Version: 0.3.2 - Updated: 2000-10-29 - by Stein Vråle
HTMLplus is an experimental module for linuxconf, which purpose is to use various html features and tricks trying to enchance the html mode of linuxconf, without breaking the normal operation of linuxconf or modify the core Linuxconf code itself.

The HTMLplus features may be tested "live" using a demoserver, where it runs in a chroot enviroment. Some parts are not operational in demo mode, but you should get the "feeling" of how the treemenu works. The initial treemenu page may take some time to download, if it ends with an error, please try to reload it again a few times.
The demoserver is now upgraded to htmlplus-0.3.2 and use the "Terminator" theme (the sample included in the package).

Treemenu SSL Demo (Ignore errors with selfsigned SSL certificate).
The generator code was originally made as a patch to the treemenu module, but I decided to move the relevant code into its own module, to be more independant from the linuxconf core source. This makes it easy to try out new features without any patching of linuxconf itself, also the menu is still not generated 100% correctly, so the menu should not be considered finished yet.
This also opens the possibility to try out other advanced html stuff in linuxconf, without touching the linuxconf source itself. I have some ideas for other things to do with this module, and are interested to cooperate with other linuxconf html users to improve this module further. If something really useful comes out of it, maybe some of the module code could be implemented directly in linuxconf itself. So consider this an optional html enchancer for linuxconf, suitable for developing new experimental html features.
Some dialogs is not working from the treemenu The treemenu is not generated 100% correctly. Some of the URL's to linuxconf html dialogs will fail, resulting in a failure message from linuxconf: "You are trying to enter a dialog from a previous session of linuxconf". This message is irrelevant, but indicates that the URL from the treemenu is not understood by linuxconf. I'm not sure how the generator could parse the treemenu structure to avoid this failures, currently some hardcoded hacks has been implemented to fix the problem for some of the important dialogs. This is not a good solution to the problem, but currently the only one available.
