Introduction

Provides a viewlet (and under-the-hood machinery) for managers that allows to publish contents to social networks (only twitter ATM). Social publication can be automated by enabling it per-content.

To enable the viewlet just mark the content-type you want with collective.socialpublisher.interfaces.IPublishable. You can do it from ZMI or trough ZMCL:

<class class="Products.ATContentTypes.content.event.ATEvent">
    <implements interface="collectinve.socialpublisher.interfaces.IPublishable" />
</class>

NOTE: this is already done by the package in this alpha stage.

Twitter accounts management is done by collective.twitter.accounts.

You can provide a publisher by registeriing an utility providing collective.socialpublisher.interfaces.ISocialPublisherUtility. See collective.socialpublisher.utility for details.

To enable auto-publishing you have to enable it per-content (waiting for global configuration) and you have to create a cron the calls @@social-auto-publish. You can do it using Products.cron4plone or trough buildout like this:

[instance]
...
zope-conf-additional =
  <clock-server>
      method /plonesite/@@social-auto-publish
      period 1000
      user admin
      password admin
  </clock-server>
