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 them): - zc.buildout presentation slides: http://svn.zope.org/zc.buildout/trunk/doc/tutorial.txt?rev=76281&view=auto - z3c.formdemo as an example of a small egg-based application: http://svn.zope.org/z3c.formdemo/trunk/?rev=76281 - PEAK setuptools: http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/setuptools I hope this helps!
