csvreplicata

CSV import/export mechanism for Archetypes

Project Description

With this product, the user can export an entire folder content, or a smart folder content in a single CSV file. Contents can be modified in the CSV file (and new content can be added). And the CSV file can be imported back into the Plone site, to update its content.

 It can be useful to work offline on a simili Plone replica. It can also be useful to create content massively in Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice more quickly than using the Plone web interface.

Supported features:

  • different content types can exported/imported in a single CSV file
  • folder hierarchy is preserved (and can be modified in the CSV file)
  • ReferenceField are resolved in a human readable way (/folder/subfolder/object)
  • attached files can be exported/imported into ZIP files
  • Plone security and workflow are applied
  • Conflicts resolution
  • Schematas can be filtered
  • custom handlers can be added to manage custom AT fields
