Addon product for plone to edit images on online webservices

Project Description


This package will add links on Images to edit them on external webservices. It works for:

  • Archetypes image fields
  • ATImages

The activation of those services is controlled by settings in a specific control panel on the plone site setup.

Currently, we support only pixlr, fotoflexer and aviary.

You can view a Demo.

Note that we integrate plone.protect to ensure a minimum level of security against CSRF attacks.

collective.externalimageeditor Installation

To install collective.externalimageeditor into the global Python environment (or a workingenv), using a traditional Zope 2 instance, you can do this:

  • When you’re reading this you have probably already run

    ``easy_install collective.externalimageeditor``.

    Find out how to install setuptools (and EasyInstall) here:

  • If you are using Zope 2.9 (not 2.10), get pythonproducts and install it via:

    python install --home /path/to/instance

    into your Zope instance.

  • Create a file called collective.externalimageeditor-configure.zcml in the /path/to/instance/etc/package-includes directory. The file should only contain this:

    <include package="collective.externalimageeditor" />

Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to manage your project, you can do this:

  • Add collective.externalimageeditor to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

    recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
    zcml =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    $ ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package’s configure.zcml file.
