NAME

       ample.html - html template for Ample

DESCRIPTION

       This  file, by default /etc/ample.html, is read by Ample at startup and
       used as a base for it’s HTML pages.  These pages are rendered  whenever
       a  webbrowser  connects  and  requests  a  list  of available songs and
       directories      (typically      done      by       connecting       to
       http://server:port/index.html).

       The file is divided into three sections, the header, the middle and the
       footer. The header and the footer are the same on each  page  generated
       while the “middle” is copied into the final HTML document once for each
       file or directory that is going to be listed. Although this  may  sound
       confusing,  it  will probably become much more evident once you look at
       the example below.

       Variables are written in  uppercase  and  enclosed  within  “at”  signs
       (example:  @NAME@)  and  are  replaced  dynamically  when  the  page is
       constructed.  Some variables can exist anywhere  in  the  document  and
       some  can only exist in the “middle” section, see the information about
       each variable for details.
