Audio playlist player for Plone

Project description


The Plone add-on collective.playlist provides a playlist and a track content type. The player is per default a sticky footer. Optional as an alternative is a player in a pop up window that can be launched via a play button.

Pop Up Player

A click on the play button opens a window with playlist and player.

Playlist on Mobile Device


The Add-On uses JPlayer [1].

Initial playlist

An initial playlist with tracks is created at /playlist.

Multiple playlists

Create additional playlists. The player takes the one with the newest publishing date.

Where are the audio files?

  • You can add tracks with audio files to a playlist.
  • You can reference audio files with links.
  • You can reference external audio files with links via remote url.

Sticky Footer

The site is navigable while the player continues to play thanks to pjax [2]. Pjax works with browsers that support the history.pushState() API. When the API isn’t supported, Pjax goes into fallback mode (and it just does nothing). See Browser Support [3].

The sticky footer is shown if and only if a published playlist exists. For a qualified user the player is shown even for an unpublished playlist.

Pop Up Player

The pop up player is per default deactivated. You can activate it via @@manage-viewlets view like localhost:8080/Plone/@@manage-viewlets

A play button is shown on top of each page if and only if a published playlist exists. For a qualified user it is shown even for an unpublished playlist. Click the play button to open the player. A menu to edit the playlist and its tracks is presented to qualified users.



Layout can be modified in control panel.
