2.5 Examples

The following is a lump of code I use to fontify source code on my site, http://rtfm.etla.org/ (which was the reason, incidentally, that Htmlfontify was written in the first place).

(defvar rtfm-section nil)

;; Constructs an appropriate header string to fit in with rtfm's
;; templating system, based on the file and the stylesheet string
(defun rtfm-build-page-header (file style)
  (format "#define  TEMPLATE red+black.html
#define  DEBUG    1
#include <build/menu-dirlist|>\n
html-css-url := /css/red+black.css
title        := rtfm.etla.org ( %s / src/%s )
bodytag      :=
head         <=STYLESHEET;\n
main-title   := rtfm / %s / src/%s\n
main-content <=MAIN_CONTENT;\n" rtfm-section file style rtfm-section file))

;; the footer:
(defun rtfm-build-page-footer (file) "\nMAIN_CONTENT\n")

(defun rtfm-fontify-buffer (section)
  (interactive "s section[eg- emacs / p4-blame]: ")
  (require 'htmlfontify)
  (let ((hfy-page-header  'rtfm-build-page-header)
	(hfy-page-footer  'rtfm-build-page-footer)
	(rtfm-section                     section))

;; Here's the function I actually call---it asks me for a section label,
;; and source and destination directories, and then binds a couple of
;; customization variable in a let before calling htmlfontify:
(defun rtfm-build-source-docs (section srcdir destdir)
   "s section[eg- emacs / p4-blame]:\nD source-dir: \nD output-dir: ")
  (require 'htmlfontify)
  (hfy-load-tags-cache srcdir)
  (let ((hfy-page-header  'rtfm-build-page-header)
	(hfy-page-footer  'rtfm-build-page-footer)
	(rtfm-section                     section)
	(hfy-index-file                   "index")
	(auto-mode-alist (append auto-mode-alist
				 '(("dbi\\(shell\\|gtk\\)$" . cperl-mode)
				   ("\\.xpm$"               . c-mode    ))))
    (htmlfontify-run-etags srcdir)
    (htmlfontify-copy-and-link-dir srcdir destdir ".src" ".html")))
