Plone Scholarly Journal - the content types
The Plone Scholarly Journal (PSJ) is a collection of packages to create and maintain scholarly journals using Plone.
The special abilities of PSJ are:
- High quality on-the-fly transformations of office documents using OpenOffice.org.
- Flexible metadata handling
This package contains the content types and metadata handling.
Currently, the whole thing consists of three packages:
- psj.content (this package)
- psj.policy (provides mainly office-document transformations using OpenOffice.org)
- psj.site (kind of umbrella package for the other packages).
PSJ runs on Plone 3.x with Python 2.4.
If you want to run a complete PSJ site, then you should use psj.site, which will fetch all other needed packages automatically. psj.site comes also with extended installation notes.
The whole installation process is driven by zc.buildout.
If you want to run this package alone, follow the follwing steps:
$ python2.4 bootstrap/bootstrap.py
This will create basic build scripts and directories.
This will fetch all packages needed from the internet and install it locally. Also all scripts are created by this step.
Start the server:
$ ./bin/instance fg
Now you can login on http://localhost:8080/manage. Default credentials are: username admin, password admin.
You can change the credentials in buildout.cfg.
If you want to start the server in background, do:
$ ./bin/instance start
Stop the server by pressing CTRL-C on the commandline. If you started the server in background, do:
$ ./bin/instance stop
If you want to run the tests:
Do the tests:
$ ./bin/instance test -s psj.content
Initial programming was undertaken on behalf of the “Stiftung Deutsche Geisteswissenschaftliche Institute im Ausland” (Foundation German Humanities Institutes Abroad) for the publication platform http://www.perspectivia.net.
Funding was provided by the German “Bundesministerium fuer Bildung und Forschung” (Federal Ministry of Education and Research).
The programming was coordinated by the Fafalter GmbH, Duesseldorf, Germany, namely Ruth and Bories von dem Bussche.
Many thanks to all these institutions and persons!
