collective.recipe.plonesite 1.9.2

A buildout recipe to create and update a plone site

Detailed Documentation

Options

General Settings

site-id
The id of the Plone site that the script will create. This will also be used to update the site once created. Default: Plone
admin-user
The id of an admin user that will be used as the Manager. Default: admin
admin-password
The password for the admin user. This is only needed when the use_vhm option is set and the root object of the site is not accessible by Anonymous.
instance
The name of the instance that will run the script. Default: instance
zeoserver
The name of the zeoserver part that should be used. This is only required if you are using a zope/zeo setup. Default: not set
container-path
The path (relative from Zope root) to the container that should hold the Plone site. Default: /
default-language
The default language of the Plone site. Default: en
use-sudo
Run the task under a different user, as specified in the appropriate instance’s buildout section. You need to configure sudo appropriately.
add-mountpoint
Adds the ZODB Mount Point at the path specified by container-path, if it doesn’t exist. Very handy when used in conjunction with collective.recipe.filestorage.

Logging

This recipe honors the log-level buildout-level config value, and the verbosity setting, overriding the running Zope instance’s eventlog level. This allows you to get more logging output when running the part, but have less verbosity when the site is actually running.

Install Products

products-initial
A list of products to quick install just after initial site creation. See above for information about the product name format [2].
profiles-initial
A list of GenericSetup profiles to run just after initial site creation. See above for information on the expected profile id format [1].
products
A list of products to quick install each time buildout is run. See above for information about the product name format [2].
profiles
A list of GenericSetup profiles to run each time buildout is run. See above for information on the expected profile id format [1].
[1](1, 2, 3) Profiles have the following format: <package_name>:<profile> (e.g. my.package:default). The profile can also be prepended with the profile- if you so choose (e.g. profile-my.package:default).
[2](1, 2) The product name is typically not the package name such as Products.MyProduct, but just the product name MyProduct. Quickest way to find out the name that is expected is to ‘inspect’ the Quickinstaller page and see what value it is passing in.

Run Scripts

pre-extras
An absolute path to a file with python code that will be evaluated before running Quickinstaller and GenericSetup profiles. Multiple files can be given. Two variables will be available to you. The app variable is the Zope root. The portal variable is the plone site as defined by the site-id option. NOTE: file path cannot contain spaces. Default: not set
post-extras
An absolute path to a file with python code that will be evaluated after running Quickinstaller and GenericSetup profiles. Multiple files can be given. Two variables will be available to you. The app variable is the Zope root. The portal variable is the plone site as defined by the site-id option. NOTE: file path cannot contain spaces. Default: not set
before-install
A system command to execute before installing Plone. You could use this to start a Supervisor daemon to launch ZEO, instead of launching ZEO directly. You can use this option in place of the zeoserver option. Default: not set
after-install
A system command to execute after installing Plone. Default: not set

Upgrading

upgrade-portal
Upgrade the site to the current version on the filesystem by running all upgrade steps for the site’s base GenericSetup profile. Requires collective.upgrade be installed. Default: false
upgrade-all-profiles
Upgrade all GenericSetup profiles installed in the site to their current versions on the filesystem by running all their upgrade steps. Requires collective.upgrade be installed. Default: false
upgrade-profiles
A list of GenericSetup profiles to run upgrade steps for each time buildout is run. Upgrades are run after profiles-initial and before profiles. See above for information on the expected profile id format [1]. Requires collective.upgrade be installed.
site-replace
Replace any existing plone site named site-id. Default: false
enabled

Option to start up the instance/zeoserver. Default: true. This can be a useful option from the command line if you do not want to start up Zope, but still want to run the complete buildout.

$ bin/buildout -Nv plonesite:enabled=false

VHM (VirtualHostMonster)

host
A hostname used in VirtualHostMonster traversal. This will set the root URL for the portal variable in any pre-extras or post-extras scripts. Default: not set
protocol
Either ‘http’ or ‘https’ for a VirtualHostMonster path. Requires the host option be set. Default: http
port
Port for the Zope site used in a VirtualHostMonster path. Requires the host option be set. Default: 80
use-vhm
Signals whether Plone site should use VirtualHostMonster or ordinary Zope traversal when generating a request. Useful for setting up instances that will not be proxied behind Apache or Nginx, such as local development. Default: True

Example

Here is an example buildout.cfg with the plonesite recipe:

[buildout]
parts =
    zope2
    instance
    zeoserver
    plonesite

[zope2]
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2install
...

[instance]
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
...
eggs =
    ...
    my.package
    my.other.package

zcml =
    ...
    my.package
    my.other.package

[zeoserver]
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2zeoserver
...

[plonesite]
recipe = collective.recipe.plonesite
site-id = test
instance = instance
zeoserver = zeoserver
# A profile with proper upgrade steps
profiles-initial = addon.package:default
profiles =
# A profile not using upgrade steps, such as a simple policy package
    my.package:default
upgrade-portal = True
upgrade-all-profiles = True
post-extras =
    ${buildout:directory}/my_script.py
pre-extras =
    ${buildout:directory}/my_other_script.py
host = www.mysite.com
protocol = https
port = 443

Example with Plone 4 content enabled

Here is another example buildout.cfg with the plone4site recipe:

[buildout]
parts =
    ...
    plone4site

[plone4site]
recipe = collective.recipe.plonesite
site-id = test
instance = instance
zeoserver = zeoserver
# Create default plone content like News, Events...
profiles-initial =
    Products.CMFPlone:plone-content
    my.package:initial
profiles =
    my.package:default
    my.other.package:default

Example with Multiple Mount Points

This uses collective.recipe.filestorage to create the mount point configuration:

[buildout]
parts =
    filestorage
    instance
    zeoserver
    plonesite1
    plonesite2

[filestorage]
recipe = collective.recipe.filestorage
parts =
    mp1
    mp2

[instance]
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
...
eggs =
    ...
    my.package
    my.other.package

zcml =
    ...
    my.package
    my.other.package

[zeoserver]
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2zeoserver
...

[plonesite1]
recipe = collective.recipe.plonesite
add-mountpoint = true
container-path = /mp1
profiles-initial = Products.CMFPlone:plone-content
site-id = portal

[plonesite2]
recipe = collective.recipe.plonesite
add-mountpoint = true
container-path = /mp2
profiles-initial = Products.CMFPlone:plone-content
site-id = portal
