A tiles management system, easier than that uses
``__ and `Mockup`__ functionalities to build a simple UI.



- Simple UI to add/remove/edit registered tiles
- Tiles sorting with drag-and-drop (thanks to mockup)
- Tile manager is a pattern that can be included in every custom page
- **plone.layoutaware** behavior enabled for Documents
- Example *tiles_view* view available for all objects with "plone.layoutaware" behavior enabled
- Customizable available tiles list from control panel


Tiles manager works with features and its plone.layoutaware behavior, so you can use this functionality
only on Content Types with this behavior enabled.

Installing this product, a new pattern will be available: "*pat-tiles-management*", and you only need to insert a pattern-style tag into your view like this:

.. code::

<div class="pat-tiles-management" data-pat-tiles-management="managerId:myManager" />

You need to provide a **managerId** attribute, because multiple managers can be instantiated in a view, and with this, the pattern can handle the tiles stored in each manager.

Available tiles list

You can configure a list of addable tiles for this manager in Plone's control panel:

In the "Add new tile" menu you'll see this list filtered also by single tiles permission.

JS Development and bundling

If you need to develop this product's javascripts or styles, you need to compile the code
for the resource registry bundle. To do this, there are two grunt tasks.

First of all, you need to install grunt dependencies listed in package.json file in the root of this package:

.. code::

npm install

or if you prefer yarn:

.. code::

After that, you can use two different grunt tasks:

- `grunt`: the default task, that listen files changes with `watch` and re-build resources and bundles automatically
- `grunt compile`: to manually compile all resources and bundles


This product has been translated into

- Italian


Install by adding it to your buildout::



eggs =

and then running "bin/buildout"

This package is developed with mockup, so is fully compatible for Plone 5.

From 1.0.0 version, Plone 4 compatibility has been dropped, so you need to use the 0.x branch.
