Publisher Inventory 1.0.0 Released

Just made the first release of Publisher Inventory, a product that was
developed for a customer, and has been living in CVS for almost one
year wink.

Here’s some info, straight from README:

Publisher Inventory Product

This product was developed by RUNYAGA, LLC to serve as an Inventory
Management System (IMS) for Publishers. It has several nice features
such as:

  • TTW Configurable Vocabularies
  • Uses PostgreSQLStorage if available, fallback to AttributeStorage
    (specify connection string on portal creation)
  • Restriction of types allowed to be created at the portal root
  • Subclasses Plone Portal and registers it’s own Customization Policy
    for better branding
  • Provides a ‘DynamicFTI’, which controls which types are available
    for adding into a folderish type via a module level variable.
  • Filtering of searches, allowing to export search results to a .csv file
  • Pluggable .csv reports, just add a Script (Python) to
    publisher_reports on portal_skins
  • Uses Archetypes’s autogenerated search widgets on frontpage, as well
    as a categorized menu of ‘addable items’.

It should serve as a nice example of using advanced Archetypes
features and how to explore some CMF features as the FTI.

The product is licensed under the GPL.

Get the tarball.

  1. What’s it for?
    Hi – could you tell me what Publisher Inventory Product is useful for – what its intended use is, and the likely benefits to user/corporate management/developer. Also, perhaps, in which different application areas is it likely to be re-usable.
    avidly, David

  2. well…
    It’s all explained in the README, and quote on this post. I have no idea of where it should be useful, but at least as an example of a big Archetypes-based feature using some interesting features.
