Sanitize a plone site for development use by Makina Corpus.

Project Description


This provide a script cg.devmode which can do some actions on a zope instance.

The main use is when you grab the production datafs, you ‘ll need to sanitize the content a little. The sanitization include changing all passwords and all emails at once.

Another use is for running scripts without any security (we just give us all rights ;))

Actions & usage

Changing all email for all users:

./bin/cg.devmode -m

Changing all passwords

./bin/cg.devmode -p  --password=secret

Changing the administrator password

./bin/cg.devmode -a  --password=secret

Running a script with all security stuff removed

./bin/cg.devmode -r --script=</path/to/>  [--script-args="String"] # equivalent of ./bin/instance run String except for security


Running with debug

./bin/cg.devmode -v [ARGS]

Giving an alternative zope configuration file

./bin/cg.devmode -c <CONFIGGILE>

Specifying the plone site id

./bin/cg.devmode -l <PLONE_SITE_ID>

Specifying the admin user

./bin/cg.devmode --user <ADMIN_USER>

collective.generic.devmode Installation

To install collective.generic.devmode 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.generic.devmode``.

    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.

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

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

    extra-paths = ${instance:extra-paths}
    # in an oldschool zope2 install, zope2home/lib/python must be in extra-paths!
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    $ ./bin/buildout
