Paster templates for Zope browserlayer package

Project Description


This is a ZopeSkel template package for creating a skeleton Plone add-on package. The skeleton package installs a browserlayer and associated css and js resources.

Use this package when you want to build an add-on that adds css or js functionality without a theme. The advantage of this is that you may use the functionality with different themes.

This is a development tool. You should be familiar with Plone and buildout to use it.


Add these lines into buildout:

parts =

recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs =

And run the buildout


Creating a dexterity content package, typically done in your buildout’s src directory:

../bin/zopeskel browserlayer


Egg Directories

In order to support local commands, ZopeSkel/Paster will create Paste, PasteDeploy and PasteScript eggs inside your product. These are only needed for development. You can and should remove them from your add-on distribution.


If you hit and error like this:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: Not Found for: my.product (did you run python develop?)

when attempting to run paster addcontent, then you need to ensure that Paster knows about all the relevant eggs from your buildout.

Add ${instance:eggs} to your paster section in your buildout, thusly:

recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs =
entry-points = paster=paste.script.command:run

where instance is the name of your plone.recipe.zope2instance section. Re-run the buildout and the issue should be resolved.
