- Update scaffold’s README file. See #417.
- Fix broken multifile upload. See #425.
- Separate the default actions to a
kotti.resources.default_actionsvariable, to allows easier customization of default actions of all content types. This is a
LinkParent, you can append new
kotti.util.Linkobjects to its
kotti.util.Link. See #405.
- Add sanitizers. See
kotti.sanitizersfor details. This fixes #296.
- Added new document on how to customize the edit interface.
- Make it easier to customize default actions by separating them to a new
kotti.resources.default_actionsvariable. Before, to customize them, you’d have to change
Content.type_info.edit_links.children, now you can mutate
xlwtto their latest stable versions.
1.1.0-alpha.1 - 2015-03-19¶
Imageblob data from the database to configurable storages. To achieve this we use filedepot, a third-party library with several plugin storages already built in. See docs/developing/advanced/blobs.rst for details on what this brings. Upgrading from any version older then 1.1.0 requires you to run a migration script on your database. To run the migration, call:
$ bin/kotti-migrate <myconfig.ini> upgrade
Please note that, before running the migration, you should take the time to read the documentation and configure your desired storage scheme.
- Allow storing blob data in the database using
DBFileStorage, a database centered storage plugin for
filedepot. This storage is the default storage for blob data, unless configured otherwise.
- Added a script to migrate blob data between depot storages. See docs/developing/advanced/blobs.rst for details on how to use it.
- Simplify serving blob data by using
kotti.views.file.UploadedFileResponse, which also streams data. Please note that the default
DBStoredFilestill needs to load its entire data in memory, to benefit from this feature you should configure another default depot storage.
- Added three new test fixtures:
mock_filedepot, to be used in simple unit tests with no dependency on a database session,
filedepot, which integrates with the
no_filedepot, a fixture that can be used in developing tests for new file depot plugins - by preserving the depot configuration before and after running the test. NOTE: in order to test edit views with uploaded data in the request, you need to mixin the
- Initialize pyramid.paster.logging for custom commands defined via
kotti.util.command, to allow log message output for kotti sessions started via custom commands.
- Remove unused
- Remove deprecated
SQLAlchemyto their latest stable versions.
body‘s widget (
RichTextField) for improved usability. See #403.
1.0.0 - 2015-01-20¶
- No changes.
1.0.0-alpha.4 - 2015-01-29¶
- Added experimental Docker support. See #374.
- Allow restricting add views to specific contexts. This allows third party
developers to register new content types that are addable in specific
type of contexts, by specifying
context=SomeContentTypein their add view registration and having
type_info.addable=['SomeContentType']in the type info.
- For documents with duplicate titles that end in a number, append a counter instead of incrementing their number. Fixes #245
- Update all requirements (except alembic) to their latest respective versions.
1.0.0-alpha.3 - 2015-01-13¶
- Explicitly implement
kotti.request.Request. This allows add-on packages to use
config.add_request_method(with reify) and
config.add_request_propertywithout breaking the interfaces provided by the request. Fixes #369
1.0.0-alpha.2 - 2015-01-01¶
kotti_tinymce==0.5.1. This fixes #365.
1.0.0-alpha - 2014-12-20¶
- Add a new scaffold based on Pyramid’s
pcreate. To run the tests for the scaffold, you must invoke
--runslowoption. This is enabled by default on Travis.
kotti._resolve_dottednow return a resolved copy of the settings (instead of in place resolving as before).
- Factor out DBMS specific patches and make them available to the test fixtures.
- Add new fixtures that can also be used in add on tests:
custom_settingsdoes nothing and is meant to be overridden in add on test suites. It allows injection of arbitrary key / values into the settings dict used in tests.
unresolved_settingsis guaranteed to only contain unresolved string values (or lists therof).
settingsis now guaranteed to be fully resolved.
webtest.TestAppinstance with support for the
@usermarker. This should be used instead of browser doctests for functional tests.
- Use RTD theme for documentation.
- Use latest versions of all requirements. The only upgrade with notable
lingua(from 1.4 to 3.6.1). This completely changes lingua’s API. See docs/developing/basic/translations.rst for details on the greatly simplified new usage.
- Remove code (incl. tests) that has been marked as deprecated since (at least) Kotti 0.8.
- Revise UI to make better use of Bootstrap 3.
- Allow parameters for move-child-position views to either be in
- Don’t use Pyramid code that is marked as deprecated:
kotti.security.has_permissionto be consistent with the corresponding deprecation in Pyramid 1.5. You should now use
- Make all values in
/. This makes it consistent over all nodes (including root) and correspond to the values of
request.resource_url. As a side effect querying becomes easier. However, this might need adjustments in your code if you were expecting the old path values before. A migration step for DB upgrades is included.
0.10b1 - 2014-07-11¶
__json__method to MutationList and MutationDict.
This is to allow Pyramid’s serializer to just work.
0.10a4 - 2014-06-19¶
- Upgrade Pyramid to version 1.5.1.
0.10a3 - 2014-06-11¶
- Upgrade SQLAlchemy and alembic dependencies from 0.8.2 and 0.5.0 to 0.9.4 and 0.6.5 respectively.
- Do not flush within
Node.pathevent handlers. We would otherwise trigger object handlers with funny object states.
- Fix bug with
Node.pathwhere we attach a Node instance to a parent that has been loaded from the database, but its parents have not been loaded yet.
- Fix deprecation warnings with regard to Pyramid’s
set_request_property. Also deprecate
0.10a2 - 2014-06-05¶
Node.pathcolumn. This allows queries based on path, so it’s much easier just to find all children, grandchildren etc. of a given node:
sessionattribute to the request attributes to copy to the slot view request.
Upgrading from 0.9.2 to 0.10 requires you to run a migration script on your database. To run the migration, call:
$ bin/kotti-migrate <myconfig.ini> upgrade
Make sure you backup your database before running the migration!
0.10a1 - 2014-05-19¶
Kotti is now based on Bootstrap 3 (and therefore Deform 2).
THIS IS A BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE W.R.T. MOST TEMPLATES, INCLUDING FORM TEMPLATES! IF YOUR PROJECT EITHER HAS TEMPLATE CUSTOMIZATIONS OR DEPENDS ON ADD-ONS THINGS WILL LOOK BROKEN!
If you only use Kotti’s default UI, chances are good that your application will continue to work well unchanged. Kotti’s API is mostly unchanged and fully backward compatible though.
Rework implementation of ‘kotti.util.Link’ (‘ViewLink’) to be more flexible.
There’s now proper support for nesting ‘edit_links’, so that the special ‘action_links’ list is no longer necessary. Links now also make better use of templates for rendering, and are probably easier to customize overall.
Added compatiblity for and now require Pyramid>=1.5. #273
In tests, turned settings and setup_app into fixtures to ease overriding.
kotti_context_urlJS global variable. For more details on why this is needed see:
deletepermission needed for ‘delete’ and ‘delete_nodes’ views. The default workflow was updated in consequence. It allows to elaborate more fine grained workflows : for instance, create a role which can edit a content but not delete it.
To make existent Kotti’s instances using default workflow compatibles and avoid users that have ‘editor’ role (and so far, whom have the possibility to edit and delete the content) to not be able to delete contents, it’s needed to reset workflow with “kotti-reset-workflow <application ini file>” command.
Fix #308: Unique name constraint issue during paste of a cut node.
0.9.2 - 2013-10-15¶
- Fix #268: Convert None to colander.null in get_appstruct so that serialization doesn’t fail (needed due to recent changes in colander).
0.9.1 - 2013-09-25¶
- Allow user admins to modify user passwords.
- Require newer kotti_tinymce (source code editing was broken in 0.4).
0.9 - 2013-09-17¶
Add multi file content upload. You can now select several files from your local storage that you want to upload and chose what content nodes shall be created in your Kotti site. Currently files with MIME types of
image/*can be uploaded and be created as either
Filenodes, all other MIME types will be created as
File. In future releases (or add-on products) this can be extended with additional converters allowing for example to upload HTML files and create
Documentnodes with the content of the
titletag becoming the node’s title, the content of the
bodytag becoming the node’s body and so on.
Fix #253: Many translations weren’t included in the last release.
‘–use-fuzzy’ translations when running ‘compile_catalog’ adds back translations that were recently marked as fuzzy. (All translations that were marked as fuzzy in German were still accurate.)
Fix #252: Wrap templates where extract_messages failed with <tal:block>
Fix #249: TinyMCE translations work again.
0.9b2 - 2013-08-20¶
- Fix #251: Broken comparison of NestedMutationDict and NestedMutationList.
- Update kotti_tinymce to version 4.0.2.
- Fix bug in kotti.views.content.FileEditForm to preserve file content while editing it.
0.9b1 - 2013-06-26¶
kotti.util.ViewLink.visiblemethod for better control over whether a view link should be visible or not. This allows us to move formerly hardcoded action links defined in
TypeInfo.action_linksand thus make them configurable either globally or per content type.
kotti.security.view_permittedwill now check for
pyramid.security.view_execution_permittedwith a request method set to ‘GET’ by default. It used to check for a view that matches the current request’s method.
This fixes an issue where
kotti.util.ViewLink.permittedwould by mistake check for a ‘POST’ view when the current request was ‘POST’.
TemplateAPI.navigation_rootproperty. The latter returns the first content node in the lineage that implements
INavigationRootor the root node if
INavigationRootis not implemented by any node in the lineage. Make the
api.root. This allows third party add-ons to define content types that can reside somewhere in the content tree while still being the root for the navigation.
Move navigation related view code to new module
kotti.views.navigation. Deprecate imports from the old locations.
Remove some code that has been deprecated in 0.6 or 0.7.
A view assigned to a slot can access the slot name where its rendered.
Add missing transaction.commit() in kotti-reset-workflow.
Fix bug in kotti.views.util.render_view where local roles weren’t respected correctly.
Add helper method kotti.message.send_email for sending general emails. These emails must follow a particular structure. Look at kotti:templates/email-set-password.pt as an example.
0.9a2 - 2013-05-04¶
Fix #222: Use SQLAlchemy’s before_flush event for object events.
We were using the wrong events previously. The problem with before_insert, before_update, and before_delete was that event handlers could not reliably call Session.add, Session.delete, and change mapped relationships. But only SQLAlchemy 0.8 started emitting a warning when that was done.
Also deprecated ObjectAfterDelete because I don’t think it’s useful.
Remove the html5shim from the master templates and use the fanstatic package js.html5shiv instead.
A temporary fix for #187. Basically suppresses DetachedInstanceError.
kotti.events.subscribedecorator. See the also updated docs on that topic / module for details.
0.9a1 - 2013-03-12¶
- Fix ordering on how
include_mefunctions are loaded. This puts Kotti’s own and Kotti add-on search paths in front of deform_bootstrap’s.
- Add image thumbs with preview popovers to @@contents view.
- Add drag’n’drop ordering support to @@contents view.
- Add “toggle all” checkbox to @@contents view.
- Add contents path bar to @@contents view.
0.8 - 2013-03-12¶
- No changes.
0.8b2 - 2013-02-08¶
- Fix Kotti’s tests to no longer trigger deprecation warnings. Kotti’s funcargs need to be better documented still, see #141.
- Add a fanstatic.Group ‘tagit’ and need() it in the defered widget. This is needed to make the tags widget render correctly with a theme package enabled until the defered widget is replaced by a widget class that declares its requirements in the usual deform style.
prefsviews into class-based views. Add a little text at subsection
Securityon developer manual mentioning those views.
0.8b1 - 2012-12-30¶
- No changes
0.8a2 - 2012-12-15¶
- Remove test related dependencies on requirements.txt. So now we need to run python setup.py dev to get testing dependencies.
- Update packages versions on requirements.txt for latest working versions.
- Added a tags display in views for documents, files, folders, and images, where they show up as a horizontal list between description and body.
- Modified general search to include simple tags searching. The default search in Kotti works on a simple search term matching basis. Tags searching is added here in a simple fashion also, such that you can only search for one tag at a time, but partial matches work: searching for ‘foo’ finds content tagged ‘foo bar’. You can also search on single tags by clicking an individual tag in the tags display of an item. More sophisticated tags searching, just as for general search, is left to dedicated add-ons.
0.8a1 - 2012-11-13¶
- Make language-dependent URL normalization the default. (How to do this used to be a cookbook entry.)
- Cleanup node edit actions and use decorated view classes.
- Add contents view with actions for multiple items.
- Add children_with_permission method to ContainerMixin.
- Add UI for default_view selection.
- Deprecate ‘kotti.views.edit.generic_add’ and ‘generic_edit’. Just use class-based forms instead.
0.7.2 - 2012-10-02¶
- Improve installation instructions. Now uses tagged requirements.txt file.
- Added event request POST vars to the request for the slot viewlet.
- Added IFile and IImage interfaces to allow for file and image subclasses to reuse the same view (registrations).
0.7.1 - 2012-08-30¶
- Add deletion of users to the users management.
- Fix tag support for files and images.
- Upgrade to Twitter Bootstrap 2.1
- remove lots of CSS that is no longer needed
- fix responsive layout that was broken on some phone size screen resolutions
- Add “Site Setup” submenu / remove @@setup view.
0.7 - 2012-08-16¶
- Fix critical issue with migrations where version number would not be persisted in the Alembic versions table.
0.7rc1 - 2012-08-14¶
- No changes.
0.7a6 - 2012-08-07¶
- Fix a bug with connections in the migration script. This would
previously cause Postgres to deadlock when calling
0.7a5 - 2012-08-07¶
Add workflow support based on
repoze.workflow. A simple workflow is included in
workflow.zcmland is active by default. Use
kotti.use_workflow = 0to deactivate. The workflow support adds a drop-down that allows users with
state_changepermission to modify the workflow state.
Change the default layout
Kotti’s new default look is now even closer to the Bootstrap documentation, with the main nav bar at the very top and the edit bar right below.
Upgrade note: if you have a customized main_template and want to use the recent changes in that template, you need to swap positions of
api.render_templatecalls and remove the
search.ptcall from the main_template (it’s now called from within
nav.pt). Everything else is completely optional.
Add migrations via Alembic. A new script
kotti-migratehelps with managing database upgrades of Kotti and Kotti add-ons. Run
kotti-migrate <your.ini> upgradeto upgrade the Kotti database to the latest version.
Add-on authors should see the
kotti.migratemodule’s docstring for more details.
Document.bodysearchable (and therefore the search feature actually useful for the first time).
Add a “minify” command to compress CSS and JS resources.
To use it run:
python setup.py dev python setup.py minify
minifycommand assumes, that all resources are in
YUI compressoris used for compression and will be automatically installed when running
python setup.py dev. However, you still need a JVM on your development machine to be able to use the
Fix settings: only values for kotti* keys should be converted to unicode strings.
Fix #89: Validate email address for uniqueness when user changes it.
Fix #91: Styling of search box.
Fix #104: Make fanstatic resources completely overridable.
Enabled deferred loading on File.data column.
Upgrading from 0.6 to 0.7 requires you to run a migration script on your database. To run the migration, call:
$ bin/kotti-migrate <myconfig.ini> upgrade
Make sure you backup your database before running the migration!
Upgrading to 0.7 will initialize workfow state and permissions for all your content objects, unless you’ve overwritten
kotti-use_workflowto not use a workflow (use
0) or a custom one.
It is important that sites that have custom permissions, e.g. custom modifications to SITE_ACL, turn off workflow support prior to running the upgrade script.
0.7a4 - 2012-06-25¶
- Add minified versions JS/CSS files.
- Fix #88: logging in with email.
- Update translations.
0.7a3 - 2012-06-15¶
kotti.tinymcewhich adds plug-ins for image and file upload and content linking to the TinyMCE rich text editor.
Slot renderers have been replaced by normal views (or viewlets).
kotti.views.slots.registerhas been deprecated in favour of
kotti.views.slots.assign_slot, which works similarly, but takes a view name of a registered view instead of a function for registration.
Switch to fanstatic for static resource management.
Upgrade note: This requires changes to existing *.ini application configuration files. Concretely, you’ll need to add a
filter:fanstaticsection and a
pipeline:mainsection and rename an existing
app:Kottior the like. Take a look at Kotti’s own
development.inifor an example.
Retire the undocumented
kotti.resources.Settingclass and table.
kotti.get_settingswill now return
registry.settingsstraight, without looking for persistent overrides in the database.
Drop support for Pyramid<1.3, since we use
pyramid.response.FileResponse, and kotti_tinymce uses
Fix encoding error with non-ascii passwords.
0.7a2 - 2012-06-07¶
- Do not allow inactive users to reset their password.
0.7a1 - 2012-06-01¶
- Add a new ‘Image’ content type and image scaling, originally from
the kotti_image_gallery add-on. See
- Add search and related setting
- Add subscriber to set cache headers based on caching rules. See
also related setting
- Remove TinyMCE from the core.
- Move email templates into page templates in
kotti:templates/email-reset-password.pt. This is to make them easier to translate and customize. This deprecates
- Add a ‘edit_inhead’ slot for stuff that goes into the edit interface’s head. ‘inhead’ is no longer be used in ‘edit/master.pt’.
- For more details, see also http://danielnouri.org/notes/2012/05/28/kotti-werkpalast-sprint-wrap-up/
0.6.3 - 2012-05-08¶
- Add tag support. All content objects now have tags. They can be added in the UI using the “jQuery UI Tag-it!” widget. See https://github.com/Pylons/Kotti/pull/55 .
- Fix a bug with file download performance.
0.6.2 - 2012-04-21¶
- Links in Navigation view lead to node view. Added edit links to view the node’s edit form.
- Hitting ‘Cancel’ now returns to the context node for add/edit views
0.6.1 - 2012-03-30¶
- Added button to show/hide nodes from navigation in the order screen.
- The ‘rename’ action now strips slashes out of names. Fixes #53.
- Add Dutch translation.
- Allow translation of TinyMCE’s UI (starting with deform 0.9.5)
- Separated out testing dependencies. Run
bin/python setup.py devto install Kotti with extra dependencies for testing.
- Deprecate ‘kotti.includes’ setting. Use the standard ‘pyramid.includes’ instead.
- Setting ‘Node.__acl__’ to the empty list will now persist the empty list instead of setting ‘None’.
- Let ‘pyramid_deform’ take care of configuring deform with translation dirs and search paths.
0.6.0 - 2012-03-22¶
- Add Japanese translation.
- Enforce lowercase user names and email with registration and login.
- Moved SQLAlchemy related stuff from kotti.util into kotti.sqla.
- You can also append to ‘Node.__acl__’ now in addition to setting the attribute.
0.6.0b3 - 2012-03-17¶
- Have the automatic
polymorphic_identityfor CamelCase class names use underscores, so a class ‘MyFancyDocument’ gets a table name of ‘my_fancy_documents’ and a type of ‘my_fancy_document’.
0.6.0b2 - 2012-03-16¶
- Make the ‘item_type’ attribute of AddForm optional. Fixes #41.
kotti.util.title_to_namewill now return a name with a maximum length of 40. Fixes #31.
0.6.0b1 - 2012-03-15¶
Use declarative style instead of class mapper for SQLAlchemy resources.
Unfortunately, this change is backwards incompatible with existing content types (not with existing databases however). Updating your types to use Declarative is simple. See kotti_calendar for an example: https://github.com/dnouri/kotti_calendar/commit/509d46bd596ff338e0a88f481339882de72e49e0#diff-1
0.5.2 - 2012-03-10¶
- A new ‘Actions’ menu makes copy, paste, delete and rename of items more accessible.
- Add German translation.
- Populators no longer need to call
0.5.1 - 2012-02-27¶
- Internationalize user interface. Add Portuguese as the first translation.
- A new ‘Add’ menu in the editor toolbar allows for a more intuitive adding of items in the CMS.
Node.copy. No longer copy over local roles per default.
0.5.0 - 2012-02-15¶
- Move Kotti’s default user interface to use Twitter Bootstrap 2.
- Add a new ‘File’ content type.
- Add CSRF protection to some forms.
- Remove Kotti’s
FormControllerin favor of using
- Use plone.i18n to normalize titles to URL parts.
- Add a separate navigation screen that replaces the former intelligent breadcrumbs menu.
pyramid_beakeras the default session factory.
kotti.messages.send_set_passworda bit more flexible.
0.4.5 - 2012-01-19¶
Add ‘kotti.security.has_permission’ which may be used instead of ‘pyramid.security.has_permission’.
The difference is that Kotti’s version will set the “authorization context” to be the context that you pass to ‘has_permission’. The effect is that ‘list_groups’ will return a more correct list of local roles, i.e. the groups in the given context instead of ‘request.context’.
Add a template (‘forbidden.pt’) for when user is logged in but still getting HTTPForbidden.
0.4.4 - 2012-01-05¶
- The “Forbidden View” will no longer redirect clients that don’t accept ‘text/html’ to the login form.
- Fix bug with ‘kotti.site_title’ setting.
0.4.3 - 2011-12-22¶
- Add ‘kotti.root_factory’ setting which allows the override Kotti’s default Pyramid root factory. Also, make master templates more robust so that a minimal root with ‘__parent__’ and ‘__name__’ can be rendered.
- The ‘kotti.tests’ was factored out. Tests should now import from ‘kotti.testing’.
0.4.2 - 2011-12-20¶
- More convenient overrides for add-on packages by better use of ‘config.commit()’.
0.4.1 - 2011-12-20¶
- Modularize Kotti’s Paste App Factory ‘kotti.main’.
- Allow explicit setting of tables that Kotti creates (‘kotti.use_tables’).
0.4.0 - 2011-12-14¶
- Remove configuration variables ‘kotti.templates.*’ in favour of ‘kotti.asset_overrides’, which uses Pyramid asset specs and their overrides.
- Remove ‘TemplateAPI.__getitem__’ and instead add ‘TemplateAPI.macro’ which has a similar but less ‘special’ API.
- Factor snippets in ‘kotti/templates/snippets.pt’ out into their own templates. Use ‘api.render_template’ to render them instead of macros.
0.3.1 - 2011-12-09¶
- Add ‘keys’ method to mutation dicts (see 0.3.0).
0.3.0 - 2011-11-30¶
Replace Node.__annotations__ in favor of an extended Node.annotations.
Node.annotations will attempt to not only recognize changes to subobjects of type dict, it will also handle list objects transparently. That is, changing arbitrary JSON structures should just work with regard to calling node.annotations.changed() when the structure was changed.
0.2.10 - 2011-11-22¶
- ‘api.format_datetime’ now also accepts a timestamp in addition to datetime.
0.2.9 - 2011-11-21¶
- Remove MANIFEST.in in favour of using ‘setuptools-git’.
0.2.8 - 2011-11-21¶
- Remove ‘PasteScript’ dependency since that would result in spurious errors when installing Kotti. See http://jenkins.danielnouri.org/job/Kotti/42/TOXENV=py27/console
0.2.7 - 2011-11-20¶
- Add ‘PasteScript’ dependency.
- Fix #11 where ‘python setup.py test’ would look into a hard-coded ‘bin’ directory.
- Structural analysis documentation. (Unfinished; in ‘analysis’ directory during development. Will be moved to main docs when finished.)
0.2.6 - 2011-11-17¶
Add Node.__annotations__ convenience attribute.
Node.__annotations__ will wrap the annotations dict in such a way that both item and attribute access are possible. It’ll also record changes to dicts inside dicts and mark the parent __annotations__ attribute as dirty.
Add a welcome page.
Delete the demo added in version 0.2.4.
0.2.5 - 2011-11-14¶
- Add ‘TemplateAPI.render_template’; allow templates to be rendered conveniently from templates.
0.2.4 - 2011-11-13¶
- Adjust for Pyramid 1.2: INI file, pyramid_tm, Wsgiref server, pcreate and pserve. (MO)
- Add Kotti Demo source and documentation.
0.2.3 - 2011-10-28¶
Node.__getitem__will now also accept a tuple as key.
folder['1', '2']is the same as
folder['1']['2'], just more efficient.
Added a new cache decorator based on
0.2.2 - 2011-10-10¶
- Change the function signature of
kotti.session_factoryto include all settings from the configuration file.
0.2.1 - 2011-09-29¶
- Minor changes to events setup code to ease usage in tests.
0.2 - 2011-09-16¶
- No changes.
0.2a2 - 2011-09-05¶
- Fix templates to be compatible with Chameleon 2. Also, require Chameleon>=2.
- Require pyramid>=1.2. Also, enable pyramid_debugtoolbar for
0.2a1 - 2011-08-29¶
Improve database schema for
This change is backward incompatible in that existing content types in your code will need to subclass
Node. The example in the docs has been updated. Also, the underlying database schema has changed.
Improve user database hashing and local roles storage.
Compatibility fix for Pyramid 1.2.
