Plone add-on to host document templates

Project description

Collective.templates adds a folder to Plone where users could upload document templates and set categories e.g. compatibility, license. It’s also possible to rate the templates and give feedback to the template authors.

Features

  • The add-on has a cofiguration settings entry in the site administration yet. It’s form contains fields to set a choice of categories, platforms, licenses and versions of the product (for which the templates are used). There are also fields to set the allowed file extensions of the template files, the image files (e.g. screenshots, logos) and the documentation.
  • A template center with listing and display of template projects respectively to their rating, a search form and a listing of the latest projects.
  • The template center edit form contains fields to set the title of the center and the name of the templates and add a description of the center.
  • Template projects with the abbility to upload template files and replace them with newer ones. The edit form of the project contains fields to choose the product versions, categories, licenses and plattforms.
  • The add-on send message once a new project was added. It push a message too, once a project was submitted for publication. It send an email to the project contact address for every change in the workflow status of the project.
  • The user could send a message to the author of a template via a mail. The mail form uses a recaptcha widget. The contact data of the author of the template will not be made public.
  • The file extensions of the uploaded templates will be checked. It is possible to set the allowed file extensions distinct for the specific use case of the template center. They could be dynamically changed at any time.
  • The add-on sends messages to the project contact email on every edit of the template center’s product versions field (thus the contributors could potentially add this new product version to their project).
