AT Vocabulary Manager
A central pluggable vocabulary library for use with Archetypes based products, CMFMetadata and other Products. It supports flat, hierachical and VDEX based vocabularies.
- ATVocabularyManager offers central through the Plone management of dynamic vocabularies.
- This product is based on Archetypes and made to work with Archetypes as well as with other Products. It is intended use is within Archetypes Fields. Using it as a vocabulary provider for CMFMetadata worked out fine too.
- to use a managed vocabulary simply add the term
vocabulary = NamedVocabulary("myvocabulary")to the fields of your Archetypes Schema, import NamedVocabulary from this Product and create your vocabulary with id myvocabulary in
portal_vocabulariestool (available through Plone Site-Setup).
- ATVocabularyManager supports:
- simple flat key - value vocabularies,
- tree like hierachical vocabularies,
- IMS Vocabulary Definition Exchange Format (VDEX) aware vocabularies with XML Import and Export.
- Multilingual vocabularies. With LinguaPlone vor simple- and tree-vocabularies, native support for VDEX-vocabularies (also w/o LingauPlone).
- Vocabularies are pluggable types. ATVocabularyManager is prepared for extension with your special vocabulary type.
- Each vocabulary term needs to be an CMF aware content type. Reuse normal rich content as a vocabularies.
- ArchGenXML 1.4+ code-generator does full integration of ATVocabularyManager: via tagged value defined named vocabularies are registered transparently, VDEX-XML files are imported at install-time, stub vocabularies are created at install time and custom types are registered by just providing appropiate stereotypes.
Usage in own Archetypes Products
Home grown code
If you prefer to type your code with your fingers, just do it like in the following code-snippet:
[...] from Products.ATVocabularyManager import NamedVocabulary [...] LinesField('officetypes', widget=SelectionWidget( label='Types', ), vocabulary=NamedVocabulary("""officetype""") ), [...]
And add a vocabulary with short name
officetype to the vocabulary library
ArchGenXML fully supports ATVocabularyManager, read the Tutorial for further information.
The author offers professional support. The classical well-working community support is found at the mailing-lists and IRC-channels around Plone.
Several parts of the code was created for the ZUCCARO project. ZUCCARO (Zope-based Universally Configurable Classes for Academic Research Online) is a database framework for the Humanities developed by the Bibliotheca Hertziana, Max Planck Institute for Art History For further information: "zuccaro.biblhertz.it"http://zuccaro.biblhertz.it
