Plone.api for TAL, use in pt file.

The plone.api is an elegant and simple API, built for humans wishing to develop with Plone.

But, at template file(*.pt), these useful functions can not be used directly, such as 'api.portal.get()'

Through browerview's design, so that these functions can be used on the pt file.


- **@@portal_get** mapping to **api.portal.get()**
- **@@user_get_current** mapping to **api.user.get_current()**
- **@@user_is_anonymous** mapping to **api.user.is_anonymous()**


For example, you can use **@@user_is_anonymous** at template, such as:

<div tal:condition="context/@@user_is_anonymous">

or, you can use **@@portal_get** at template, such as:

<div tal:define="portal context/@@portal_get">
