PloneFormGen Adapter: store, show/search, edit, csv-export, based on souper.soup
Soup Storage for PloneFormGen Form Data
This PloneFormGen Storage Adapter saves and index form-data in so called soup. A soup is an unstructured flat storage containing records with attributes (form-data). Attributes are indexed in an repoze.catalog. Thus complex queries on the data are possible.
It ships with an full-featured table view based on jquery.datatables. Datatables server-side processing enables to have large datasets processed. It provides a search over all columns and by single columns. Each column can be sorted.
Additional to the form data userid and timestamp of creations is logged.
A row can be edited. After save modification-timestamp, userid and changed fields are logged.
CSV-Export of all data is possible, including creators userid, creation- and last-modified-timestamp if selected.
Just depend in your buildout on the egg collective.pfg.soup. ZCML is loaded automagically with z3c.autoinclude.
Install Soup Adapter for PloneFormGen as an addon in Plone control-panel or portal_setup.
This package is written for Plone 4.2 or later.
