DEPRECATED: Five bridges and patches to use Chameleon with Zope.

Project description


This package is deprecated. It was integrated into Zope at version 4.0a2. It is no longer needed.


3.0 (2017-11-30)

  • Mark as deprecated. This package is no longer needed with Zope >= 4 as its code got included in Zope.

2.2.5 (2017-11-26)

  • Fix test_edit_with_errors to not import a private variable from zope.pagetemplate. Fixes test failure with latest zope.pagetemplate.

2.2.4 (2016-04-19)

  • Skip processing instruction code blocks in templates that use the restricted evaluation engine. [mauritsvanrees]

2.2.3 (2015-07-18)

  • Add version to to make zest.releaser happy. [timo]

  • Compatibility with Chameleon >= 2.14 [tomgross]

2.2.2 (2014-04-15)

  • Fix test. [davisagli]

2.2.1 (2012-01-08)


  • Whitespace between attributes is now reduced to a single whitespace character.


  • The path traverser now correctly renders callables, applying the template namespace as keyword arguments. Previously, only the request name would be passed.

  • The content provider expression now correctly applies TAL namespace data.

  • Avoid duplicate HTML decoding. This fixes an issue which was introduced because newer Chameleon releases decode all expression inputs by default.

2.2.0 (2011-10-10)

  • Update implementation to use component-based template engine configuration, plugging directly into the Zope Toolkit framework.

  • Declare RepeatItem as public object with allowed subobjects [leorochael]

  • Bump minimum versions of dependencies and sourcecodegen to fix lp#853731 and lp#848200. [leorochael]

  • Fixed encoding issue with restricted Python expression. The Python 2.4 AST parser does not accept unicode input and the expression string must be explicitly encoded to a byte string. [malthe]

2.1.5 (2011-08-11)

  • Reuse template instance on cook. [malthe]

  • Use the template source string available in the _text attribute instead of reading the file (again). [leorochael, malthe]

  • Use secure moduler importer for both Zope 2 and 3 templates. This fixes issue #34. [malthe]

2.1.4 (2011-07-28)

  • Upgrade to newest Zope integration package.

2.1.3 (2011-07-23)

  • Fixed issue with traversal and dictionary optimization (the optimization has been removed). [malthe]

  • Fixed compatibility issue with the UnauthorizedBinding class and traversal. [malthe]

2.1.2 (2011-07-21)

  • Wire in restricted python builtins as imports. Previously these were added to the dynamic context. [malthe]

  • Use the Python expression from the package for the trusted page template engine. This difference between this and the standard Python expression from Chameleon is that the pipe character ("|") has the meaning of fallback in Chameleon, but not in the reference ZPT implementation (where it’s only available for path expressions). [malthe]

2.1.1 (2011-07-15)

  • Added builtins from RestrictedPython to context for Zope 2 templates.

    This fixes name error issues on templates that use one or more utility function builtins normally available to Python expressions in restricted mode. [malthe]

2.1 (2011-07-14)

  • Point release.

  • Use trusted path expression for trusted expression engine. [malthe]

  • Fixed template context issues where a request would be required by the path expression compiler but not provided (typically when in a situation where the user is unauthorized to view content). [malthe]

2.1-rc1 (2011-07-14)

  • Major architectural change.

    The package no longer contains own template classes; instead, patches are made to switch from the reference TAL interpreter to the Chameleon TAL compiler. [malthe]

2.0-rc3 (2011-07-07)

  • Refactor custom Python expression implementation to use the parse method. This builds directly on the base implementation and its behavior. [malthe]

2.0-rc2 (2011-05-24)

  • Have the base template class implement IPageTemplate from zope.pagetemplate. This interface is relied on for a number of adapter registrations and the missing interface declaration affects packages such as plone.caching. [malthe]

  • Set default reload mode to the Zope 2 application server configuration’s debug_mode value. [malthe]

2.0-rc1 (2011-02-28)

  • Update to Chameleon 2.0.

    This release includes many changes and is a complete rewrite of the 1.x series.

    Note that Python 2.5+ is now required. [malthe]

  • Python-expressions are now subject to access-control security. [malthe]

1.3.3 - 2010-09-30

  • Apply patches at import time instead of product initialisation. [wichert]

1.3.2 - 2010-09-29

  • Add a same_type method to the default namespace. [wichert]

1.3.1 - 2010-09-23

  • Added support for eager loading (environment variable CHAMELEON_EAGER). This flag should be passed only in development mode and will reveal any templates which do not parse. [malthe]

1.3 - 2010-09-08

  • Added support for PageTemplate and ZopePageTemplate. [malthe]

1.2 - 2010-08-30

  • Fixed acquisition-wrapping issue: we need to wrap with the parent to avoid a pair of template objects (original and patched).

1.1 - 2010-05-15

  • Add DateTime to the base context. Fixes problems with certain ZMI pages. [wichert]

1.0 - 2010-05-13

  • If template is not an acquirer, wrap it implicitly. [malthe]

  • Removed unused ViewletManager ZCML handler. [malthe]

0.10 - 2010-04-20

  • Improve five.grok support [fretin]

  • Check if templates are acquisition-aware before trying to wrap them. This fixes problems with METAL macros in some ZMI pages. [wichert]

0.9 - 2010-04-14

  • Basic support for five.grok templates. [wichert]

0.8 - 2010-01-05

  • Fixed some calling convention oddity that would result in the view instance being passed doubly as the template arguments.

0.7 - 2009-05-20

  • Default encoding of the base template set to UTF-8. [malthe]

  • Update to latest Chameleon. [malthe]

  • Patch macros attribute. [malthe]

0.6 - 2009-04-06

  • Avoid another case of unconditionally attempting to Acquisition wrap template files. We do have an interface check for this. [hannosch]

0.5 - 2009-02-17

  • Added test function to template context. [malthe]

  • Fixed edge-case (special case?) where the view of a ViewPageTemplateFile is really only the view for a view. [malthe]

  • Added patch for Products.PageTemplates.PageTemplateFile. [malthe]

  • Rework the “full namespace provided to path expression” change introduced in 0.3. We no longer call the expensive locals() function but construct a minimal namespace with the context and request ourselves. [hannosch]

  • If the __get__ method is called uninstantiated, just return the class itself. [malthe] 0.4 (released 2/13/2009)

  • Fixed issue where the template parameter to a viewlet manager directive was effectively ignored. [malthe]

  • Fixed acquisition-wrapping issue with the (patched) bound template class (could cause infinite loop due to cyclic acquisition chain). [malthe]

  • Moved evaluate_path and evaluate_exists over to, adding support for global path() and exists() functions for use in python: expressions to it (LP #317967). [sidnei] 0.3 (released 12/17/2008)

  • Use bobo traversal if OFS.interfaces.ITraversable interface is provided. [malthe]

  • Adjusted the path expression to provide the full namespace to the render function and not just the request. This matches Zope2 behavior. [hannosch] 0.2 (released 11/29/2008)

  • From Zope 2.12 onwards, do not acquisition-wrap content provider. [malthe]

  • Split out CMF-related code to separate package. [malthe]

  • Compatibility changes to support Zope 2.10. [malthe] 0.1 (released 11/19/2008)

  • Initial release.

  • Simplified template class inheritance. [malthe]

  • Added path and exists functions to skin template namespace. [malthe]

  • Added call-support for old-style classes in path expressions. [malthe]

  • Added monkey-patches to replace template engine for module-level view page template instances. [malthe]

  • Made EContext class more robust. [malthe]

  • Register custom file-system page template class for use with CMF form controllers. [malthe]

  • Register custom file-system page template class for use with CMF directory views. [malthe]

  • Added meta-directives to register browser views, viewlets and viewlet managers using Chameleon templates. [malthe]

  • Updated to latest API. [malthe]

  • Package structure. [hannosch]
