scripts default iconContemplate for Scripts Publisher's description

Contemplate is a set of server-side scripts that makes it easy for web developers to separate content from code when building sites.

Contemplate is a set of server-side scripts that makes it easy for web developers to separate content from code when building sites.

Contemplate assembles text content, page layouts, and server-side or client-side scripts into dynamically generated or precompiled web pages based on arguments you pass into each page.

From simple, content-oriented websites to complex, data-driven web applications, Contemplate separates different production tasks and allows writers, front-end developers, and web programmers to focus on what they do best.

The overall design of Contemplate was based on the idea of a "dynamic" server-side include. Normally, an include consists of a hard-coded reference to a file.

Contemplate expands on this in two ways. First, the reference is not hard-coded, but is passed into the page through the URL string. Second, the reference can be not only to a file but also to a portion of a file, a randomly selected portion of a file, or the value of an HTML form.

These two differences reverse the paradigm of server-side includes: instead of a site with many pages, each sharing the same piece of content, you can build sites with just a few templates, each displaying different pieces of content.

Each URL in a Contemplate site is actually a request for Contemplate's Assembler script, with an argument telling the script which template to use.

Contemplate reads the template and looks for the special include tags, which we call "embed tags." Each URL also contains arguments telling the script which piece of content to display in the place of each embed tag.

Contemplate reads the content files that contain these pieces of content, extracts the desired pieces from them, and merges the content into the template. The visitor then sees a complete web page.
