eSpaces Platform Buildout

This Buildout configuration creates a Plone-based environment for operating eSpaces, an environment for collaboration in research communities. This specific configuration works for Australian and New Zealand research communities, though the concept can easily be extended.

Quick start

Bootstrap your environment with the automated deployment configuration (powered by Vagrant for development and Salt for provisioning) located at https://github.com/espaces/espaces-deployment.

Otherwise, you can manually configure Plone itself. Install the relevant dependency packages for a default Plone 4.3.x installation on your favourite OS and run Buildout accordingly on the code in this repository:

python bootstrap.py
./bin/buildout
#Start resulting Plone installation
./bin/instance1 fg

Requirements

  • For default installation, mail.espaces.edu.au must point to a valid SMTP mail service. At the time of writing, this is a CNAME record in DNS that points to a relevant SMTP service for cloud operation.
