Project description


TTW template customization manager.

This package aims to bring support for TTW jbot(or “Just a bunch of templates”) support for Plone. jbot customizations can be added for each plone site. There is likely a minor performance impact on utilizing this product. No benchmarks have been taken yet.

This package is an extension of z3c.jbot which allows you to do template overrides in python packages for Plone.

JBOT with Diazo

All you need to do is install this package on a plone site and then create a jbot folder in your diazo theme.

Site customizations

Once you install the product on a plone site, in Site Setup, there will be a jbot control panel entry. From there, you can add your jbot customizations for that site.

Conflicting customizations

If the same resource is customized at both the site and theme level, the theme customization takes precedence.


This implementation requires the use of the data directory of a running plone client. For most plone installs, the directory used will be something like <buildout-dir>/var/instance/jbot. The user running the plone client will need write access to this directory.


The template customizations are not run in restricted python. Be sure to inspect any third party themes that utilize this. Additionally, be sure to trust site owner who will be adding their own customizations.
