Collective.ZodbBrowser is a web application to browse, inspect and introspect Zope's zodb objects. It is inspired on smalltalk's class browser and zodbbrowsers for zope3.

There is a demo video available at YouTube's menttes channel.

Using ZodbBrowser with your buildout

If you already have a buildout for Plone3 or Plone4 running, edit buildout.cfg to add collective.zodbbrowser to eggs and zcml sections at buildout and instance parts respectively.

eggs = collective.zodbbrowser

Autoinclude is automatically configured to work in Plone but if you are using any other systems, make sure to add a zcml slug:

zcml = collective.zodbbrowser

Then run bin/buildout to make the changes effective.
