A buildout recipe to run a zope script

Project Description

Plone Runscript Recipe


This is a buildout recipe for zope/plone which runs a script using zopectl in a zope instance.

Recipe options

The INSTANCE_HOME. This can commonly be found in the ${instance:location} buildout variables.
If you are using a zeo server then you must define this option so zopectl can connect to your database. This can commonly be found in the ${zeoserver:location} buildout variable.
The path to the script that will be run. If not specified the script name is taken form the part name with a .py suffix added and assumed to be location in ${buildout:bin-directory}.
The arguments for the script.

The script is run using the instance startup script, which is assumed to be named like the basename part of the instance-home directory.
