Tools for setting up a Plone site.

Project Description


Tools for Plone setuphandler steps when running Generic Setup import Steps.


Add calendar types to Products.CMFPlone.CalendarTool.


Add a group to plone.


Add a user to plone.


Create an Archetype content item in the given context. This function is called by create_item_runner for each content found in it’s given data structure.


Create Archetype contents from a list of dictionaries, where each dictionary describes a content item and optionally it’s childs.


Remove content items from a context.


Exclude an item from the navigation and retract it, if it was published. For example, to hide “Members” folder, if it shouldn’t be shown to anonymous users.


Return True if marker_file CANNOT be found in the current profile’s context. Used to exit a setuphandler step if it isn’t called in profile’s context.


Load a file from a directory and return it’s data.


Persistently configure a specific transformation in portal_transforms.


Configure safe_html transformation from portal_transforms, so that it also allows embed and object elements. Also configure the style_whitelist to allow some styles needed for TinyMCE to bypass a limitation found in beta versions of Plone 4.0.


Helper function to update a schema of an already registered portlet.


  • Write integration tests.
