Plone ContentRules Engine

Project description


plone.contentrules provides a “pure Zope” implementation of a a rules engine which allows arbitrary conditions and actions to be combined into rules, and rules to be executed dependent on events.

You can think of this as somewhat similar to user-assembled mail filtering rules or something like Apple’s Automator. It is used by to provide such functionality for Plone.
