An add-on to make patternslib patterns available within Plone 5.

Project description

An experimental add-on to make patternslib patterns available within Plone 5.

Features

Plone 5’s Mockup patterns have been relying on the Patternslib core (scanner, registry, base class etc.) for quite some time already.

Because of this it’s possible to use Patternslib patterns (as opposed to the Mockup patterns0 in Plone 5.

This package makes a selection of those patterns available in Plone 5.

This is currently in an experimental state - so use at your own risk - but everyone is invited to give it a try and report back issues.

Known Issues

There are still a few patterns that both Plone 5 and Patternslib have. They either conflict, because they use the same name or they conflict, because they attempt to do the same or similar things. For now we chose to explicitly exclude them here.

The Patternslib patterns that are currently disabled (for various reasons) are:

  • pat-colour-picker
  • pat-date-picker
  • pat-gallery
  • pat-image-crop
  • pat-legend: It conflicts with pat-autotoc
  • pat-notification
  • pat-sortable: Naming conflict with pat-sortable in Mockup.
  • pat-subform
  • pat-tabs: New, unreleased Patternslib pattern. Not aware of any conflicts.
  • pat-toggle: Naming conflict with pat-toggle in Mockup.
  • pat-tooltip: Naming conflict with pat-toggle in Mockup.
  • pat-validation

Examples

There are example browser views for four patterns in the browser directory. If all went well, you can test the following patterns by calling their browser view examples on your plone site:

  • @@pat-depends
  • @@pat-inject
  • @@pat-masonry
  • @@pat-switch

Documentation

Full documentation for end users can currently not be found in the “docs” folder, but might be in the future

Development

This package is built similarly to how the mockup sources are pulled into the Plone egg. There is a Makefile which clones patternslib. Similarly to how it is done in Plone5, Patternslib is cloned and built, but only the necessary parts of it are checked in to plone.patternslib.

Make sure that when you update Patternslib that the newer version or files are compatible with the version of pat-utils that are in Mockup/Plone 5.0.x. We are able to override the version of pat-parser, but not pat-utils, because it’s included in the plone-compiled.js bundle (“baked into the cake” so to speak). This means that we have to rely on the version of pat-utils in Mockup/Plone 5.0.x. If no new methods have been added to pat-utils in later versions of Patternslib, then it shouldn’t be an issue.

Installation

Install plone.patternslib by adding it to your buildout:

[buildout]

...

eggs =
    plone.patternslib

and then running bin/buildout

Install the plone.patternslib package into your site. It will register a patternslib resource bundle in addition to the existing plone mockup bundles.
