A sample package to demonstrate Plone add-on development

Project description


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


Boilerplate from template generators like ZopeSkel is nice, but not quite as nice as real, but generic, examples.

In the same way the collective developer’s manual ( aims to document every single occurence along the way to Plone coding zen, collective.package aims to code it then release it as an installable add-on.


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

extends =
versions = versions
parts = plone

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
user = admin:admin
eggs =


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 of course.
  • How do I create an authentication plugin? Use the Pluggable Auth Service, of course.
