Configure application plugins based on interfaces

Project description Current version on PyPI Supported Python versions


Products.PluginRegistry offers a simple persistent registry which allows the site manager to register components for specific interfaces, and to order them.


The normal way it install this package is via setuptools, either via easy_install into a virtual environment:

$ cd /path/to/virtualenv
$ bin/easy_install Products.PluginRegistry

or by including the package in the configuration for a zc.buildout-based deployment:

$ cd /path/to/buildout
$ grep "eggs =" buildout.cfg
eggs = Products.PluginRegistry

The product can also be installed as a dependency of another distribution.

To install this package manually, without using setuptools, untar the package file downloaded from the PyPI site and look for the folder named “PluginRegistry” underneath the “Products” folder at the root of the extracted tarball. Copy or link this “PluginRegistry” folder into your Zope “Products” folder and restart Zope.
