Install Plone

Project description

This recipe allows you to install Plone, based on the packages used for the Plone installers.

Here is an example buildout:

[buildout]
parts = plone zope2 instance
eggs =
develop =

[plone]
recipe = plone.recipe.plone

[zope2]
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2install
url = ${plone:zope2-url}

[instance]
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
zope2-location = ${zope2:location}
user = admin:admin
http-port = 8080
debug-mode = on
verbose-security = on
eggs =
    ${buildout:eggs}
    ${plone:eggs}
zcml =

products =
    ${plone:products}
    ${buildout:directory}/products

Notice how the ‘plone’ recipe is able to supply a URL for a “known good” version of Zope (you can of course choose not to use it).

The ‘instance’ recipe is configured with two parameters set by the ‘plone’ recipe:

plone:eggs – The various Plone eggs

plone:products – A directory containing the Plone Zope 2 products

Other possible options in the ‘plone’ section include:

eggs – Override the eggs used by Plone. If you specify an egg here that is
also part of the standard Plone distribution, the specified egg will override the default. For example, if you want to track svn for a particular egg, check it out to the src/ directory, add a line to ‘develop’ in buildout (e.g. “develop = src/plone.theme” to track the plone.theme package) and then add “eggs = plone.theme” to the ‘plone’ section. Alternatively, if you need to upgrade or downgrade a particular egg, you can do so with a version specification.
find-links – Specify one or more find-links for setuptools to download
eggs from. By default, this includes http://dist.plone.org and any find-links specified in the main [buildout] section.
urls – A list of URLs to download packages from, overriding those from the
installer configuration. You can use the options ‘nested-packages’ and ‘version-suffix-packages’ to give the names of download archives which contain a parent directory and the actual product in a sub directory, and products which when extracted have a directory containing the version number. See plone.recipe.distros for more information.
zope2-url – Override the Zope 2 URL from the installer (not that there is
much point in doing so).
