Templates for Plone projects.

Project description

bobtemplates.eea provides mr.bob templates to generate packages for EEA projects.

This is a custom fork of bobtemplates.plone


Package created with bobtemplates.eea use the current best-practices when creating an add-on. It also support’s GIT by default, to keep track of changes one is doing with the bobtemplates.

Provided templates

  • addon
  • buildout

Provided subtemplates

These templates are meant to be used inside a package which was created by the addon template.

  • behavior
  • content_type
  • restapi_service
  • theme
  • theme_barceloneta
  • view
  • viewlet
  • vocabulary


Add-ons created with bobtemplates.eea are tested to work in Plone 4.3.x and Plone 5. They should also work with older versions but that was not tested. It should work on Linux, Mac and Windows.


You can install bobtemplates.eea as every other normal Python package with pip inside a virtualenv or better with pipenv.

Installion with pipenv

pipenv install bobtemplates.eea

Installation with pip in a virtualenv

You can also install bobtemplates.eea with pip in a virtualenv. If you don’t have an active virtualenv, you can create one inside your project directory.

virtualenv .

Then either activate the virtualenv:

source ./bin/activate

or just use the binaries directly inside the bin folder as below:

./bin/pip install bobtemplates.eea

Use in a buildout

parts += mrbob

recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs =

This creates a mrbob-executable in your bin-directory.


As bobtemplates.eea is a template for mr.bob, we use mrbob to run the templates.

If you are using buildout or an unactivated virtualenv, you can use mrbob like this:

./bin/mrbob bobtemplates.eea:addon -O src/

If you are using pipenv or an activated virtualenv, you can use mrbob like this:

Activate pipenv shell:

pipenv shell

or activate your virtualenv:

source bin/activate
mrbob bobtemplates.eea:addon -O src/

This will create your Plone package inside the src directory.

See the documentation of mr.bob for further information.


You can set all mr.bob configuration parameters in your ~/.mrbob file.

Here is an example:

verbose = False

[variables] = Alin Voinea =
author.github.user = avoinea
plone.version = 4.3
#package.git.init = y
#package.git.autocommit = n
#package.git.disabled = n

dexterity_type_global_allow = n
dexterity_type_filter_content_types = y
dexterity_type_activate_default_behaviors = n
dexterity_type_supermodel = n
