This package provides views for plonesocial.microblog status updates and other user activities in Plone

Project description


Plonesocial.activitystream is part of the plonesocial suite.

This package, plonesocial.activitystream, provides a building block for Plone integrators who want to create a custom social business solution in Plone.

If you’re an end-user looking for a pre-integrated solution, you should install plonesocial.suite instead.



This package is maintained by Cosent.


Plonesocial.activitystream provides a standalone @@stream view on the SiteRoot. If you have installed as well, and hit @@stream/network it will show only updates of people you’re following.

A navigation bar is provided which detects the presence of, as well as local workspaces that provide a local microblog, and displays nagivation options suitable for the context.

Plonesocial.activitystream also provides an “Activity Portal” view for the SiteRoot. The Activity Portal view renders a portletmanager viewlet in which you can add an “Activity Stream” portlet (and also a “Microblog” portlet if you installed plonesocial.microblog. This may look like a complex construct but it provides integrators with easy customization flex points, and it provides content managers with maximal control over what is rendered where, and in which sequence. Moreover by using a portlet for rendering, content managers can set various rendering options. You can re-use the viewlet, or the portlet, as you see fit using ZCML overrides. YMMV.

The core rendering component, which is used by all views, is the stream_provider content provider. Extracting the display logic to a separate content provider promotes re-use. activitystream_provider fetches plonesocial.microblog updates, if microblog is installed. It merges those with content creations and replies fetched from ZCatalog. If is installed, it will filter the activity stream by “following” subscription.

To enable loose coupling, plonesocial.activitystream does not depend on plonesocial.microblog or Instead, it probes if those components are installed and available, or not. Depending on the availability of those other plonesocial components, plonesocial.activitystream adapts its behavior.

Plonesocial.activitystream looks nicer if you also install plonesocial.theme.


An extensive roadmap for the plonesocial suite is available on github.
