markdown pages.
Markdown hosting service is now OPEN!

Let Me Try

The newly started service allows you to build a website that includes arbitrary Markdown pages as well as generate dynamic pages with database data. You can use extended features like multi-lingal authoring as described in Authoring.


The rest of this page describes how the database hosting is implemented. It is technical; you don't have to read it if you are just going to use the database hosting.

Live Data Embedder

The core part of the database hosting service is a set of perl scripts developed by Kobu.Com. It is called Live Data Embedder (or just Embedder). A source page is written in Markdown with simple marking syntax. When a web request comes, current data from a database table is dynamically embedded to the output web page.
