This zc.buildout recipe installs an OS X, wxPython-based visual controller for Plone.

Typical usage in a Plone buildout:

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 5)

Literal block expected; none found.

parts= ... osxcontroller ...

[osxcontroller] recipe = plone.recipe.osxcontroller

Detailed Documentation

Example usage

We'll start by creating a buildout that uses the recipe:

>>> write('buildout.cfg',

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 30)

Inconsistent literal block quoting.

... """ ... [buildout] ... parts = controller ... ... [controller] ... recipe = plone.recipe.osxcontroller ... """)

Running the buildout gives us:

>>> print 'start', system(buildout)

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 41)

Inconsistent literal block quoting.

start... Installing controller. <BLANKLINE>

Let's look for the symlinks to our app:

>>> ls(sample_buildout)

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 48)

Inconsistent literal block quoting.
  • .installed.cfg

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 49)

Bullet list ends without a blank line; unexpected unindent.

d PloneController.app d bin - buildout.cfg d develop-eggs d eggs d parts
