Project Description

Overview

Eye provides a browser-based UI to browse the contents of a ZODB database.

It can browse “broken” ZODB objects, so you don’t have to have your application code present in the Python environment to use the tool.

It can also be used as a generic Python object browser.

Installation

At this point Eye has been tested on Python 2.6.

Eye has a few dependencies. Therefore it’s recommended to install it in a virtualenv or buildout to keep it isolated from other software on your system.

Assuming you have virtualenv installed, the following commands will install Eye:

$ virtualenv --no-site-packages eye
$ cd eye
$ bin/pip install eye

This creates a new virtualenv in the eye directory, and installs the eye console script into the bin subdirectory.

Basic usage

Inspect a ZODB filestorage

$ bin/eye [path to Data.fs]

Then open your browser to http://localhost:8080/

Persistent objects are shown in blue; other objects included in the pickles of persistent objects are shown in black.

Inspect an arbitrary object

>>> from datetime import datetime
>>> foo = datetime.now()
>>> import eye; eye.eye(foo)

  • zope2.zodbbrowser: Runs in Zope 2; provides a bit more app-specific info.
  • zodbbrowser: Based on the Zope 3.4.0 KGS; displays historical object revisions.
  • z3c.zodbbrowser: An apparently unfinished GSOC project; based on wxPython.
