Client SSI Generator

Client-side SSI processing tool.


This software project has been discontinued. Its last released version is also most likely to remain the last available version, unless someone else is interested in its further development.

It also means any filed issues probably won't be ever picked up.

Client SSI Generator is a complementary tool for web designers. It mimics the SSI server (Server Side Includes) behaviour, but on the client side. It may be used for preprocessing HTML pages in the case there’s no SSI service available on the HTTP server, nor is there any more advanced service like CGI, ASP or PHP.

SSI mechanism is quite useful for creating consistent website design. You define templates, which are automatically inserted into pages by the server at specified positions. And if such a service is not available (no SSI support or no server involved in HTML content delivery—for example, in HTML Help (.chm) files), the program can to a certain extent solve this by creating SSI content at the designer’s workplace. It is anyway much easier than manually rewrite hundreds of pages when you just need to alter the main menu of the website.



The program needs ca. 2 MB free space on the hard drive and 8 MB of installed physical memory (more memory recommended for proper file caching).

Operating system: Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP.
