Forum OpenACS Q&A: Literate Programming and OpenACS?

I am working on some new stuff for a client.  No legacy code.

I have found in the past that it can be a pain to synchronize the
various pieces of code and HTML needed for even a few dynamic pages.
Perhaps I am the only one :-)

Has anyone tried using "literate programming" styles or tools to keep
all the documentation, source, HTML and SQL in one file for easy

I am considering using FunnelWeb (
which is language-independent and seems to be one of the simpler tools.

I used noweb years ago, but it was with C. Basically is like writing Latex with emebdding code. from Google. Aparently the Lyx word processor can handle noweb.

Something along these lines would help a lot in OpenACS 4, considering
we've got .adp, .tcl, and .xql files all interwined into a single entitity.
