PyAMS site management features

Project description

What is PyAMS?

PyAMS (Pyramid Application Management Suite) is a small suite of packages written for applications and content management with the Pyramid framework.

PyAMS is actually mainly used to manage web sites through content management applications (CMS, see PyAMS_content package), but many features are generic and can be used inside any kind of web application.

All PyAMS documentation is available on ReadTheDocs

What is PyAMS_site?

PyAMS_site is an extension package for Pyramid and PyAMS frameworks. It provides a small set of features related to sites, which are the base components of any web site or application.

One of the main features of PyAMS_site packages is the management of site’s generations, which is largely based on zope.generations package (but with much less features); a generation is defined when a new version of any package is requiring database updates to convert contents by adding or updating properties, or renaming classes. But unlike other frameworks, PyAMS made the choice to not automatically do this conversion, which is done using the “pyams_upgrade” console script; the zodbupdate console script can also be used in a first step when some classes need to be renamed before doing an upgrade.

PyAMS_site also provides a Pyramid’s root factory, which is used by Pyramid on application startup to initialize a new site.
