The following instructions have been tested on cloud9 ide. You may have challenges on other platforms.

##Deploy First (Start with an existing deployment)

We assume that you've followed the README or QUICKSTART instructions and have done an initial deployment using dotcloud push

##Install Developer tools The following commands will install the developer tools including zopeskel and dotcloud

easy_install pip
pip install -r requirements.txt

Activate aliases

source aliases

##Create your first package in the 'src' directory

cd src
zopeskel dexterity

when prompted name it 'dex.example' and accept all defaults (Using the name 'dex.example' will save you a bit of time since we already have the required lines commented in the add-ons.cfg file). Then return to the parent directory

cd ../

##Edit the add-ons.cfg file Add your new package to the add-ons.cfg file, it should look like this:

[buildout]
extensions += mr.developer buildout.dumppickedversions
auto-checkout = 
              dex.example
eggs += 
              dex.example
[sources]
# assumes that packages are added to the src/ directory
dex.example = fs dex.example

##Clean Deploy to dotcloud (this will wipe your dotcloud instance) This step pushes your new dex.example package to dotcloud, wipes the dotcloud instance and installs a brand new clean Plone with your package.

dotcloud push

##Deploy on existing instance (deploy without wiping) This is useful in scenarios where yo don not want to wipe the data from your dotcloud service. A common scenario is when you're making quick changes to your code.

plonepush src
plonepush add-ons.cfg
plonebuild
plonerestart

##Usage: Visit your Plone site in your web browser at http://{yourinstance}-{useraccount}.dotcloud.com/Plone and log in. Use the following credentials:

username: admin
password: admin

##Browse to the add-ons section and install

In your plone site go to Site-Setup > Add-ons and install your new package.
