[Zope-PTK] PTK - Putting it all together
Tue, 18 Apr 2000 11:48:40 -0500
Greetings Zope-PTKists -
I need help understanding how to make this leap:
1. I can successfully install the PTK (ie, the
installed products PTKBase and PTKDemo plus
the [no adjective] product DemoPortal) and
make a portal with them. No problem.
2. Although the PTK seems to do much of what
I want, I'm going to have to make several
mods/additions. It is completely beyond me
(at the moment) how it is intended that I
take the PTK pieces and make a portal look
and act the way that I want.
What I think I know:
o I should NOT be customizing DemoPortal [per
mailing list message from Mike to Philipp Dunkel
on 26 Feb 2000]
o I should make my own equivalent of DemoPortal
that uses PTKBase (and PTKDemo?) to do what
I need. But how?
I've looked at everything I can find (documents, HowTo's, mailing list
archives) but there is something missing for me. Maybe I could write a
HowTo if I could only figure out how PTK is intended to be used.
Note: This is not a question about understanding the smaller pieces such as
Python, HTML, OO, etc. Rather, it is about a larger understanding. I guess
my question could be restated as:
Given that I can successfully install
and run Zope/PTK/ZServer, how do I take
the PTK and make *my* site from it?
