ZC Buildout recipe for defining a Zope 3 instance

Project description

This recipe creates a Zope instance that has been extended by a collection of eggs.

The recipe takes the following options:

zope3
The name of a section providing a Zope 3 installation definition. This defaults to zope3. The section is required to have a location option giving the location of the installation. This could be a section used to install a part, like a Zope 3 checkout, or simply a section with a location option pointing to an existing install.
database
The name of a section defining a zconfig option that has a zodb section.
user
The user name and password for manager user
eggs
One or more requirements for distributions to be included.

zcml

If specified, provides the list of package ZCML files to include in the instance’s package includes and their order.

By default, the ZCML files normally included in package-includes are ommitted. To includes these, include ‘*’ in the list of includes.

Each entry is a package name with an optional include type and file name. An package name can be optionally followed by a ‘:’ and a file name within the package. The default file name is configure.zcml. The string ‘-meta’ can be included between the file name and the package name. If so, then the default file name is meta.zcml and the include will be treated as a meta include. Similarly for ‘-overrides’. For example, the include:

foo.bar

Causes the file named NNN-foo.bar-configure.zcml to be inserted into package-includes containing:

<include package=”foo.bar” file=”configure.zcml” />

where NNN is a 3-digit number computed from the order if the entry in the zcml option.

The include:

foo.bar-meta

Causes the file named NNN-foo.bar-meta.zcml to be inserted into package-includes containing:

<include package=”foo.bar” file=”meta.zcml” />

The include:

foo.bar-overrides:x.zcml

Causes the file named NNN-foo.bar-overrides.zcml to be inserted into package-includes containing:

<include package=”foo.bar” file=”x.zcml” />

To do

  • Need tests
  • Hopefully, for Zope 3.4, we’ll be able to make the instance-creation process more modular, which will allow a cleaner implementation for this recipe.
  • Support for multiple storages
  • Support for more configuration options.
