A page, which displays an RSS feeds (or aggregation of several feeds) in the same way as RSS portlet does

Project Description

RSS Listing is a content type, which displays an RSS feed in the same way as the default RSS Portlet does.

Public resources

RSS Listing installs a public resource ++resource++jyu.rsslisting.images/rsslisting_icon.gif for its content type icon:

>>> from Products.Five.testbrowser import Browser
>>> browser = Browser(); portal_url = self.portal.absolute_url()
>>> browser.open(portal_url + "/++resource++jyu.rsslisting.images/rsslisting_icon.gif")

and ++resource++jyu.rsslisting.styles/rsslisting.css for its stylesheet:

>>> browser.open(portal_url + "/++resource++jyu.rsslisting.styles/rsslisting.css")

Creating content

By default, adding RSS Listing is not allowed globally. Let’s allow it to make it easier to test:

>>> from Products.CMFCore.utils import getToolByName
>>> portal_types = getToolByName(self.portal, "portal_types")
>>> rss_listing = portal_types.get("RSS Listing")
>>> rss_listing
<DynamicViewTypeInformation at /plone/portal_types/RSS Listing>

>>> rss_listing.global_allow = True
>>> rss_listing.global_allow
True

Now RSS Listing is addable by any contributor. Let’s

  1. open the front page:

    >>> browser.open(portal_url)
    
  2. enter the log in details:

    >>> browser.getControl(name='__ac_name').value = 'contributor'
    >>> browser.getControl(name='__ac_password').value = 'secret'
    
  3. and log in:

    >>> browser.getControl(name='submit').click()
    >>> "You are now logged in" in browser.contents
    True
    

Now we should be able to see RSS Listing in the add item menu:

>>> browser.getLink(id='rss-listing').url.endswith("createObject?type_name=RSS+Listing")
True

To add a single RSS Listing

  1. click it from the add item menu:

    >>> browser.getLink(id='rss-listing').click()
    
  2. enter RSS information:

    >>> browser.getControl(name='title').value = "Slashdot"
    >>> browser.getControl(name='description').value = "Yesterday's news!"
    >>> browser.getControl(name='url').value = "http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot"
    >>> browser.getControl(name='count').value = "10"
    >>> browser.getControl(name='timeout').value = "100"
    
  3. and submit the form:

    >>> browser.getControl(name='form_submit').click()
    

Now a new RSS Listing has been created:

>>> 'slashdot' in self.portal.objectIds()
True

Publishing content

By default, RSS Listing can be published by any reviewer. Let’s

  1. log out:

    >>> browser.getLink('Log out').click()
    
  2. open the front page:

    >>> browser.open(portal_url)
    
  3. enter the log in details:

    >>> browser.getControl(name='__ac_name').value = 'reviewer'
    >>> browser.getControl(name='__ac_password').value = 'secret'
    
  4. and log in:

    >>> browser.getControl(name='submit').click()
    >>> "You are now logged in" in browser.contents
    True
    

To publish the RSS Listing

  1. navigate to the content:

    >>> browser.open(portal_url + "/slashdot")
    
  2. and publish it:

    >>> browser.getLink('Publish').click()
    

Viewing content

Published RSS Listing should be visible to everybody. Let’s

  1. log out:

    >>> browser.getLink('Log out').click()
    
  2. navigate to the content:

    >>> browser.open("%(portal_url)s/slashdot" % vars())
    

RSS Listing is being rendered:

>>> "Yesterday's news!" in browser.contents
True

With required 10 feed items:

>>> browser.contents.count("<a href=\"http://rss.slashdot.org/")
10
