CMS user interface for Plone
plone.app.cmsui installs a new content management user interface for Plone. For the moment, it is an experiment only, but hopefully one that will point the way towards Plone’s future.
You can use the following buildout to test plone.app.cmsui against Plone 4.1rc3 - update versions as applicable:
[buildout] parts = instance extends = http://good-py.appspot.com/release/plone.app.cmsui/1.0a1?plone=4.1rc3 [instance] recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance user = admin:admin eggs = Plone plone.app.cmsui
Make sure you install the “CMS User Interface” profile when creating your Plone site.
If you are using Diazo and plone.app.theming, you can enable the CMS UI in your site by including the following rule:
<before css:theme-children="body" css:content="#plone-cmsui-trigger" />
All CMS UI resources are loaded in a theme (in the portal_skins sense) called ‘cmsui’. Using the concept of resource bundles (in Products.ResourceRegistries 2.1a1), resources are segregated between this theme and the theme (probably ‘Sunburst Theme’) used for the public site.
