A buildout recipe to update plone sites

Project description



Updating a fleet of Plone Sites can be tedious.


uncsom.recipe.ploneupdater is a buildout recipe that you can use to update plone sites. It automatizes the following tasks:

  • pack database

  • reinstall products with the quickuinstaller or portal_setup if an upgrade step is registered.

Detailed Documentation

Supported options

The recipe supports the following option:


The name of the zope instance admin. The same as defined in the user option of your zope instance. Defaults to ‘admin’

Example usage

We’ll start by creating a buildout that uses the recipe. Let’s create a freash zope instance and create 2 plone sites inside it. We will also install RichDocument and NuPlone into these sites:

>>> write(sample_buildout, 'buildout.cfg', """
... [buildout]
... parts =
...     instance
...     update-plone
... index =
... find-links =
... eggs =
...     Plone
...     Pillow
... [instance]
... recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
... user = admin:admin
... eggs = ${buildout:eggs}
... [update-plone]
... recipe = collective.recipe.updateplone
... """)
