First Post


I have decided to start a blog

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

  • I have been reading a lot of lately and they have inspired me to write my own.
  • I want to interact with other Plone developers and users.
  • I want to try new technology.

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.
