olddoc contains old-fashioned document generators for those who do not wish to impose bloated, new-fangled web cruft on their readers.
No CSS. Encouraging users to use CSS leads to problems like copy-paste hijacking: thejh.net/misc/website-terminal-copy-paste External CSS also increases page load time as it often blocks page rendering. Asynchronous loading of CSS also causes accessibility problems as links/buttons may move as a user attempts to click.
No frames. Frames are an accessibility hassle and unfriendly to users of tiny screens on mobile devices and text-based browsers.
No images. Not everyone can view or afford bandwidth to load images. This also reduces the potential for security vulnerabilities as less code gets run. Furthermore, loading the wrong image in a public place can get you arrested (or worse).
gem install olddoc cd $ANY_RDOC_USING_RUBY_PROJECT rdoc -f oldweb
You can also use olddoc to generate NEWS entries assuming you have git tags, a README file and .olddoc.yml
And "olddoc merge" to merge instances of "olddoc_placeholder" in an HTML file with HTML fragments generated with other tools such as pandoc(1). This requries an appropriately configured .olddoc.yml with a "merge_html" section see olddoc(5)
