EEA Media Centre


develop master

Media Centre offers an API to search for media content on the website. The actual content is looked up by plugins. A plugin should register itself as a utility that provides IMediaCentrePlugin. Then media centre will find it and can ask it what media content it provides.

Getting started

In order to get media centre working there are a few things that has to be done.

  • Copy site.zcml from Five/skel to your own etc folder.

  • Create a package-includes directory in etc.

  • Put the slugs you want in package-includes and the packages will get loaded automatically

  • zopectl test (at least in 2.9.x of Zope) only checks what’s in lib/python and does not handle eggs. To test media centre:

./bin/zopectl test –test-path lib/python/eea.mediacentre/src -m testMediaCentre
