To clarify further. Darryl, that is to say, I, have created a branch
(grok/branches/darrylcousins-branch) in which I'm working towards
duplicating z3c.formdemo as a grokked demo package.

I'm all over the place in there. My starting point has to begin getting
my head around the z3c patterns of templates/layouts/viewlets/layers
which the formdemo uses. Although I began with making changes to
src/grok I've rejected that in favour of megrok packages. The branch has


to come will be megrok.pagelet (...) and finally megrok.formdemo.

Now that martian is in the trunk (thanks Martijn) I'll merge
trunk/src/grok back into my branch/src/grok today so that I am working
with the trunk grok. Then if this all comes to fruition I'll separate
out the megrok packages (if necessary into a different namespace
altogether, ie not megrok, depending on the agreement of the community).

My method is to look at z3c zcml directives and come up with a megrok
package to match (more or less). So, for example:

z3c:template is megrok.template.TemplateFactory used by
z3c:layout is megrok.template.LayoutFactory used by

In the formdemo views is a lot of repeated boilerplate code that I hope
to thin out with the megrok packages as well as throwing out the zcml.

I'm not sure as yet where I am to go with z3c.form and z3c.formui
because I haven't got there yet.

I'll keep you all posted when I think it is worth checking out.

Best regards,
