A simple API, built for humans wishing to develop with Plone.

The intention is

  • to cover as much as possible the tasks carried out by a Plone developer
  • to provide clear API methods for Plone functionality which may be confusing or difficult to access,
  • keeping everything in one place,
  • staying introspectable and discoverable, important aspects of being Pythonic.


plone.api documentation is part of the official Plone documentation.

plone.api comes with cookbook-like documentation and step-by-step instructions for doing common development tasks in Plone. Recipes try to assume the user does not have extensive knowledge about Plone internals.
