Hi all, When trying to make my own skin I run into some problems. I have read Stephan chapter of his book about creating a skin and it is quite useful but still too simple for my needs.
I want to understand some concepts involved in skin development and I haven't found any resource to read about this. I noticed that there is no skin package inside the Zope codebase and so I couldn't find any README.txt file as in other packages. So here are my questions: - What is the default view that is applied to a content object? If I have something like this in my configure.zml: <page for="mypackage.mycontenttype" name="index.html" permission="zope.View" layer="mylayer" template="index.pt"/> how do I make it the default view for objects of mycontenttype? Related question: what is the default view for the root object in a zope instance? I have seen how to configure the default skin in a configuration file inside /etc but I don't know how Zope knows what view to apply if none is provide explicitly in the URL - What are the dialog_macros, view_macros, skin_macros and friends? I know that they are ZPT macros but how are they related? Which one is taken in each view? where is this wired? I've seen the basicskin package of the Zope codebase and the file standardmacros.py but I don't understand how it works. - In my template.pt file I have defined a macro called 'page' and I just noticed that changing it to another name makes my template not being called. So I assume someone is doing something like <metal use-macro="page"> but I'm too curious to trust magic: I want to know how the internals of this mechanism work :) If anyone knows some pointers I can read to answer these questions I would be very grateful.
