Not, really, but that's easy. In a meta.zcml somewhere, add an:

  <include package="five.grok" file="meta.zcml" />
  <include package="five.grok" />

In the package where your view is, add to the configure.zcml:

  <grok:grok package=".wheremyviewis" />

And your view will be something like:

  import five.grok

  class MyView(five.grok.View):


      def render(self):
          return u"Hello World"

That's it. After you have the same rules than in Grok for templates,
and so on.

Forms are more complex, since you need to build a mixin with Five:

   from grokcore.formlib.components import GrokForm
   from grokcore.formlib import action

   class PageForm(GrokForm, formbase.PageForm, five.grok.View):


       @action(u"Test me")
       def action_test(self, **data):
           self.status = "Tested"

Don't forget to include in the configure.zcml grokcore.formlib.
Security can be done with grokcore.security.require ...
