ZTFY blog handling package

What is ? is a set of modules which allows easy management of a simple web site based on Zope3 application server.

It’s main goal is to be simple to use and manage.

So it’s far from being a “features full” environment, but available features currently include:
  • a simple management interface
  • sites, organized with sections and internal blogs
  • topics, made of custom elements (text or HTML paragraphs, resources and links)
  • a default front-office skin.

All these elements can be extended by registering a simple set of interfaces and adapters, to create a complete web site matching your own needs.

A few list of extensions is available in several packages, like which provides basic management of images galleries in a custom skin, or ztfy.hplskin which provides another skin.

How to use ? usage is described via doctests in ztfy/blog/doctests/README.txt
