f2w helpdesk is a Web-based helpdesk package. It allows requests to be categorised to an arbitrary level of detail using a expert-system-like question and answer method. Advice and problem-specific information can be associated with the request categories, thus building up a knowledge base to speed the resolution of frequently occurring problems. Users can also add their own tasks, thus using it as a todo list or for workflow within teams, and notes can be added to each request at any time.
Formulator is a flexible, extensible framework for the creation and validation of web forms in Zope. Web forms can be created with a web-based management interface. When a form is submitted, many common validations, such as testing for required fields or certain types of input, can be automated.
OnlineCourse is a Zope Product that allows you to implement a web based distance learning application. Main features include an online chat classroom, message board, upload of course materials from MSWord .doc files, log of student participation, and provisions for assignment entry, homework entry, and grading.
XPath Methods allows XPath queries on ParsedXML XML documents (and possibly other DOM implementations) in Zope. XPath is a relatively simple but still quite powerful query language used to address portions of XML documents. When you call an XPath Method you will retrieve a set of DOM nodes which you can then display in a Web page using DTML or ZPT, or which you can issue operations upon using, for instance, Python scripts.
Fle3 is a Web-based learning environment. More specifically, it is a server program for computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL). The Fle3 Knowledge Building tool allows groups to carry out dialogues, theory building, and debates by storing their thoughts into a shared database. While knowledge building, groups may use knowledge types (also called thinking types) to scaffold and structure their dialogues. Fle3 WebTops can be used to store items such as files and notes, organize them in folders, and share them with others. The Fle3 Jamming tool is a shared space for collaborative construction of multimedia data.
ZShellScripts extends Zope scripting by allowing developers to interface with other language interpreters. It currently supports Python, Perl, PHP, Ruby, Lisp, and Unix (Bash) scripts which can be executed from within Zope with semi-transparent access to Zope's variables and objects. It is designed to encourage people to invent new ways to deal with Zope and its object database by providing a common base infrastructure.
Archetypes is a framework for developing new content types in Plone. The power of Archetypes is first in automatically generating forms, second in providing a library of stock field types, form widgets, and field validators, third in easily integrating custom fields, widgets, and validators, and fourth in automating transformations of rich content.
Keylime for Zope is a set of generic objects to facilitate fast SQL application development. It offers the following objects, which can be used or overridden: htmlView, htmlInsert, formInsert, formUpdate, and htmlDelete. It uses Folder properties to define sqlTable, sqlKey, and sqlUniq so that the application will function using generic or overridden forms. Infinitely hierarchical SQL applications can be written very quickly. Sample apps and a Zope installation guide are included.
