In my last project, reusing the ZMI seemed like a good idea. Maybe that was a bad choice. Do you start with an empty site.zcml? I haven't dared yet. :-)


We started mostly from scratch, with various successes and failures as we tried to reuse large-scale UI/framework. I'd say that we've generally been happier and more successful reusing lots of small components and small-scale UI bits, versus large "framework" things like the ZMI (others with whom I work, feel free to disagree ;-). I regard the "smaller zope 3" and "eliminate zope.app" movements as signs that this is a shared feeling.

Ah-ha, that's a real nugget of wisdom. The ZMI as a whole isn't ready to be reused, then. In fact, the ZMI may not make sense at all for a lot of projects. I'll keep that in mind.
