Lorem ipsum text and image demo content for Plone

Project description


This package provides some browser view for creating demo content and demo images without reinventing functionality for every new project.


Add zopyx.ipsumplone to the eggs options of your buildout configuration, re-run buildout and restart your Plone instance.


  • @@new-site called in the context of the Zope root object or a Zope folder will create a new Plone site with a unique id.

  • @@demo-content called in the context of the a Plone site will create a set of folder for images, news items, events, files and documents.

The main purpose of the package to call the views above inside the setuphandler or profile setup step to generate example content on request. Please check the browser/ implementation to figure out API methods like createDocument(), createImage() or createNewsitem(). Subclassing the Setup view is obviously a good start for own customizations.


  • tested with Plone 5.0 and Dexterity content (use zopyx.ipsumplone 0.2.X for Archetypes-based content under Plone 4.X)
