Introduction

The zope3 component registry inspector is used for inspecting adapters and utilities registered in the z3 component registry. It provides a view registred on the app level for searching and inspecting the registry.

Features

  • Searching for utilities
  • Searching for adapters
  • Searching interfaces and names using auto-complete widget
  • Open factory source file with your favourite editor (if the Zope is installed on localhost)
  • Customize file opening command
  • Access tabs with hotkeys (Ctrl+u, Ctrl+a, Ctrl+c)

Installation

Install it using buildout with Plone > 4.0:

[buildout]
...

[instance]
...
eggs +=
    collective.z3cinspector

Install it using buildout with Plone < 4.0:

[buildout]
...

[instance]
...
eggs +=
    collective.z3cinspector
zcml +=
    collective.z3cinspector

Usage

While being logged into the ZMI as a Manager user goto /@@inspect on your Zope application root via a browser. If your Zope is configured to listen on port 8080 on localhost this is:

http://localhost:8080/@@inspect

Configuration

The configuration is stored in the file ~/.collective.z3cinspector.config. The options are configurable through the @@inspect view. This way you only have to set your preferred configuration once - and it will be configured in every zope instance on your machine.

When clicking on the "open" button in the results listing, your Editor will be opened with the file containing the factory definition. You may wan't to configure how the Editor is opened. There are some pre-configured Editors: Emacs, MacVim and TextMate, the default to open the file is using the open command. The path and the line number (option) is substituted (python).

Example command:

/path/to/your/editor %(path)s -l %(line)s

JSON-API

There is a JSON api for easy integration in editors. The view @@inspector-ajax has following (traversable) methods:

adapter_names
Returns a list of adapter names.
adapter_provided_names
Returns a list of adapter provided interface names as string.
utility_names
Returns a list of utility names.
utility_provided_names
Returns a list of utility provided interface names as string.
list_components

Returns a list of components matching the criterias passed as GET or POST to the request.

Criterias:

  • adapter_name
  • adapter_provided_name
  • utility_name
  • utility_provided_name

The format can be changed by passing format in the request. Possible formats: as_dict (json), as_text.
