Hi list,

I just installed grok.repoze  and want to share my experience.

The quickstart in repoze.org [2] works fine but doesn't say anything about
creating the grok application. The tutorial in grok.zope.org [2] also seems
to be ok, but there is a detail missing.

At the end, once all the step are done (including the grokproject
--no-buildout <your-project>). One have to create a zcml file in:

and add something like:

<configure xmlns="http://namespaces.zope.org/zope"

    <include package="<your-project>" />


then go to the grok app folder and execute:

# your-sandbox/bin/python2.4 setup.py develop

I think that with this little tweaks, both tutorial will be complete. At
least, it wasn't straightforward for me to figure out.

There is another issue with grok.repoze, it comes with grok==0.11 dependecy.
So, I had to update by hand a few eggs, and then modify the requires.txt in


to be able to run grok-0.12. I have to say that, I didn't documented which
eggs I had to update. But I will reproduce the process and get a list of

Last thing: anybody aware of repoze.who how can be used in grok to tackle
the authorization issue?
