Paster templates for standard NiteoWeb Plone projects
Starting, deploying and maintaining Plone 4 projects made easy
zopeskel.niteoweb is collection of ZopeSkel templates to help you standardize and automate the task of starting, deploying and maintaining a new Plone project. Its particularly helpful for less experienced Plone developers as they can get a properly structured and deployed Plone 4 project in no time. A complete tutorial on how to use these templates for your own projects is at http://ploneboutique.com.
It will help you to automate and standardize:
- Starting a new Plone 4 project that includes old- and new-style python, zope page template and css overrides, collective.xdv, etc.
- Adding your own functionalities and look to Plone 4.
- Staging and deploying your Plone 4 project on Rackspace Cloud server instance running CentOS, with Nginx in front and secured with iptables firewall (only $11 per month per instance!)
- Maintaining and upgrading your Plone 4 project on the production server.
By default the Plone 4 project you create with these templates is equiped with:
- latest collective.xdv with sample rules.xml and template.html,
- .svnignore files to ignore files/folders that should not be stored inside your code repository,
- base.cfg that holds global configuration for your buildout,
- versions.cfg that pins all your eggs to specific versions to ensure repeatability,
- development.cfg that builds a development environment,
- production.cfg that builds a production environment with ZEO,
- sphinx.cfg that is used to generate documentation for your code,
- test_setup.py that shows you how to write tests for your project,
- fabfile.py with Fabric commands to automatically deploy your code and data to a Rackspace Cloud server instance running CentOS,
- Sphinx documentation for your project,
- nginx.conf template to setup the Nginx web-proxy in front of your Zope,
- basic iptables configuration to deny access on all ports but the ones you actually use,
- munin-node.conf template to setup Munin system monitor node on your production server,
- and many more smaller goodies.
