CPS lays a (big) egg


Fri 16 December 2005 By Stefane Fermigier

I'm experimenting with eggification of CPS, trying to have support in
place for the upcoming CPS 3.4.0 release. I already have something basic
working, here is how to test it:



  1. Create a fresh Zope 2.8.4 instance (with Python 2.4).

  2. Download the Basket product from http://www.plope.com/software/Basket/Basket
    (I have tested with version 0.2)

  3. Download the CPS egg from http://www.cps-project.org/static/eggs/

  4. Create a lib/python directory in your instance, and put the egg
    there

  5. Start Zope and play with CPS




Remarks:


  1. If it doesn't work, you may checkout CPS3 from SVN from http://svn.nuxeo.org/pub/CPS3/trunk
    and, type 'make' then 'make egg' and hack the setup.py until your egg is
    working (well that's how I did it anyway). Then send me the patch or commit
    your changes if you have SVN access.


  2. The big egg will be broken into smaller eggs. I fact, that is the main
    reasons to have eggs in the first place, because currently the installation
    procedure is not simpler that with the normal tarball.


  3. I hope the Basket product will be integrated soon into Zope, though I
    understand it's already too late for Zope 2.9.


BTW: kudos to chrism for the Basket
product!
