I have decided to start a blog!


Why? Because Plone allows me to do so. But also:

  • I have been reading a lot of Plone blogs lately and they have inspired me to write my own.
  • I want to interact with other Plonistas.
  • I want to get my web 2.0 on.

To that end, this post is about my build tools and how I love them. Note there are other ways to accomplish this task, for example:

I used Buildout for the first time at the Baarn UI Sprint 2007 and liked it. I’ve also used Chris McDonough’s Buildit. That may be where I end up, and there are several more to choose from, but for now I enjoy typing:

newzope test-site ProductA ProductB ProductC

and having a working instance a few seconds later with Product{A,B,C} installed. Of course this requires I have a working Zope already... and that I edit Zope’s skel/etc/zope.conf... but nothing is perfect... and old habits die hard.
