General tools modules for Plone.
We don't claim ultimate Plone wisdom (yet); this package is one of the parts a big monolithic classic Zope product was s´plit into.
It is part of the footing of the "Unitracc family" of Plone sites which are maintained by visaplan GmbH, Bochum, Germany.
Some modules of this package might still contain some resources (e.g. type names) which are specific to our "Unitracc family" of sites; this is likely to change in future releases.
This add-on can be seen in action at the following sites:
Modules in version 1.1.4+:
several tools for Archetypes-based content
make_collectorfunction, e.g. for address fields
Read "product" configuration, and detect development mode
Several tools for processing the request. Some need some modernization ...
Several tools for forms
Some functions, e.g.
indexesmodule (new in v1.1.4)
getSortableTitlefor title conversion.

Automatically named loggers
- a few small classes for use in doctests

A rudimentary mock module for
A few functions to support creation of ZODB catalog search queries (quite proprietary, I'm afraid; might go away in future versions)
setupmodule (since v1.1)
Functions for use in migration scripts
zcmlgenmodule (since v1.1.1)
- changes are detected, and
- development mode is active, and
- the source is in an development package.
Sorry, we don't have real user documentation yet.
Most functions are documented by doctests, anyway; it helps to understand some German.
