Script to move files to project output directory

Apr 3, 2012 9:09 AM

Robohelp 9

Custom Webhelp project

 

I would like to create a post production script to place some modified file sin the Help project output directory.

 

What would this look like and how can the output be specified according to the specified output folder in the project

 

TIA

 

Rob

    Hi there

     

    Isnt' this where configuring Publishing would come in?

     

    Or are you saying you also want to ensure you include content among the generated files? In that case, I would explore adding said files to Baggage.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    Hi,

     

     

     

    There are several possibilities, depending on what you want to do. You can create a script that lets you select the SSL, generate it, copies in files, modifies files and publishes it all to a webserver. If you like, I can send you an example script, but beware that such scripts can get quite large, depending on what you want to do.

     

     

     

    Greet,

    Adding modified output files as baggage: no. RH will overwrite them.

     

    For the script, please mail me at contact [at] wvanweelden [dot] eu and I'll send you an example.

     

    Greet,

    Hi there

     

    Glad the Skinny helped you out!

     

    The only "down side" if you will, is that by changing the seed files, every project you create after will have the same modifications. As long as you are comfortable with that, you should be good to go. But you might find yourself frustrated if you decided to create something totally different that didn't require the modifications.

     

    Cheers... Rick
