A Web Services API for Plone.

Project description

Web Services API for Plone (wsapi4plone.core)

A Plone product that provides an XML-RPC API to Plone content and operations. In other words, a Plone web services API. One of the main goals is to provide a slim, versatile and extensive way to create, read, update and delete (CRUD) Plone content. The secondary goal is to provide an interface on which Plone sites can communicate with one another.

There are five categories that the wsapi4plone could be useful for: Cross Site Communication, Desktop Applications, Skinning/Theming, Batch Processing and Site Migration. The primary focus of wsapi4plone thus far is on Cross Site Communication (Plone to Plone communication), Desktop Applications (Desktop Authoring) and Site Migration (Plone Import/Export).
