The package is able to include the following types of resources:

  • Cascading stylesheets (.css)
  • Kinetic stylesheets (.kss)
  • Javascript (.js)


The package operates with browser resources, registered individually or using the resource directory factory.

A simple example:

<configure xmlns="http://namespaces.zope.org/zope"

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 21)

Inconsistent literal block quoting.


<include package="z3c.resourceinclude" file="meta.zcml" /> <include package="z3c.resourceinclude" />

<browser:resource name="example.css" file="example.css" />

<browser:resourceInclude layer="zope.publisher.interfaces.browser.IDefaultBrowserLayer" include="example.css" />


This registration means that whenever the request provides IDefaultBrowserLayer the resource named 'example.css' will be included on the page.

To render HTML snippets that include applicable resources, a content provider is provided, see z3c/resourceinclude/provide.py. You may also use one of the viewlets:


System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 45)

Inconsistent literal block quoting.

name="resourceinclude" class="z3c.resourceinclude.viewlets.CacheOneHourViewlet" permission="zope.View" />

A convenience method is provided to require a given resource layer:

>>> from z3c.resourceinclude import include
>>> include(IMyLayer)


Resources are included in the order they're registered; that is, the order in which the ZCML-directives are processed.

Stylesheets are included before javascripts as per general recommendation. Kinetic stylesheets are included last.


When not in 'devmode', the resource collector will automatically merge resources, giving them a filename based on the contents (sha digest). This has the side effect that merged resources are set to never expire.
