collective.portlet.colorcollection 0.3.0

Replace some code of the Plone collection portlet to add links color


Change the renderer of your Plone collection portlet, trying to force a link color using a style="color: ..." attribute.

How to use

This product is for developers. It only add a catalog column (color) and change the basic Collection Plone renderer to check for this color.

Installing this won’t add any real new colors in collection portlets (and we don’t want … normally color must came from site UI theme, not contents).

How support colors

You can:

Support for a color property
Add to your content types a new color method or property.
Support for a color @indexer

Add an indexer that return the color you want:

>>> from plone.indexer.decorator import indexer
>>> @indexer(IMyType)
>>>     def color(object, **kw):
...     return 'red'

See Custom indexing strategies on Plone documentation section.

The color format must be CSS valid. So: ‘red’, ‘#FF0000’, ‘#F00’ or ‘rgb(255,0,0)’ are all good values.

If you return a string that starts with ‘class-‘ (like ‘class-foo’), this doesn’t apply the style attribute but a class="foo" attribute.

  • Added class attribute support [fdelia]

0.2.0 (2012-11-28)

  • Fixed Plone 4 compatibility [micecchi]
  • Fixed portletRenderer customization. Now is registered with the class (Assignment) and not with the interface (ICollectionPortlet). In this way, the custom renderer is registered only for that class (base collection portlet) and not for all the portlets that implements ICollectionPortlet (for example a custom collection portlet).
