Calendar product for the Zope Content Management Framework

Project description

The CMFCalendar product is an example of creating a CMF Product. The CMFCalendar product is also expected to be a generally useful out of the box and skinnable to accomodate customization within your existing CMF instance. To see how to go about building a CMF product, this hopefully allows a developer to follow through the process of registering their product, skins, and help with the CMF by example. It shows how an object is created and registered with the types_tool, necessary skins added to the skins_tool, with the Calendar skins directory added to the skin paths, and providing portal_metadatool with an Element policy for the content_type of the object.

For installing set the active site configuration of your site’s setup tool to the CMFCalendar profile and import all steps.

After installing the CMFCalendar you should notice a calendar appear in your CMF. This is fully customisable to your portals needs.
