Introducing GRML

Making another markup dialect.


General Reuse Markup Langauge, or GRML, is a markup dialect for web programs. It has the information definition highlights of character-delimited records and XML, with the hyperlinking and frame support of HTML.

The motivation behind this article is to demonstrate why GRML exists and how it supplements HTML, XML, RSS, and character-delimited organizations.


GRML isn't the consequence of a particular arrangement. It was produced as an answer to another issue, specifically reusing information from a web benefit. It started with the improvement of a web front-end to ask for content from a couple of web administrations. An information organize was expected to deal with reactions. Having information in some discretionary arrangement was excessively constraining. Something formal was required.

HTML and XML were considered, yet they didn't exactly fit the front-end being created. There should have been another decision, one with...

bolster for various perspectives (the front-end utilized a List control that has 4);

an approach to characterize various arrangements of information for multidimensional perspectives;

content that means/from different organizations; and

a refinement between the show of the shape and view.

Since there was no organization that met every one of the necessities, the front-end would require something new. Utilizing the front-end, it was conceivable to build up an arrangement and test it for these prerequisites. At the end of the day, the front-end existed before the markup dialect!

The configuration that came about was GRML. It was intended to utilize structures and perspectives, bolsters various and multidimensional perspectives, works with existing web servers, and adjusts to different organizations. Once the markup dialect was done, the web front-end turned into a web program.

Since the goal for GRML has been clarified, the following stage is to comprehend, in detail, why existing configurations were not picked.

Understanding Markup Languages.

Before experiencing the way toward understanding why GRML is vital, the current arrangements should be presented and their plan objectives recognized. The configurations are considered from an information dealing with a point of view, so no exchange of diversions, motion pictures, music, promoting, and stimulation are said.

For the motivations behind making a markup dialect, the two noteworthy highlights for perusing website pages are the shape and view. A shape contains any information control for client demands. A view shows substance or information from the website page without the markup labels or designing components.

Given the necessity of the frame and view, it is conceivable to analyze each organization.

HTML is the most common arrangement on the web. It is intended for information show. There are shape and view bolster.

XML is a minor organization on the web. It is intended for information definition. It needs shape and view bolster.

RSS is a minor arrangement on the web. It is intended for information definition. It needs shape bolster, however, has a view.

CSV or character-delimited arrangements are once in a while utilized on the web. It is intended for information definition. It needs frame bolster yet has a view.

Since each arrangement has been presented, it is conceivable to comprehend the place for GRML on the web.

We should start with...


There is truly just a single markup dialect in boundless use on the web (as it were, 99% of all site pages utilize this dialect), and that is HyperText Markup Language or HTML. HTML portrays how information is shown. It tells the web program how the website page looks in the web program see. With HTML, all substance is shown in the view, including structures, content, and pictures. HTML chooses how to show the page.

Site page content, utilizing HTML, is characterized just for pictures and hyperlinks. The content substance isn't characterized, making it incongruent to use in different configurations. Hence, adjusting HTML substance to different arrangements is the most restricted of all configurations considered.

The single view approach of HTML counteracts powerfully exchanging the substance in the view. There is no real way to introduce related arrangements of HTML content (e.g. 2 distinct pages from a message board, or 4 unique pages of new features, or 8 distinct pages of closeout comes about, and so on.) in the view without stacking diverse pages and exploring between them. Subsequently, HTML does not bolster multidimensional perspectives.

Since HTML chooses the website page show, it keeps different perspectives of substance. HTML does not bolster multidimensional perspectives and isn't anything but difficult to adjust to different organizations. Likewise, it consolidates the frame and view in one show. Consequently, it ended up being an insufficient decision.

Next is...


XML, or eXtensible Markup Language, is intended for flexibility. Databases, spreadsheets, CSV, or character-delimited records are generally possibly ready to design their information utilizing XML. It characterizes what information is, as opposed to how it is shown. This makes XML versatile to other document designs.

There is nobody XML record arrange. It is a standard for characterizing how to structure information. This absence of a particular information arrange keeps XML from characterizing any perspective of its substance. It likewise does not characterize input controls for use in a frame.

An absence of view bolster in XML keeps numerous AND multidimensional perspectives. Without shape bolster, a client can't send demands. While XML is versatile to different arrangements, it isn't a sufficient decision.

Up until this point, HTML and XML have demonstrated inadequate. The alongside considering is...


RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, is a particular information organization of an XML information structure. Consequently, RSS can bolster a perspective of its information. Additionally, since it depends on XML, it characterizes its information as opposed to how it is shown. View bolster with information definition implies that RSS underpins various perspectives of its substance.

As an XML design, RSS does not have any frame bolster. Information controls don't exist utilizing XML, henceforth are absent from RSS. Therefore, it isn't adequate.

Just a single organization remains, and it is...

CSV or character-delimited.

CSV (comma isolated esteems) or character-delimited organizations are utilized by databases, spreadsheets, and numerous other information situated applications to store data to document. It is a configuration that is versatile to different organizations since it doesn't utilize any show labels. The configuration comprises totally of substance, with the exception of the character utilized for the delimiter.

This arrangement has a view since it is completely substance and needs markup labels. Its emphasis on content implies that it is the most reusable of any arrangement considered. No show labels are utilized, so it underpins various perspectives.

The absence of information definition labels implies there is no real way to recognize sets of information. Consequently, CSV or character-delimited records don't bolster multidimensional perspectives. What's more, it isn't conceivable to characterize input controls for a shape. This implies no frame bolster.

In this way, this arrangement is an inadequate decision. This is the reason it was important to make...


GRML characterizes the frame and views independently. Information controls for a frame are characterized independently from content utilized as a part of the view. Additionally, content is characterized expressly in GRML, with content characterized independently from hyperlinks and pictures. Show labels don't exist in GRML. The web program chooses how to show the website page. This implies bolster for various perspectives.

Utilizing information definition labels enables GRML to be versatile to different organizations (HTML, XML, RSS, CSV or character-delimited). It additionally empowers diverse arrangements of substance to be named, which implies bolster for multidimensional perspectives.


Subsequent to considering all the accessible organizations for a markup dialect, each needed no less than one of the recorded necessities. None met the outline objectives of the web front-end. In this manner, it was important to make another organization, GRML.
