Re: [Zope] expiring dtml documents

2000-11-21 Thread wade naveja

this is great!  i'll give this - or something similar - a try in the near
future.

in know that zope has a reputation for less than cohesive documentation,
but can someone point me in the direction of some zope api documentation?

 Document traversal is a simple recursive Python function - with one call to 
 objectValues on a folder you can extract all documents (and iterate over them, 
 check their creation date, remove them if necessary); with a second call to 
 objectValues you get all subfolders and recurse into them.
 
 objectValues matches on meta type, which is 'Folder' for a folder, and 'DTML 
 Method' for a DTML method. So you'd get something like:
 
 def expire(folder):
   for i in self.objectItems('DTML Method'):
   id = i[0]; value = i[1]
   if value.bobobase_modification_time()  """now minus two weeks""":
   # remove i. Maybe tricky because you're iterating
   # and removing from a collection. check. 
   folder.manage_delObjects(id)
   for i in folder.objectValues('Folder'):
   expire(i)
 
 Add this as a Python method (or similar) to the top-level folder where you 
 want to expire, and kicking it off is as simple as a HTTP GET from a cron job 
 (I think there's a job scheduler for Zope as well, should make it even easier).
 
 Disclaimer: untested, untested, and I never tried this out.

The ZQR (Zope Quick Reference; search on zope.org or zdp.zope.org)
or press the help button in your Zope 2.2.2 management screens.

You find them with "ZopeFind" (- built-in API documentation),
and delete them with "manage_delObjects" (- built-in API documentation)
(you may need nested "ZopeFind"s as "manage_delObjects" is a folder
method).

You can automate this be an external script (- HowTo on zope.org).

I'd make a cron job that kicks off a bit of code inside Zope every night; let
the code walk the tree and expire old documents. 

With ZEO you should be able to do this directly from a Python script.
