Rating widget based on thumbs up and down.

Project description

This will add those terribly “delish” little thumbs all over facebook to products of your choosing. By default, only logged in users can rate a product, and once they are logged in they can vote once (and change their vote at any time)


Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to add the package to your buildout config and rerun buildout. If you want it as a viewlet below the content title, you must follow the viewlet directions below before restarting and installing. Otherwise install immediately and then skip to the section on browser views.

As a Viewlet

Then, in the configure.zcml in the base of your product you need to tell which content types should display the thumbs. For example, with the PloneSoftwareCenter product, the configure.zcml has the lines:

<include package="cioppino.twothumbs" />
<class class=".content.project.PSCProject">
   <implements interface="cioppino.twothumbs.interfaces.ILoveThumbsDontYou" />

That little diddy would add the thumbs viewlet to the PSCProject product only. You only need to include the package 1 time but you need to add the class block for every content type you would like to show the thumbs.

As a Browser View

Additionally, you can generate the widget on any content page in any place by just adding a few lines to your template:

<div tal:content="structure here/@@rate-if-you-dare"/>


If you used to use plone.contentratings and want to migrate to the thumbs product, there is an example in the trunk of PloneSoftwareCenter. It’s pretty easy. Please see for an example.

This product was initially developed at the Plone Cioppino Sprint in Bodega Bay 2011. The source code is filled with plenty of inside jokes and may only be maintainable after drinking copious numbers of Manhattans. Without the [drink] support of everyone there, this may not have been made possible. Big ups. Changelog =========
