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.
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.
The following tools are used to build database hosting.
The source code of the first stable version of Embedder is published on github. See README for detail (how to run, embedder syntax and its architecture).
