Project description


Provides a maps content type to be added to articles

The following features for raptus.article are provided by this package:


  • Map - add google maps in an article.

  • Marker - add markers in a map.


  • Maps (List of maps contained in the article over the whole width.)

  • Maps left (List of maps contained in the article on the left side.)

  • Maps right (List of maps contained in the article on the right side.)


  • raptus.googlemaps

  • raptus.article.core


To install raptus.article.maps into your Plone instance, locate the file buildout.cfg in the root of your Plone instance directory on the file system, and open it in a text editor.

Add the actual raptus.article.maps add-on to the “eggs” section of buildout.cfg. Look for the section that looks like this:

eggs =

This section might have additional lines if you have other add-ons already installed. Just add the raptus.article.maps on a separate line, like this:

eggs =

Note that you have to run buildout like this:

$ bin/buildout

Then go to the “Add-ons” control panel in Plone as an administrator, and install or reinstall the “raptus.article.default” product.

Note that if you do not use the raptus.article.default package you have to include the zcml of raptus.article.maps either by adding it to the zcml list in your buildout or by including it in another package’s configure.zcml.


Add map

You may now add maps in your article. Click the “Add new” menu and select “Map” in the pull down menu. You get the standard plone form to add your map.


Navigate to the “Components” tab of your article, select the map component and press “save and view”. Note that at least one map has to be contained in the article in which this component is active.

Developer Manual

Note: You find a developer manual for raptus.article at raptus.article.core. Please have look there if you need more information.
