Plone UI integration for plone.tiles

Project description

Plone’s Specific Implementation of Tiles

Travis CI badge Coveralls badge is Plone’s UI integration for plone.tiles.

This package contains the following things:

  • A view @@add-tile, and an associated form, which can be used to create a new tile based on the tile’s schema. For transient tiles, this merely redirects to a URL with an appropriate query string. For persistent tiles, it will also save the necessary data. This will fire an IObjectCreatedEvent as well as an IObjectAddedEvent for the newly created tile (a transient object) when successfully submitted. In the case of the IObjectAddedEvent, the newParent attribute will be the tile’s context, and the newName attribute will be the tile’s id.

  • The @@add-tile view, when accessed directly, allows the user to choose from all available tiles (subject to the tile’s add permission) and redirects to the appropriate @@add-tile/<tile-type> URL to configure the tile.

  • A view @@edit-tile, and an associated form, which can be used to edit a tile based on the tile’s schema. This will fire an IObjectModifiedEvent for the modified tile (a transient object) when successfully submitted.

  • A view @@delete-tile, and associated form, which can be used to delete a tile and associated persistent data. This can also be called by AJAX code given appropriate request parameters. This will fire an IObjectRemovedEvent for the removed tile (a transient object). The oldParent attribute will be the tile’s context, and the oldName attribute will be the tile’s id.

  • A vocabulary, which contains all registered tile types.

  • A vocabulary, which contains all registered tile types, which have been registered for the current context.

  • A vocabulary, which contains all registered tile types, which have been registered for the current context, and, which are currently allowed to be added (for which the current user has required add permission).

The default add and edit forms should suffice for most use cases. You can use plone.autoform to configure alternative widgets.

If you need a custom form, you can register an add view as an adapter from (context, request, tileType), where tileType is an instance providing plone.tiles.interfaces.ITileType.

The actual integration of the various views is left up to other packages (such as the Mosaic editor).

4.0.0 (2022-12-02)

  • Add support for Plone 6 on Python 3.10 and 3.11. [maurits]

4.0.0a2 (2022-07-20)

  • Register our demo tiles when you explicitly load demo.zcml. Add them to the list in and [maurits]

  • Accept a fieldname in get_original_value in our scaling code. Needed for recent plone.namedfile versions. [maurits]

4.0.0a1 (2022-03-09)

  • Register our own IImageScaleFactory factory for persistent tiles. This fixes scaling images on tiles when the tile does not have the workaround of defining a property for the image field. [maurits]

  • Register our AnnotationStorage as IImageScaleStorage factory. We require plone.namedfile >= 6.0.0a2 for this. Fixes issue 48. [maurits]

  • Drop support for Python 2 and Plone 5.1. Plone 5.2 and 6.0 are supported, on Python 3. See issue 49. [maurits]

3.3.0 (2022-02-04)


  • Define download and display-file views that work for tiles. The original views in plone.namedfile cannot find the tile data. [maurits]

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed getting original image from tile. Until now, the images view tried to get the field from the tile instead of the tile data. This only worked when you had explicitly added a property with this field name on the tile. [maurits]

3.2.3 (2022-01-28)

  • Removed plone.namedfile[blobs] from the test extra. This has been empty since plone.namedfile 2.0, used since Plone 4.3.0. [maurits]

3.2.2 (2021-12-21)


  • test with github actions [petschki]

Bug fixes:

  • Fix imagescaling: missing srcset initialization, and wrong scale arguments (according to latest p.namedfile). Add test for imagescaling. [mamico]

  • Updated Travis test setup. Test with Plone 4.3, 5.1, 5.2. Last one on Py 2.7, 3.6. 3.7, 3.8. [maurits]

Bug fixes:

  • Update trove classifiers [petschki]

3.1.2 (2019-04-18)

Bug fixes:

  • Python 3 compatible urllib imports [petschki]

  • Fix imagescaling methods, by removing calls of no longer existing __of__ method [MrTango]

3.1.1 (2019-02-10)

  • Python 3 compatibility [vangheem, petschki]

3.1.0 (2018-07-05)

  • Deprecate registry record The registry record is still registered, but not used by [datakurre]

New features:

  • Add CMFEditions modifier to prevent (previously broken) versioning of blobs and relations in persistent tile data (in annotations); Whenever a previous version is restored, the blob and relation versions from the current working copy version are applied for the restored version [datakurre]

  • Add new vocabularies, and to list all registered tiles, tiles available in the current context and tiles allowed to be added in the current context by the current user [datakurre]

  • Add support for drafting preview when request has (requires >= 1.1.0) [datakurre]
