This cube creates a new entity type called Comment which could basically be read by every body but only added by application’s users. It also defines a relation comments which provides the ability to add a Comment which comments a Comment.

To use this cube, you want to add the relation comments on the entity type you want to be able to comment. For instance, let’s say your cube defines a schema for a blog. You want all the blog entries to be commentable. Here is how to define it in your schema:

from yams.buildobjs import RelationDefinition
class comments(RelationDefinition):
    subject = 'Comment'
    object = 'BlogEntry'
    cardinality = '1*'

Once this relation is defined, you can post comments and view threadable comments automatically on blog entry’s primary view.
