Plock is a Plone Installer for the Pip-Loving Crowd. Plone is a Python-based CMS.
Installing Plone with Plock looks like this:
$ pip install plock $ bin/install-plone $ bin/plone fg
Plone uses Buildout to manage its installation and configuration. Plock creates a
buildout.cfg file for you that looks like this:
[buildout] extends = https://raw.github.com/pythonpackages/buildout-plone/master/latest [plone] eggs += # Add-ons go here e.g.: # Products.PloneFormGen
See https://pypi.python.org/pypi?:action=browse&show=all&c=563 for a complete list of add-ons compatible with Plone 4.3.
To install add-ons, add the desired Python package name(s) to the
eggs += parameter e.g.:
[buildout] extends = https://raw.github.com/pythonpackages/buildout-plone/master/latest [plone] eggs += Products.PloneFormGen
Stop Plone and run Buildout:
$ bin/plone fg
Install the add-on(s) in Plone via Site Setup -> Add-ons.
