Quick Web Page builder

I have a lot of mp3 files on 2 cds that I have organized into folders. I want to make a web page for these files so that it's easy to navigate them and then burn them onto the cds. Is there an automated web page building program that would do this in Slackware?

You could just make a local page and link the files to links on the page.

I personally use Nvu.. works great.

You could write a bash script to do this. Something like:


cd <your mp3 dir>
for file in `ls`
echo "<a href=" $file ">" $file "</a>" >> mp3list.html
Of course would need to make the script recursively transverse directories too. 'man ls' will help.

If you know Perl and you have Apache with mod_perl installed, you can use Apache::MP3 ("Generate streamable directories of MP3 and Ogg Vorbis files").

find /path/to/files -name \*.mp3 -print0 | xargs -0 -i -t echo "<a href="{}">"{}"</a>" >> mp3list.html

Or you could let Apache and/or Firefox generate a file listing.
