Allows to upload archive files (check readme for supported types) and access their contents trough the web, without having to download and extract them

Project description


Allow to view content of archive files into plone.

How it works

Add a File with zipped content, this will be marked with ‘collective.archiveviewer.interfaces.IArchiveFile’.

Now you can access the content trough web by appending ‘@@contents/$filename’ to the path of your file.

For instance, if you have a file ‘foo.html’ inside the archive you can view it by going to ‘’.

Supported archives

  • zip (application/zip)

NOTE: archives are supported trough adapters. You can simply register a named adapter providing ‘IArchiveReader’ interface and name it as the meta type to be supported (like ‘application/zip’).

Please, refer to ‘’ and ‘’ for understanding how to write yours.
