Minimal layer setup for Zope3

This package provides a minimal layer setup for Zope3.


Detailed Documentation
**********************

================================
Minimal Browser Layer for Zope 3
================================

This package contains the minimal layer. This layer supports a correct set of
component registration and can be used for inheritance in custom skins.

Right now the default implementation in Zope3 has different restriction in the
traversal concept and uses to many registrations on the default layer.


``IMinimalBrowserLayer`` Interface
----------------------------------

The minimal layer is useful for build custom presentation skins without access
to ZMI menus like `zmi_views` etc. This means there is no menu item registered
if you use this layer.

This layer is NOT derived from ``IDefaultBrowserLayer``. Therefore it provides
only a minimal set of the most important public views such as
``@@absolute_url``. The following packages are accounted:

- ``zope.app.http.exception``
- ``zope.app.publication``
- ``zope.app.publisher.browser``
- ``zope.app.traversing``
- ``zope.app.traversing.browser``


Testing
-------

For testing the ``IMinimalBrowserLayer`` layer we use the testing skin defined
in the tests package which uses the ``IMinimalBrowserLayer`` layer as the only
base layer. This means, that our testing skin provides only the views defined
in the minimal package and it's testing views defined in tests.

Login as manager first:

>>> from zope.testbrowser.testing import Browser
>>> manager = Browser()
>>> manager.addHeader('Authorization', 'Basic mgr:mgrpw')

Check if we can access the page.html view which is registred in the
ftesting.zcml file with our skin:

>>> manager = Browser()
>>> manager.addHeader('Authorization', 'Basic mgr:mgrpw')
>>> skinURL = 'http://localhost/++skin++MinimalTesting'
>>> manager.open(skinURL + '/page.html')
>>> manager.url
'http://localhost/++skin++MinimalTesting/page.html'

>>> print manager.contents
<BLANKLINE>
<html>
<head>
<title>testing</title>
</head>
<body>
<BLANKLINE>
test page
<BLANKLINE>
</body>
</html>
<BLANKLINE>
<BLANKLINE>

Now check the not found page which is a exception view on the exception
``zope.publisher.interfaces.INotFound``:

>>> manager.open(skinURL + '/foobar.html')
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
httperror_seek_wrapper: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

>>> print manager.contents
<BLANKLINE>
<html>
<head>
<title>testing</title>
</head>
<body>
<div>
<br />
<br />
<h3>
The page you are trying to access is not available
</h3>
<br />
<b>
Please try the following:
</b>
<br />
<ol>
<li>
Make sure that the Web site address is spelled correctly.
</li>
<li>
<a href="javascript:history.back(1);">
Go back and try another URL.
</a>
</li>
</ol>
</div>
</body>
</html>
<BLANKLINE>
<BLANKLINE>

And check the user error page which is a view registred for
``zope.exceptions.interfaces.IUserError`` exceptions:

>>> manager.open(skinURL + '/@@usererror.html')
>>> print manager.contents
<BLANKLINE>
<html>
<head>
<title>testing</title>
</head>
<body>
<div>
<div>simply user error</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>
<BLANKLINE>
<BLANKLINE>

And check error view registred for
``zope.interface.common.interfaces.IException``:

>>> manager.open(skinURL + '/@@systemerror.html')
>>> print manager.contents
<BLANKLINE>
<html>
<head>
<title>testing</title>
</head>
<body>
<div>
<br />
<br />
<h3>A system error occurred</h3>
<br />
<b>Please contact the administrator.</b>
<a href="javascript:history.back(1);">
Go back and try another URL.
</a>
</div>
</body>
</html>
<BLANKLINE>
<BLANKLINE>

And check the ``zope.security.interfaces.IUnauthorized`` view, use a new
unregistred user (test browser) for this:

>>> unauthorized = Browser()
>>> unauthorized.open(skinURL + '/@@forbidden.html')
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
httperror_seek_wrapper: HTTP Error 401: Unauthorized

>>> print unauthorized.contents
<BLANKLINE>
<html>
<head>
<title>testing</title>
</head>
<body>
<div>
<BLANKLINE>
<h1>Unauthorized</h1>
<BLANKLINE>
<p>You are not authorized</p>
<BLANKLINE>
</div>
</body>
</html>
<BLANKLINE>
<BLANKLINE>

CHANGES
=======

1.0.2 (2010-04-18)
------------------

- **Security issue:** The traverser defined for
``IPageletBrowserLayer`` was a trusted adapter, so the security
proxy got removed from each traversed object. Thus all sub-objects
were publically accessable, too.

Making this change might BREAK your application!
That means if security is not well declared.


1.0.1 (2008-01-24)
------------------

- Bug: Improved meta-data.


1.0.0 (2008-01-21)
------------------

- Restructure: Move ``z3c.layer.minimal`` package to it's own top level
package form ``zope.layer`` to ``z3c.layer.minimal``.

- Restructure: Moved implementation from ``z3c.layer`` to
``z3c.layer.minimal``


0.2.3 (2007-11-07)
------------------

- Forward-Bug: Due to a bug in mechanize, the testbrowser throws
``httperror_seek_wrapper`` instead of ``HTTPError`` errors. Thanks to RE
normalizers, the code will now work whether the bug is fixed or not in
mechanize.


0.2.2 (2007-10-31)
------------------

- Bug: Fixed package meta-data.

- Bug: Fixed test failures due to depency updates.

- Restructure: Fixed deprecation warning for ``ZopeSecurityPolicy``.


0.2.1 (2007-??-??)
------------------

- Changes unknown.


0.2.0 (2007-??-??)
------------------

- Initial release.
