plone.portlets 2.1

An extension of zope.viewlet to support dynamic portlets

Latest Version: 2.3


plone.portlets provides a generic infrastructure for managing portlets.

Portlets are a bit like viewlets, except they can be manipulated at runtime, using local components. This package is used by to provide Plone-specific portlets, but should be generic enough to work on other platforms. It should work in a “pure Zope Toolkit” environment.


2.1 (2012-07-02)

  • Avoid some test dependencies. [hannosch]
  • Graceful handling of portlets with missing implementation. [do3cc]

2.0.2 - 2011-04-21

  • Add [WouterVH]

2.0.1 - 2011-01-03

2.0 - 2010-07-16

  • Update license to GPL version 2 only. [hannosch]
  • Make it possible to rely on the __portlet_metadata__ of a portlet renderer to determine its availability. This closes [enriquepablo, hannosch]

2.0b3 - 2010-06-13

  • Use the standard libraries doctest module. [hannosch]
  • Use zope.browserpage if available. [hannosch]

2.0b2 - 2010-03-27

  • Protect the exception logging against funky portlets. In error cases even doing a repr() on the portlet might cause an infinite recursion error. [hannosch]

2.0b1 - 2010-01-25

  • Added __portlet_metadata__ attribute to portlet renderers, to make it easier for a portlet to know how it was looked up (and thus reconstruct a URL to itself, for example). [optilude]

2.0a1 - 2009-11-14

  • Avoid a variety of dependencies in favor of Zope Toolkit packages. [hannosch]
  • Added support for showing/hiding of all portlets (PLIP #9286) [igbun]

1.2 - 2009-06-19

  • Fixed ‘SyntaxError: non-keyword arg after keyword arg’ in unicode call. [maurits]
  • Fix/workaround for (UnicodeDecodeError within _coerce() caused by external data with wrong encoding). [ajung]
  • Moved test-only dependencies to a test extra requirement. [hannosch]
  • Clarified license and copyright statements. [hannosch]
  • Specify package dependencies. [hannosch]
  • Replaced direct invocations of interfaces with queryAdapter calls. The former does a suboptimal getattr call internally. [hannosch]

1.1.0 - 2008-04-20

  • Ensure the keys stored in a portlet assignment mapping are always unicode. This is necessary because an OOBTree will, once one unicode key has been added, force all keys to unicode. This can lead to unicode decode errors. Fixes [optilude]
  • Changed a type() comparison into a isinstance comparison. [hannosch]
  • PLIPs 205 and 218: Allow registering portlet types to multiple portlet manager interfaces, require portlet types to be explicitly registered for portlet manager interfaces, enable modifying registrations through GenericSetup, and restrict most default Plone portlet types to left/ right/dashboard columns. [sirgarr]
  • PLIP207: Allow custom portlet managers, i.e., allow specifying an alternative portlet manager class through GenericSetup. [sirgarr]


  • Made tests run under Zope 2.11. [hannosch]


  • Added properties to keep track of the manager name, category name and key/name in portlet assignment mappings. [optilude]


  • Adjusted some tests, so they work on both Zope 2.10 and 2.11. [hannosch]


  • Initial package structure. [zopeskel]
