I agree we are totally lacking At the one end we push hard for people to use
eggs -- even make the Zope 3 trunk checkout totally useless -- and on the
other hand we are providing zero documentation on how to get started.
The common answer you will get is: Look at all the SVN packages, there are
many examples. I think this is a horrible thing to say. Unfortunately there
is a big push behind using egg-based development without taking care that all
bases are covered. I think this is because most development is driven by
customer requirements these days and not by the "academic purity" (as people
called it) with which we started developing Zope 3. I guess this is a good
and a bad thing.
Here are some documents that should get you started (in order I would look at
- zc.buildout presentation slides:
- z3c.formdemo as an example of a small egg-based application:
- PEAK setuptools:
