Products.PloneSubSkins 4.7.4

Manage Plone skins CSS, logo, and base colors dynamically from the Plone control panel

Latest Version: 4.7.5.1

This product provides a control panel to be used by subskins, a Plone product that
provides many css and color schemes to customize the site layout.
Together, the two allow quick and easy customization of the Plone skin.
If you want this functionality, you should install medealog.subskins.
It will pull this product as a dependency.
If you want to write a product similar to subskins read ahead.

PloneSubSkins allows to switch to specific CSS files handling such or such aspects of your Plone skin.

By default, this hacked version of PloneSubSkins manage the following categories:
- Base
- Top
- Navigation
- Text
- Global navigation
- Portlets
- Bottom
- Extra (multiple choices)

Another category is dedicated to manage your different base_properties files, named MySkin_colorschemes.

To use PloneSubSkin you just need to respect the following naming convention:
1 - if your skin product is named MySkin, the navigation-related CSS must be stored in a sub-folder named MySkin_navigation,
text related CCS must be in MySkin_text, etc.

It will produce the following directory structure:
/Products
        /MySkin
                /skins
                        /MySkin
                                main_template.pt
                                some.gif
                                other.pt
                                /MySkin_colorschemes
                                        bluetheme_base_properties.prop
                                        yellowtheme_base_properties.prop
                                /MySkin_navigation
                                        navYellow.css
                                        navYellow2.css
                                /MySkin_text
                                        small.css
                                        normal.css
                                        all_arial.css
                                /MySkin_globalnav
                                        globalnav.css
                                        globalnavOld.css
                                /MySkin_calendar
                                        cal1.css
                                        cal2.css
etc.

2 - In your css files, add the following line:
<dtml-with get_base_properties mapping>
before the existing line:
<dtml-with base_properties> (do not remove this)
and add the line
/* </dtml-with> */
at the end of the file

3 - Depend on this product in your metadata.xml
4 - Put a file named subskins_choices.xml in your profile directory

You can modify those categories or add your own ones by editing /Products/PloneSubSkins/AppConfig.py
