Project description

Automatic Workflow Documentation

Generates a Graphviz file (or directly creates an SVG) from a Zope/CMF DCWorkflow defintion.


  • in ZMI got to the workflow which you want to document.

  • there are two additional tabs one for raw DOT data file, one for a rendered SVG file.


  • generation of Graphviz file with states and transitions.

  • each state shows a permissions-table

  • each transition shows its guards.


  • add views to control_panel


Just depend in your buildout on the egg collective.wfautodoc. When used within Plone ZCML is loaded automagically with `z3c.autoinclude`. Otherwise add the package to buildout section `instance` `zcml` variable.

This package is written for Plone but works also in a pure Zope2/CMF environment.
