MySSI's Grandparent Parent Relationship
Files are now created in the Client (grandparent) directory
as standard HTML files.
<!-- #extract file="filename" --> The
static portions of the files that will be used on multiple pages are
enclosed in "extract" directives which MySSI uses to
build the included files in the Server (parent) Directory.
<!-- #extract end --> Since these directives are standard HTML comments,
the files in the Client directory can be edited and maintained with any
standard html editor.
The major advantage to this approach is that the grandparent parent
relationship is bidirectional. MySSI can also rebuild the
As you will see in the demo that follows, adding another page requires
that you change the navigation in only one of the Client files. You then
"mark" the extract directive for processing and run the MySSI update
MySSI will notice the change to the navigation and extract that change to
the server directory. It will then notice that all of the other files
require a new build because one of their included files is newer.
Creating new files is also performed by the MySSI build command using the
build contacts from index
But what if you make a mistake!
