First Post📌


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 Plone developers and users.

  • I want to “get my new technology on”.

Build Tools📌

To that end, this post is about my build tools. But first I’ll note these current and likely better alternatives:

I used Buildout for the first time at the Baarn UI Sprint 2007 and I’ve also used Chris McDonough’s Buildit.

There are probably even 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.
