plone template should have an option to generate skins folder and related xml
- Issue state: Rejected -> Confirmed
Ugh! I thought it did, I'm sorry. This is a problem. What I'd like
to see is the skins folder being an option to any of the 'plone'
derived templates. I'll open this back up.
I think what I must have done in the past was use the 'archetype'
template, and then wired up the skins folder using ZCML (base
and then in the profile (skins.xml):
<object name="portal_skins" default_skin="TPL Policy">
meta_type="Filesystem Directory View"
<skin-path name="TPL Policy" based-on="Sunburst Theme">
<layer name="tpl.policy" insert-after="custom"/>
(assume that your product is called tpl.policy and there's a
directory called skins/tpl.policy)
I'm pretty sure that's all you need (compared to some of the other
things you need to do to make plone work, I don't see that as that
much of a PITA).
In any case, I don't think it's too much to ask to add this as
either a option in the questions asked by all of the plone
product-related templates, or as a local command.
I will say, however, that I still believe that the lack of a skins
folder in the these templates is by design, I just can't speak as
to why. :/
