Skype portlet for Plone 3.

Project Description


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.

You need to include it in you buildouts eggs and zcml sections. To make it available in Plone you need to assign it to a portlet-manager. This is usally done in your profiles portlets.xml file. consult the Plone documentation for details. In your profile also add to portal_javascript registry.

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.
