Zope Dublin Core implementation

Project description

zope.dublincore Documentation Status Latest release Supported Python versions Code Coverage

This package provides a Dublin Core support for Zope-based web applications. This includes:

  • an IZopeDublinCore interface definition that can be implemented by objects directly or via an adapter to support DublinCore metadata.

  • an IZopeDublinCore adapter for annotatable objects (objects providing IAnnotatable from zope.annotation).

  • a partial adapter for objects that already implement some of the IZopeDublinCore API,

  • a “Metadata” browser page (which by default appears in the ZMI),

  • subscribers to various object lifecycle events that automatically set the created and modified date and some other metadata.

  • Add missing test dependency on zope.configuration and missing dependency of security.zcml on’s meta.zcml.

3.8.0 (2010-09-14)

  • Register the annotators also for (object, event), so copy-pasting a folder, changes the dublin core data of the contained objects, too. The changed annotators are the following:

    • zope.dublincore.creatorannotator.CreatorAnnotator

3.6.0 (2009-12-02)

  • Remove the marker interface IZopeDublinCoreAnnotatable which doesn’t seem to be used.

  • Add missing dependencies.

  • Get rid of any testing dependencies beyond zope.testing.

  • Include browser ZCML configuration only if zope.browserpage is installed.
