Dexterity is the next generation content type engine for the CMS Plone. The Plone integration is done by

Mobile first

This theme is mobile first, it means all features are working on a mobile device and are enhanced for desktop.

To achieve this there is a plonetheme.foundationdesk theme inside this one where resources are loaded by ajax and triggered by screen with (may change in the future)


Forms are all based on z3cform and widgets are all HTML5 base widgets using the addon collective.z3cform.html5widgets

If you want to stay compatible with incapable browser you must consider to add polyfills to your project. For example collective.js.webshims

Read about compatibilities:

Layout has also been improved by using more semantic HTML tags where it’s possible.

RelatedItems support ?

The widget at the moment is for desktop and need jqueryui + contenttree as javascript depednencies.

Options we have: * do not support related items for mobile and make a widget which is loaded by JS for desktop * support it using a simple “ajax search” widget without dependencies


Table are not responsive friends. There are many way to display tables on mobile but I would prefere not have table at all.

Ideas: * treat folder_contents as a mailbox and create a more NUI for this one. * use a responsive table approch (which one ?) with as few resources as possible

Upstream some of changes done in this addon

edit bar and status messages are hard coded in many templates:

  • main_template
  • dashboard

theses has been done using viewlet so changing the HTML of theses becomes really easy.

Stop to wakup image to create an image tag and know your resources:

  • logo viewlet
  • prefs_install_products_form
