A link schema type representing an internal or external link.

Project description


This package provides a schema field that combines an internal and external link representation. It’s relatively low-tech.

It provides a widget that lets users enter links on the format:

``"Title":internal path or URI:"Description"``

Both title and description are optional. If an internal path is given, the field tries to resolve the object and stores only its UID.


  • Zope 2.10.4+


Include the ZCML-slug for the package to register the widget with formlib.

A schema definition for a field carrying a single link:

>>> from import Link
>>> field = Link(title=u"Link")

A list of link fields:

>>> from zope import schema
>>> field = schema.List(
...     title=u"Links",
...     value_type=Link)

To render the link from a page template:

<a tal:attributes="href link/@@absolute_url;
                   title link/description"
   tal:content="link/pretty_title_or_uri" />
