person component for the CubicWeb framework

Project description


person provides person informations :

  • firstname
  • surname / lastname
  • civility
  • arbitrary text description
  • a relation to an email address (NB, the EmailAddress entity is automatically provided by cubicweb).

If the addressbook cube is used, persons will also have phone and postal_address relations to store more contact information.

There is a special relation called ‘primary_email’. A person can be linked to multiple email addresses (using the ‘use_email’ relation). The primary email must be unique. At the creation of the first email, this relation is automatically added (though you can change it later, of course).


  • addressbook cube


In addition of basic entity views, this cube provides :

  • VCardPersonView, displays a person in the VCard file format

    (.. _VCard on wikipedia: .

    This view creates a file called vcard.vcf which can be open in your addressbook application (Kmail, Thunderbird and so on). In order to generate this file, you have to access to a specific view using an url address with ?vid=vcard suffix.

    How to personalize the person primary view in order to add a link for the vcard ?

     class PersonalizedPersonPrimaryView(PersonPrimaryView):
         def render_entity_attributes(self, entity):
             super(PersonalizedPersonPrimaryView, self).render_entity_attributes(entity)
             self.w(u'<div><a href="%s">export contact as vcard</a></div>'  % entity.absolute_url(vid='vcard'))
    This view will not be selected by default. You have to registered
    this view or add a selector. For more information, please refer to
    XXX in the doc.
  • a civility facet, this facet (XXX: ref to facet doc) will be shown if a view displays a result set of at least two Person entities with different civilities.
