Small wrapper package to add support for collective.proxyprops

Project Description


This package listens for a IChildSiteCreation event and then adds a Proxy Properties local utility to that child site.

This package along with the Proxy Properties package are proof of concepts and are subject to re-writes :)

Lineage Proxy Props Tests

First a little set up:

>>> import zope.component
>>> from p4a.subtyper import interfaces
>>> from Products.CMFCore.interfaces import IPropertiesTool

Let’s enable a Child Site.

First we go ahead and register the default engine utility.

>>> from p4a.subtyper import engine
>>> zope.component.provideUtility(engine.Subtyper())

Now we can query the engine as we need information.

>>> subtyper = zope.component.getUtility(interfaces.ISubtyper)
>>> self.login('contributor')
>>> _ = self.portal.invokeFactory("Folder", "folder")

At first the simple folder we created has no subtype.

>>> subtyper.existing_type(self.portal.folder) is None
>>> subtyper.change_type(self.portal.folder, u'collective.lineage.childsite')
>>> subtyper.existing_type(self.portal.folder)
<DescriptorWithName name=collective.lineage.childsite; descriptor=<collective.lineage.descriptors.ChildSiteDescriptor ...>>
>>> interfaces.ISubtyped.providedBy(self.portal.folder)

Then we test that the subscriber from lineage.proxyprops has done its job and added a ProxyProperties utility to the microsite.

>>> sm = self.portal.folder.getSiteManager()
>>> sm.getUtility(IPropertiesTool)
<collective.proxyproperties.ProxyProperties ...>
