A tile that shows a set of collection results with a customizable layout

Project description

A tile that shows collection results with customizable layouts

Features

  • Emulates the old portlet collection behaviors
  • Mosaic-ready
  • Additional css class field, to append a custom css class to the tile container
  • Customizable layouts list

Installation

Install collective.tiles.collection by adding it to your buildout:

[buildout]
...
eggs =
    collective.tiles.collection

and then running bin/buildout

Usage

You can’t use this tile without a tile manager (or maybe, you can if you create new tiles manually in some specific context) like Mosaic or redturtle.tiles.management

When you try to create a new collection tile, you have a form like the portlet’s one.

Customizable layouts

When you create/edit a collection tile, there is a field that allows you to select the final layout from a list. This list is generated with a specific set of view that satisfy following rules:

  • The Class must implement ICollectiveTilesCollectionLayer interface
  • In the Class there should be an attribute display_name with a human-readable title
  • The template need to define a macro called collection-tile-macro

This is an example:

configure.zcml:

<browser:page
    name="additional_renderer"
    permission="zope2.View"
    for="*"
    class=".additional_render.View"
    layer=".interfaces.ISomeBrowserLayer"
    template="additional_render.pt"
/>

additional_render.py:

from Products.Five.browser import BrowserView
from collective.tiles.collection.interfaces import ICollectionTileRenderer
from zope.interface import implements
from collective.tiles.collection import _


class AdditionalView(BrowserView):
    implements(ICollectionTileRenderer)

    display_name = _("Another tile layout")

additional_render.pt:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en"
      xmlns:tal="http://xml.zope.org/namespaces/tal"
      xmlns:metal="http://xml.zope.org/namespaces/metal"
      xmlns:i18n="http://xml.zope.org/namespaces/i18n"
      lang="en"
      metal:use-macro="here/main_template/macros/master"
      i18n:domain="collective.tiles.collection">
  <body>
    <metal:macro define-macro="collection-tile-macro">
      ...
    </metal:macro>
  </body>
</html>
