Installation

To enable this product in a buildout-based installation:

  1. Edit your buildout.cfg and add collective.twitter.portlets to the list of eggs to install

    [buildout]
    ...
    eggs =
        collective.twitter.portlets
    
  2. You may need to extend a five.grok known good set (KGS) to make sure that you get the right versions of the packages that make up five.grok

    [buildout]
    ...
    extends =
        http://good-py.appspot.com/release/five.grok/1.2.0-1
    

After updating the configuration you need to run ''bin/buildout'', which will take care of updating your system.
