www.sitemesh.homeip.net is a proposal to replace the current SiteMesh website with emphasis on,

  • Tutorial Based Learning (Trail, Live Demos)
  • Updating the documentation
  • Modernizing the site for community feedback

At this stage I am putting together some sample content. Once there is enough content, the SiteMesh team will be contacted to determine if they want to endorse this wiki.

Summary

SiteMesh is a web-page layout system that can be used to abstract common look
and feel from the functionality of a web-application and to assemble large
webpages from smaller components. Pages and components can have meta-data
extracted from them (such as body, title and meta-tags) which can be used by
decorators (skins) that are applied.

SiteMesh won't tread on your toes or force you to work in a certain way (except
for cleaner) - you install and carry on working as before. It seamlessly fits in
with existing frameworks.

Forget the hype - just try it! You'll be impressed with how it can simplify
things.
