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.
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
- For default installation,
mail.espaces.edu.aumust point to a valid SMTP mail service. At the time of writing, this is a
CNAMErecord in DNS that points to a relevant SMTP service for cloud operation.
