File content type for Grok and Dolmen applications.

Project description

menhir.contenttype.file provides a content type for Dolmen based Grok applications.


The menhir.contenttype.file provides a very simple schema, extending the IDescriptiveSchema interface, from

>>> from import IDescriptiveSchema
>>> from menhir.contenttype.file import IFile

>>> IFile.isOrExtends(IDescriptiveSchema)

The IFile interface describes the data field, that is to hold the uploaded file or given bytes:

>>> for attr, doc in IFile.namesAndDescriptions():
...   print attr, ':', doc
data : <dolmen.file.field.FileField object at ...>

This IFile is directly provided by the File object, as defines it as its schema:

>>> from menhir.contenttype.file import File
>>> from dolmen.content import Content

>>> somefile = File(title=u"My nice file", data="Some file data")
>>> IFile.providedBy(somefile)

>>> from dolmen.content import schema
>>> IFile in schema.bind().get(somefile)

>>> somefile.title
u'My nice file'


The file uses a Blob storage for the data:

<dolmen.blob.file.BlobValue object at ...>

>>> print
Some file data


The content registers an icon, thanks to the package:

>>> from zope.component import getMultiAdapter
>>> from zope.publisher.browser import TestRequest

>>> request = TestRequest()
>>> icon = getMultiAdapter((somefile, request), name="icon")
>>> print icon
<zope.browserresource.icon.IconView object at ...>
