Deco on the European Plone Symposium in Sorrento

by Rob Gietema May 16, 2009

The European Plone Symposium 2009 on which a lot of attention has been given to Deco is almost over. Deco is the new page layout and rendering paradigm for Plone (most likely Plone 5).

On Wednesday I gave a talk about the progress we have made so far, showing a prototype of the layout and content editing part. Integration with the Plone UI, Dexterity Content Types and the new rendering process called Blocks was covered as well. A video of the presentation can be foundĀ  on and the slides can be found on Slideshare.

Deco Presentation

On Friday and Saturday Deco was one of the sprint topics. New features were implemented and bugs have been fixed. A complete list of all the work which has been done can be found on Open Plans. If you would like to test Deco you can find the installation instruction the Plone SVN. Feedback about usability andĀ  implementation is very much appreciated. Help implementing Deco is also greatly appreciated, just sent me an e-mail if you want to help out.

Thanks for the update. It's unfortunate it suffers from excessive here-ism.

See for some tips.
