megrok.resourceviewlet is a package meant to include resources using layer, context and view discriminations.


Let's import and init the necessary work environment:

>>> import grokcore.component as grok
>>> from grokcore import view, viewlet
>>> from zope.app.wsgi.testlayer import Browser

>>> browser = Browser()
>>> browser.handleErrors = False


We first declare a resource. We'll include it in our page:

>>> from fanstatic import Resource, Library
>>> myLibrary = Library('test_library', 'ftests/resources')
>>> Thing = Resource(myLibrary, 'thing.js')

This step is done by an entry point. For the testing, we do it by hand:

>>> from zope.fanstatic.zcml import create_factory
>>> from zope.component import getGlobalSiteManager
>>> from zope.publisher.interfaces.browser import IBrowserRequest
>>> from zope.interface import Interface

>>> resource_factory = create_factory(myLibrary)
>>> getGlobalSiteManager().registerAdapter(
...      resource_factory, (IBrowserRequest,), Interface, myLibrary.name)


To demonstrate our resource viewlet, we first need a page to render. This page contains a content provider named 'resources':

>>> from zope.interface import Interface

>>> class Index(view.View):
...   view.require("zope.Public")
...   view.context(Interface)
...   template = view.PageTemplate("""<html><head>
...     <tal:resources replace='provider:resources' />
...   </head></html>""")

>>> grok.testing.grok_component('index', Index)

We now register a content provider named 'resources'. It will be a ResourcesManager. An ResourcesManager is a component dedicated in rendering ResourceViewlets:

>>> from megrok.resourceviewlet import ResourcesManager

>>> class Resources(ResourcesManager):
...   viewlet.context(Interface)

>>> grok.testing.grok_component('resources', Resources)

Now, we register a ResourceViewlet, including our resource. The declaration is very straightforward:

>>> from megrok.resourceviewlet import ResourceViewlet

>>> class SomeViewlet(ResourceViewlet):
...   viewlet.context(Interface)
...   resources = [Thing]

>>> grok.testing.grok_component('viewlet', SomeViewlet)

By default, a ResourceViewlet is registered for an instance of ResourcesManager. Most of the time, a page contains only one of these content providers. If it's not the case, make sure to provide your own viewletmanager directive value.


Rendering our page should render the ResourcesManager and therefore, include our resource:

>>> browser.open('http://localhost/@@index')
>>> print browser.contents
  <script type="text/javascript"

It works ! Enjoy.
