“Structured form output” is my stand-in for an idea a bit too big to fit as a single todo.
The idea: you ask and validate various form elements, and on submit the web form it outputs the input in various formats.
I wish I could sometimes create a groovy web form that was easy to fill out, and have it do stuff for me, like load dynamic options based on earlier selections in the form, but I don’t need it to do anything with that after I’m done: I need that data as text.
Some formats I’m thinking:
- Markdown with front matter
https:links, pre-filled (pointing to talkgroup for adding a topic, for instance)
Ideas for content:
- Classified ads
- Character sheets
Because I’m building the forms to be good content generators, rather than capturing potential customers in my profit loop, it is more sound as a system. It is adjusted to make the formatted text portable, a prudent course.
