Skype portlet for Plone 3.
A Plone 3 style portlet to show skype contacts with an status icon. By default skype names are fetched from the user-profiles of available users. We assume a property ‘skype’ here. This module does not provide it.
BETA At this time its all code in progress, it works, but bugs might be left. Also a sane caching is not implemented now.
This is a python module made with zopes component architecture and using plones infrastructure.
By default the portlet takes all available users and check if they have one of the properties: skype, skypeid, skype_id. You can overrule this behaviour by writing an own class implementing ISkypeNameFetcher and register it for your needs.
Once registered and setup for your site jsut go to your portlet-manager and add a sykpe portlet.
