ssqdb is a tiny static quote DB, inspired by QDB and its siblings.
$ ssqdb /path/to/your/quotes.txt
"quotes.txt" should be formatted as follows:
% <person1> witty comment <person2> witty response % <person3> less witty comment % (etc)
this site was generated by ssqdb version 17.
the latest version can be found here.
ssqdb can use
to generate an image for each quote,
and embed those images as Open Graph metadata. this is chiefly useful for
quote DBs where each quote has a single author.
quote cards can be enabled by passing
--cards; the author for
each quote is blank by default, but can be taken from either
$AUTHOR in the environment, or from "IRC-formatted" quotes via
<author> foo when
--author-irc is passed,
or from quotes that end with
- author when
--author-tail is passed.
in addition to the HTML pages, ssqdb provides a static pseudo-API:
/count— the total number of quotes being served
/quoteNUM.json— the quote at the
NUMth index, starting at zero
--jsonwas used during generation. expect 404s otherwise.
