Wrapper

new arguments:

  1. wrapper_type="default | error | example | important | note | question | quote | success | warning"
  2. wrapper_title="Title"
  3. col=1 | 0

box shade page text
type + + ‚Äď -
title + + ‚Äď -
alignment + ‚Äď1 ‚Äď2 +
clear + + ‚Äď ‚Äď
width + ‚Äď1 + ‚Äď3
column ‚Äď + ‚Äď +
frame + + ‚Äď ‚Äď
automatic line feed + + + ‚Äď

1 This option does not make sense, because the width of the block is always equal to the width of the page.
2 Only to the left.
3 If you don't put the line feeds yourself, the block width is fixed by the engine at approximately 90% of the page width.


%%(wacko wrapper="shade" wrapper_type="note" wrapper_title="Columns" col=4) content... %%

Columns

Unicode has the explicit aim of transcending the limitations of traditional character encodings, such as those defined by the ISO 8859 standard, which find wide usage in various countries of the world but remain largely incompatible with each other. Many traditional character encodings share a common problem in that they allow bilingual computer processing (usually using Latin characters and the local script), but not multilingual computer processing (computer processing of arbitrary scripts mixed with each other).

Unicode, in intent, encodes the underlying characters‚ÄĒgraphemes and grapheme-like units‚ÄĒrather than the variant glyphs (renderings) for such characters. In the case of Chinese characters, this sometimes leads to controversies over distinguishing the underlying character from its variant glyphs (see Han unification).


In text processing, Unicode takes the role of providing a unique code point‚ÄĒa number, not a glyph‚ÄĒfor each character. In other words, Unicode represents a character in an abstract way and leaves the visual rendering (size, shape, font, or style) to other software, such as a web browser or word processor. This simple aim becomes complicated, however, because of concessions made by Unicode's designers in the hope of encouraging a more rapid adoption of Unicode.


A tiny part of the Unicode table


The first 256 code points were made identical to the content of ISO-8859-1 so as to make it trivial to convert existing western text. Many essentially identical characters were encoded multiple times at different code points to preserve distinctions used by legacy encodings and therefore, allow conversion from those encodings to Unicode (and back) without losing any information. For example, the "fullwidth forms" section of code points encompasses a full Latin alphabet that is separate from the main Latin alphabet section because in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) fonts, these Latin characters are rendered at the same width as CJK characters, rather than at half the width. For other examples, see duplicate characters in Unicode.

Template Engine

The new template engine[link55] provides support for templates, to separate visual code (HTML/CSS) from logic code (PHP).


example.php

 $tpl->variable = 'Templatest is awesome.';

template/example.tpl

 <p>[ ' variable | e ' ]</p>

classes

  1. templatest.php[link57]
  2. templatestescaper.php[link58]
  3. templatestfilters.php[link59]
  4. templatestsetter.php[link60]
  5. templatestuser.php[link61]

Template support is available for actions, handlers and themes.


URI router

Decouples the serve logic from Apache to be server-agnostic.

router.conf[link51]

// whole idea is to take URI path, _GET/_PUT/_SERVER data and other
// meta-data, then process rules in this file sequentially, which
// results in dispatched handler to process query,
// and all arguments extracted from URI for further usage by those handlers
// (e.g. you can extract parts of URI to _GET vars, etc.)


// 'language' guide:
// every line of code consists of regex which matched against URI, and
// actions, all separated by whitespace. there are no possibility to
// include whitespace in regex or action.
// regex will be matched against URI, on success all actions executed, on failure - we go for next regex.
// lines without regex is continuations for same regex, and will be executed sequentially if regex matched.

// every single action can succeed or fail. if any one fails - all
// variable assignments made by THIS line (even before failed action) is
// discarded, and we go to next line.

// two control action exist (all action line must succeed for them to act!)
//	_next!		-- jump to next regex (skip next action lines with empty regex)
//	_ok!		-- search terminated with success
// if no _ok! executed ever - search fails and 404 emitted

// that's all on control flow.

// main regex:
// http://php.net/manual/en/reference.pcre.pattern.syntax.php -- usual php preg_* regex syntax apply, including
// delimiters and options after trailing delimiter.
// convenience macros (defined by 'define' line, or supplied by wackowiki) expanded before matching.
// used as {macro} - to be referenced as $1-vars then, or {var=macro} - for inline assignment.
// macros cannot be used in ~-regexes

// VARIABLES:
//	$0..$9	- fields matched by main regex. $0 is complete match, $1 and later - corresponding (...) parts
//	$a..$j	- as $0..$9 but set by sub-matched (by ~ operator) patterns 
//	Gname	- _GET[name]
//	Pname	- _PUT[name]
//	Sname	- _SERVER[name]
//	others	- local variables
// predefined vars:
//	_tls		- 1 or 0, tls session
//	_uri		- parsed URI (it is matched against main regex, but can be changed by assignment)
//	_method		- _SERVER[REQUEST_METHOD]
//	_rewrite	- 1 or 0, mod_rewrite active
// usage of undefined variables considered a failure (if not masked by @ in VALUE expansion, see later)

// ACTIONS:
// similar format used for all actions (not all fields apply for every action, and just ignored):
//		VARIABLE[:FUNCTION]operatorVALUE

// value is a string, with expanded variables. expansions:
//	$0 .. $9 / $a .. $j -- see above
//	${name}
//	@$... format can be used to mask undefined variable error
//	$$ - replaced by $
//	$@ - replaced by @

// assignments:
// 	FUNCTIONs can be used: tolower | toupper | int
//	var=$1
//	var:tolower=$1
//	var?=$2				-- assign if not set
//	var!				== var=1
//	dbg=$1,$2,$3		-- Ut::dbg printer ;)

// pattern matching:
//	var~/regex/i			-- sets $a..$j on success
//	var!~/regex/i
//	var~hashid:[1-9]		-- hashid expansion, into $a...
//	var!~hashid:[1-9]

// comparisons:
//	FUNCTIONS can be used: int -- both args converted to int before comparison
//	var==12    var!=12    var:int<12    var>12    var<=12    var>=12

// others:
// var?					-- isset
// var-					-- unset

Wakka


Please note: The changes below are made in the dev version of Wakka[link100] and won't be available to the public until we prepare a new version (read: no public CVS, sorry), which of course will be posted here, too. So, for example, everything posted above "Released Wakka 0.1.1." won't be available until there's a bold line of text saying "Released Wakka 0.1.2." or something. Hendrik Mans[link101]


2003-02-16:



There will probably be a 0.1.3 first, though, containing more fixes (if anyone finds further problems, that is), and some minor new features (including image tags).

I'm actually thinking about making the installer/updater create this file automatically, so upgrading to a new version is safer. Let me know what you think.
