Download content views as PDF
aws.pdfbook is a product that adds a new style to a Plone 3.x portal. It creates a new skin selection to the ‘portal_skins’ tool (called PDFBook), and registers a custom stylesheet (called pdfbook.css) with the ‘portal_css’ tool.
The following softwares should be installed:
- Plone 3 or 4
- recode (optional)
- htmldoc (required)
In your buildout.cfg file:
[buildout] ... eggs = ... aws.pdfbook
- The site charset is utf-8
- The server buffer for downloading has 40000 bytes.
increasing the buffer size may speed up download but at the expense of a bigger memory footprint.
Otherwise you can change these default values in your zope.conf or in buildout.cfg like this:
[instance] recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance ... zope-conf-additional = ... <product-config pdfbook> # Your site charset (default: utf-8) site-charset utf-8 # The download buffer bytes size (default: 40000) download-buffer-size 40000 </product-config> ...
In Plone go to the ‘Site Setup’ page and click on the ‘Add/Remove Products’ link.
Choose aws.pdfbok (check its checkbox) and click the ‘Install’ button.
The go as soon as possible to the PDF Book configuration panel and configure according to your system settings and your layout preferences.
More particularly, you may change default pdfbook options. See the pdfbook documentation for the various available options.
It is strongly recommanded to use linking with UID in your visual editor preferences. Otherwise images may not display in topics prints.
Add a template for your content types.
Assuming you have a personal content type that implements the myproduct.interfaces.IMyContentType interface, You must add a view like this one:
<browser:page name="printlayout" for="myproduct.interfaces.IMyContentType" layer="aws.pdfbook.interfaces.IAWSPDFBookLayer" permission="zope.Public" template="templates/mycontenttype.pt" />
Keep the following attributes as above:
Examples for standard content types are provided in the browser/transformers.zcml configuration and associated files.
Otherwise aws.pdfbook provides a default template that may or may not fit with paper layout.
If the default layout for personal or third party content types is somehow awful, you may blacklist such content types in the configuration panel.
This version is still alpha. Thus has some todos like:
- unit tests to add
- internationalize and translate the forms
- cleanup old useless code from Products.PDFBook by John Doe.
- Initial release
