Nate Aune: Deliverance: Plone theming without the learning curve
A talk at Plone Symposium East 2009. Track A, 3pm, May 29.
If you've seen the new plone.org site, you'll notice that it has a beautiful new design. What you probably don't realize is that the design is not implemented as a Plone theme product, but as a normal set of HTML/CSS files. A piece of middleware software called Deliverance sits in between Plone and the browser and does the translation of Plone's HTML into themed HTML.
In this session, we will show you how with Deliverance and a mapping rules file, you can use any HTML/CSS design to theme a Plone site, without modifying any of the original HTML or CSS files.
