Alert readers of YDN may have noticed a recent (tiny, cryptic) addition, "r3," way down at the bottom of our navigation bar. The European branch of Yahoo! has been using r3 and its ancestors for almost a decade to build and localise Web sites--including Yahoo! Answers--for over twenty different languages and countries.
Essentially an offline processing tool, r3 stitches together template fragments containing a special markup syntax
We're thrilled to announce that r3 has been released under a FreeBSD open source license. Check out the documentation for more details, and stay tuned for a series of introductory tutorials here on the YDN blog over the next few weeks.
