Plone Stickies

by Jonah Bossewitch last modified Feb 16, 2011 02:10 AM

PloneStickies is a product for creating content annotations on Archetype Content Types.

Project Description

The product uses the metaphor of Stickies to help guide the user interface. Stickies are created on a per user, per object basis. Stickies are connected to target objects using AT References.

The Sticky product ships with a StickiesTool which provides many convenience methods
for manipulating Stickies.

The product comes with a Sticky type which contains a text field which can be used to make free-form text annotations.

The product is not actually intended to be used out of the box. At the moment, the out of the box experience does not add much value to a website. Instead, the included stickyBox slot and the technique used to view the stickynote contents added to the 'document_actions' are meant as examples of how these features might be included in a customized Plone application.

For a better idea of how this tool was used in a live application, see the images in the included docs/screenshots directory.

In that application, Stickies were used to implement both 'Essay' responses to questions, as well as private 'Notes' on assets.
