CMFFSContent - Put CMF content onto the file system

If you are looking for a way to manage content on the file system in order to take advantage of better editors, source control systems and other utilities you might be interested in CMFFSContent.

CMFFSContent represents a content-ish equivalent to the CMF Skins mechanism. You can register directories that provide filesystem content and file extensions that should be recognized as one of the content types available (FSFile, FSImage, FSDocument) from your code. You can also derive your own FS-based content types and plug them into the machinery.

A specific use case would be a "brochure" site that does not offer membership or member-contributed content, but a seldom-changing set of pages that need to be tightly controlled. Case in point: My company page at, which serves CMFFSContent only. Another suitable candidate would be a site that does have members and member-contributed content, but a specific area for centrally-maintained information, such as a canonical set of documentation pages.
