Grok: Now even cavemen can use Zope 3!

Project description

What is grok?

Grok makes it easier to get started with a Zope 3 web application.

Grok uses the Component Architecture and builds on Zope 3 concepts like content objects (models), views, and adapters. Its simplicity lies in using convention over configuration and sensible defaults when wiring components together. That means neither a configuration language like ZCML nor a lot of repetition are needed to create a web application with grok.

Who is grok?

Grok is a friendly caveman from the Stone Age. He has a big club that he hunts mammoths with. He will also use this club to smash anything he doesn’t like.

“ME GROK SMASH ZCML!”

Getting grok

The easiest way to get started with grok is to install the grokproject package (e.g. via easy_install grokproject) and then create a new project area by calling the grokproject script like so:

$ grokproject MyProject
... many lines of output here

This will create a project area in MyProject as well as download and install grok and Zope 3 (the application server grok is built on).

You can also get grok from the subversion repository:

svn co svn://svn.zope.org/repos/main/grok/trunk grok

Then follow the instructions of INSTALL.txt.
