Grokkers for plone.tiles

Project Description

This package provides declarative configuration (grokkers) for the plone.tiles package.


A basic tile is configured like this:

from five import grok
from plone.directives import tiles

from my.package import MyMessageFactory as _
from my.package.interfaces import IMyTileSchema

class MyTile(tiles.Tile):
    grok.title(_(u"My title"))
    grok.description(_(u"My description"))



  • A persistent tile can be configured by deriving from PersistentTile instead of Tile.
  • The context(), requires(), name(), and layer() directives are used in the same way as they are for a view derived from grok.View.
  • Templates are associated using the same semantics as are used for views. For example, a tile in defined in the class MyTile would be associated with a template mytiles_templates/ by default.
  • Unlike a view, the name() directive is required and should give a dotted name for the tile by convention.
  • Dictionary key access (__getitem__()) is defined to work as it does in a tile. In a standard grokked view, it will retrieve a macro from the template. In a tile, it is used as a traversal hook to set the tile id, and subsequently to look up views on the tile. See plone.tiles for details.
  • Similarly, standard grokked views have a url() method which can be used to construct a URL, possibly with query string parameters. For grokked tiles, this is replaced by a url read-only property, which returns the canonical tile URL, as per plone.tiles.
