A backport of the Plone 5 folder contents implementation.

Project description


Since version 2, this package aims to be a backport of the Plone 5 folder contents implementation.


  • better drag and drop implementation

  • Shortcuts to move items to the top or bottom of folder

  • Multi-file upload

  • shift-click selection

  • drag drop files from desktop to upload

  • change workflow

  • change tags

  • properties

  • rename

  • add menu


I’m aiming to support Plone versions 4.1 through 4.3. Each version requires that you pin a few newer versions of a few plone packages.

Plone 4.2

version pins:

[versions] = 1.1.1 = 2.1.16

Plone 4.1

version pins:

[versions] = 1.1.1 = 1.1 = 2.1.16

tus support

tus is a protocol aimed at supporting resuamble file uploads on the web.

add egg:

eggs =


eggs =

Then, settings for tus:

environment-vars =
    TUS_ENABLED true
    TUS_TMP_FILE_DIR ${buildout:directory}/var/tmp

make tus directory:

mkdir var/tmp
