Sample package to demonstrate development of add-ons for the Plone CMS

Project Description


collective.package is a sample add-on package for Plone developers.


Boilerplate code from ZopeSkel is nice; but not quite as nice as example code.


You may install this add-on via Buildout, like so:

virtualenv-2.7 .
bin/pip install zc.buildout
bin/buildout init
cat << EOF > buildout.cfg
extends =
eggs += collective.package
bin/plone fg


This package contains code examples for common add-on package tasks in Plone. For example, creating a Python package that “shows up” as an installable add-on in the Plone control panel. Or installing an authentication plugin.

Here is a list of examples:

  • How do I make my package “show up” in Plone?
    • Use the Quick Installer.
  • How do I create an authentication plugin?
    • Use the Pluggable Auth Service.
