TemplateFx v2.35

 April 17th, 2014Apr 17th, 2014      

I am pleased to announce the release of Template v2.35 – a dynamic templating tool that enables you to write configuration templates once and deploy multiple times – never do the same thing twice.

Download links and instructions can be found on the TemplateFx page.


The changes in this release are summarised below:

  • Added support for template comments (using #) which aren’t seen in the output.
  • Added support for including external files into a template.
  • Changed a behaviour where snippet syntax wasn’t being highlighted unless the snippet existed.
  • Fixed a bug where the “timestamp()” js function wasn’t working – bug introduced in 2.34.
  • Fixed a bug where tabs weren’t being stripped from snippets.
  • Fixed a race condition where the previous pane wasn’t being focused when switching between tabs.
  • Cleaned up the Base64 encoding and decoding functions.
  • Changed the default un-maximised size from 800×600 pixels to 960×640 pixels.
  • Updated the JavaScript “passwd()” function to permit an optional character set.
  • Updated the JavaScript “counter()” function to permit using different increments and a different starting point.
  • Fixed a bug in the JavaScript “insubnet()” function as JavaScript doesn’t handle bitwise operations on 32-bit numbers very well.
  • Added some additional IP helper functions to output subnet information – network(), broadcast(), ipfirst() and iplast().
  • Updated the “timestamp()” function to not rely on a custom Java “jsTimestamp()” function.
  • Fixed a bug where I broke “Undo” and “Redo” when selecting them off the popup menu.
  • An updated version of the User Guide has been included with the distribution.

Feedback welcome as well as suggestions or enhancement requests or general queries!
