The Hazel Walkthrough

The Hazel Walkthrough

The Hazel walkthrough holds your hand step-by-step through the magical mystery tour of downloading, installing, configuring, and finishing your Hazel catalog.

Take me to the walkthrough!


The Config File

The Config File

The config tells Hazel who she is, where she is, and what she's allowed to do with your stuff. This file explains its contents.

Take me to the config docs!


The Products File

The Products File

The products file contains information on everything you're selling. Hazel reads this to determine what to charge for the various items, as well as to display their vital statistics when asked to do so by a shopper.

Hazel Actions

Actions

Hazel is ready, willing and able to perform marvelous feats of webwork for your shoppers. She responds to these commands, these "actions".

HZML Tokens

Tokens

When Hazel reads your HTML, she recognizes special "tokens" and replaces them with catalog and shopper information. In addition to their design function, tokens allow you to centralize all your configuration changes in your config file. Move your catalog? No problem. Enter the new location in your config file and Hazel's tokens will be replaced with the new data.

HZML Tags

Tags

Hazel, weary of the limitations of standard HTML, concocted a new batch of special tags to allow her more freedom while rendering your catalog pages. Her "tags" allow such operations as listing items selected by the shopper, reading in random messages of the day, and displaying pages differently for each shopper. These tags, along with her tokens, form the basis of "HZML" -- HaZel's Markup Language.

Templates

Templates

Templates allow you full customization of Hazel's output. From the checkout forms to the mail sent to you and your customers, these files put you in control of how your catalog looks and feels.

Hazel Rules

Rules

When it comes time to pay the piper, Hazel consults your rules files to determine charges for sales tax and shipping, and to apply special store-wide discounts.

Show me the rules, mistress Hazel!


Hazel's Search Engine

Hazel's Search Engine

Assuming you grease the palms of her masters, Hazel will happily search her products file for any information you desire. Here is where you'll learn how to harness the power of her preternatural logic to quickly serve to your customers the products they want to buy.

Vroom-Vroom! Go mighty engine, Go!
