plone.formwidget.recurrence 1.2.1

Recurrence widgets for Plone

Latest Version: 2.1.2


The plone.formwidget.recurrence package provides an Archetype and a z3cform widget for recurrence.

The main GUI work is done with the jquery.recurrenceinput.js widget from .

This widget also provides a simple textarea where a RFC 5545 compliant recurrence rule can be entered, if javascript is not available.

The resulting value of the widget is a RFC5445 compliant recurrence rule string, ready to be used with python-dateutil’s rrulestr.


You need to add plone.formwidget.recurrence to either your buildout, or your product requirements. In this addition you should specify if you want the Archetypes or the z3c.form widget, or both. For example:

eggs += plone.formwidget.recurrence[archetypes]


eggs += plone.formwidget.recurrence[z3cform]




  • Better test coverage.
