Simple but possibly effective by using Opera browser, depends on your product.
Case 1: Your product is available immediatly once Zope starts
First start Zope, then open Opera with two windows, one will stay blank, and set the
Opera home page on the other window to any page on your Zope server (maybe create a
page that has a very large font saying ZOPE IS RUNNING). Next, right click on that
page and choose 'Reload' and 'Enable' then set the reload time for 5 seconds. Finally,
under the Window menu choose Save Window Setup. Now each time you open Opera
it will reload that URL every 5 seconds
Case 2: Your product takes longer to start
Similar as before but set Opera to a page that uses your product, you may have to add
some functionality to your product to display a static page (not knowing anything about
Once Opera displays your page, you can use the second window for your presentation or
close Opera and use another browser or interface of your choice.
Other browsers may have this feature now but using Opera I know this feature is
available. I've used it before when there have been server problems and I needed to
keep an eye on it. I set another computer near me to a WEB page on the server and set
it to reload often. For example, RedHat 9.0 and Zope 2.6.x. I finally down graded to RH
7.3.x and am running Zope 2.6.x without interuption.
