It is simply to use, needs no desktop application, everything is done through the web by uploading an "excel file" and configure its visualisations.

See also initial project wiki page for the reasoning behind this project.

To install eea.daviz into the global Python environment (or a workingenv), using a traditional Zope 2 instance, you can do this:

- When you're reading this you have probably already run easy_install eea.daviz. Find out how to install setuptools (and EasyInstall) here:

- If you are using Zope 2.9 (not 2.10), get pythonproducts and install it via:

 python install --home /path/to/instance

 into your Zope instance.

- Create a file called eea.daviz-configure.zcml in the /path/to/instance/etc/package-includes directory. The file should only contain this:

 < include package="eea.daviz" / >

Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to manage your project, you can do this:

- Add eea.daviz to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

 eggs = eea.daviz

- Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

 recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
 zcml = eea.daviz

- Re-run buildout, e.g. with:


You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package's configure.zcml file.
