  • In products list, show which sites have a specific product installed and let to manage install/upgrade/uninstall profiles for each site.


Install redturtle.lookup by adding it to your buildout:



eggs =

and then running bin/buildout

How to use

You simply need to go to your ZMI root (for example: http://localhost:8080).


There are two main parts:

  • api

  • app


Api folder is the folder where there are some api endpoints called from the frontend view to manage sites and products.


App folder contains a React app bootstrapped with create-react-app.

The app is bult with sematic-ui framework.

To develop, you need to start a Plone site in background: you can use the buildout in this package, or the instance that you want.

In package.json there is a proxy set for 8080 port, so if your instance runs on another port, you need to change that value.

The first time that you develop react app, you need to install its dependencies:


Then you need to run the dev server:

yarn start

To build a new version of the app:

yarn build

The new build will be automatically seen in the Plone view.
