Grok-like layer for Zope 2
five.grok is a development layer for Zope 2, based on Grok framework concepts.
The development techniques are similar to the ones used with Grok framework.
It is based on grokcore namespace packages that were factored out of Grok framework.
Coming from Grok, the following components are available to Zope 2 developers:
- Zope 3 Component (Adapter, Global utilities, Subscribers),
- Views and Viewlets,
- Skins and resources directories,
- Page Templates (using the Zope 2 Page Templates),
- Formlib forms (optional, you need to include the extra form),
- Local sites and local utilities,
- Layout (optional, you need to include the extra layout).
All those components are available with exactly the same syntax than in grok. You just have to do:
from five import grok
After adding the dependency to five.grok in your project, you have to load the following ZCML:
<include package="five.grok" />
And for this release we recommend to pin down the following version in your buildout:
five.formlib = 1.0.4 five.localsitemanager = 2.0.5 grokcore.annotation = 1.3 grokcore.component = 2.5 grokcore.formlib = 1.9 grokcore.layout = 1.5.1 grokcore.security = 1.6.1 grokcore.site = 1.6.1 grokcore.view = 2.7 grokcore.viewlet = 1.10.1 martian = 0.14
Zope 2.13 is required. If you wish to use a previous version of Zope 2, look at five.grok 1.0 for Zope 2.10.x or five.grok 1.2 for Zope 2.12.x.
- Add an optional support for grokcore.layout, with the extra layout.
- Make formlib support optional. This is not included by default. If you whish to use formlib, you need to include the extra form for five.grok. Example: five.grok [form] >= 1.3.1.
- Fix the redirect method to properly work. Unlike in Zope 3, it doesn’t support trusted.
- Clean up code, update dependencies and tests, this release only works with Zope 2.13. [thefunny42]
- Require five.formlib for Zope 2.13 compatibility. This requires Zope 2.12.3 or later. [elro]
- Fixed problem with unrestrictedTraverse() and files in subfolders of grokked resource directories. This fix also depends on fixes in Zope 2.12.6 or later. [optilude]
- Fix namespace override in ZopeTwoPageTemplate, i.e. let users override ‘view’ for instance using the namespace method of a Grok view class. This bug was introduced in the 1.1 release. [thefunny42]
- Update code and tests to work with Zope 2.12. People using Zope 2.10 and 2.11 should keep using five.grok 1.0. [thefunny42 and optilude]
- Update to martian 0.11.1, grokcore.annotation 1.1 and grokcore.site 1.1, grokcore.view to 1.12.2. [vincentfretin]
- Local utility implements IAttributeAnnotatable, IContext like in grokcore.site. [thefunny42]
- Define an IFiveGrokAPI. [thefunny42]
- Fix the broken url method on views. [thefunny42]
- Reverted the CodeView base class, see grokcore.view changelog for more details. CodeView is still available as a backwards compatibility alias for View. Please update all references to CodeView to View. [vincentfretin]
- Added dependency on grokcore.view 1.9, grokcore.viewlet 1.1 and grokcore.formlib 1.2, and support for the new CodeView from grokcore.View. [optilude]
- Added support for annotations with grokcore.annotation. [thefunny42]
- Added support for local site and utilities with grokcore.site. [thefunny42]
- Fix grok.EditForm when used with grokcore.formlib 1.1. The Apply action was gone. [thefunny42]
- Let static resource directories allow access to unprotected subattributes to avoid authorisation problems when accessing them from protected code. [optilude]
- Do not create static resource directories if the ‘static’ directory does not actually exist. [optilude]
- Added support for viewlets with grokcore.viewlet. [thefunny42]
- Added support for the DirectoryResource component (new in grokcore.view 1.2). [thefunny42]
- Added support for using Zope 2 templates by default when doing from five import grok and using grok.PageTemplateFile (being consistent with grok.PageTemplate). [thefunny42]
- Added a convenient grok.Container. [thefunny42]
- Fix AutoFields (and form grokker) not to include OFS Zope 2 defined fields by default. This use to add a lot of buggy and wanted fields. [thefunny42]
- Added support for formlib forms with grokcore.formlib. [thefunny42]
- Added support for static resource directory. [thefunny42]
- Added support for inline templates and made Zope 2 template semantics the default when doing from five import grok and using grok.PageTemplate. [optilude]
- Added override to make templates use Five’s ViewPageTemplateFile instead of the one from zope.app.pagetemplate. [optilude]
- Added grokcore.view support with tests. [regebro, jfroche, gotcha et al.]
- Added tests for grok.subscriber directive. [kamon]
- Initial release (tests for adapters and utilities, initial support for views). [regebro, gotcha]
