Produce & Publish Lite

Produce & Publish Lite

Produce & Publish Lite is a stripped down version of the Produce & Publish platform (www.produce-and-publish.com). It implements a PDF generation functionality for the Plone content-management system (www.plone.org).

Limitations

  • supports Apache FOP 1.0 or PISA as PDF backend
  • no support for the Produce & Publish server (conversion will take place inside Plone - may block worker threads of Zope)

Requirements

  • requires Plone 4 or higher (untested with Plone 3.x)

Installation

  • add zopyx.smartprintng.lite to the eggs option of your buildout.cfg and re-run buildout (as usual)
  • read carefully the zopyx.convert2 documentation (especially the section related to the configuration of Apache FOP)

Installation of Apache using zc.buildout

You can automatically install and configure Apache FOP through your buildout configuration:

[buildout]
parts =
    ...
    fop

[instance]
...
environment-vars =
    FOP_HOME ${buildout:directory}/parts/fop


[fop]
recipe = hexagonit.recipe.download
strip-top-level-dir = true
url = http://apache.openmirror.de/xmlgraphics/fop/binaries/fop-1.0-bin.tar.gz

Usage

The module supports conversion to PDF either using the FOP converter or PISA (installed automatically). Add @@asPlainPDF to the URL of a Plone document, news item or topic in order to convert the current content to PDF. This is use the default PDF converter (Apache FOP). In order to convert the HTML content using PISA you have to use @@asPlainPDF?converter=pdf-pisa.
