Project Description

This product is the result of a summer of code 2008 project. As you can see, it's still in development, so there are just a couple of configurations and forms, but not a working product yet.

 This is the abstract for this project.

Want to read about how this product is developed?

Take a look to the summer of code student blog here!

Want to test this product?

First of all, create a new plone3 buildout. This product does not have releases yet, please don't use it in a real site.

In the just created buildout, go to the src folder, and there checkout plone.app.batch:

svn co https://svn.plone.org/svn/collective/plone.app.batch/trunk plone.app.batch

In the following snippets pay attention to the bold lines. In buildout.cfg, add plone.app.batch under eggs and development in the [buildout] part

# Add additional eggs here
# elementtree is required by Plone
eggs =
    elementtree
    plone.app.batch

# Reference any eggs you are developing here, one per line
# e.g.: develop = src/my.package
develop =
    src/plone.app.batch

 

As plone.app.batch depends on plone.z3cform, we need to do some configurations in order to have it working fine.
You will need to take a look to the Using "fake eggs" section of the plone.z3cform howto.

Finally, and under zcml in the [instance] part:

# If you want to register ZCML slugs for any packages, list them here.
# e.g. zcml = my.package my.other.package
zcml =
    plone.app.batch

After running buildout again you should have plone.app.batch. Go to portal_quickinstaller (or site setup -> add-on products) and install Plone App Batch.
