Spin the Web™ Project
Spin the Web deals with the Webbase Ontology Language (WBOL)—pronounced like wobble /ˈwɒbəl/. Simply put, HTML describes a single web page, WBOL, a whole web site; and, while HTML is interpreted by a client side web browser, WBOL, by a server side
It must be stressed that WBOL does not replace any technology, it coordinates technologies; it focuses on
WBOL can describe web sites, intranets, extranets, portals, web apps, web services, here collectively referred to as
Contents are the fundamental elements of WBOL, they represent interactive data units (I/O) that fall in the following four categories:
- sensorial contents
- render data as free text, forms, lists, tables, plots, maps, timelines, media...
- navigational contents
- render data as links such as TOC, breadcrumbs, slicers, image maps...
- organizational contents
- wrap contents in organized manners such as tabs, calendar, trees, graphs, menus...
- special contents
- shortcut, code...
All contents explicitly declare or request the data they deal with. The other WBOL elements address higher organization (pages, areas and site), accessibility (data sources, groups and VCL) and localization (texts). WBOL has an associated layout API and a text preprocessor. [more]
