General tools for Plone sites

Project description

General tools modules for Plone.

We don’t claim ultimate Plone wisdom (yet); the main purpose of this package is to factor out functionality from a big monolithic product into packages.


Modules in version 1.0:

  • cfg module

    Read “product” configuration, and detect development mode

  • context module

    Several tools for processing the request. Some need some modernization …

  • functions module

    Some functions, e.g. is_uid_shaped

  • log module

    Automatically named loggers

  • setup module (since v1.1)

    Functions for use in migration scripts


The modules are documented by doctests. Full documentation for end users can be found in the “docs” folder.


This product has been translated into
