ZC Buildout recipe to generate an ATContentTypes configuration file in the etc/ folder of a zope instance

Project description


This recipe generates a custom ATContentTypes configuration file and places it in the etc/ folder of your zope instance.

You can use it with a part like this:

recipe                 = plone.recipe.atcontenttypes
zope-instance-location = /home/kevin/instance/

Generally, we use this recipe in combination with a zope instance part. Here is an example base on plone.recipe.zope2instance documentation

recipe         = plone.recipe.zope2instance
zope2-location = /path/to/zope2/install
user           = admin:admin
http-address   = 8080
eggs           = ${buildout:eggs} my.package
products       = ${buildout:directory}/products
zcml           = my.package

recipe                 = plone.recipe.atcontenttypes
zope-instance-location = ${instance:location}
max-file-size          = ATImage:1mb
max-image-dimension    = ATNewsItem:640,400
pil-quality            = 95

In case you have a multi-instance setup you can define multiple instance locations and the recipe will create config files in each instance’s etc directory:

recipe                 = plone.recipe.atcontenttypes
zope-instance-location =


The path(s) where your zope instance(s) is(are) installed. If you are also using the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe (like the second example above), and you have that configured as a part called ‘instance’ prior to the atcontenttypes part, you can use ${instance:location} for this parameter.
max-file-size (default: no)

This option let you set the maximum file size (in byte, kb or mb). You can specify different file size limit, one for each content type.


max-file-size = ATImage:1mb
max-image-dimension (default: 0,0)

This option let you set the maximum image dimension (“w, h”). “0,0” means no rescaling of the original image. This option is per-content-type and its syntax is the same as above.


max-image-dimension = ATNewsItem:640,400
pil-quality (default: 90)
This option affects the quality images get saved with.
