plonesocial.microblog 0.5.2

Simple microblogging in Plone
plonesocial.microblog is a Plone product that's part of the plonesocial suite.

This package provides a building block for Plone integrators who want to create a custom social business solution in Plone.

If you're an end-user looking for a pre-integrated solution, you should install plonesocial.suite instead.


Plonesocial.microblog uses to store microblog status updates in an annotation on the Site Root.

This component provides only the status update form and storage. To display the stored microblog messages, use plonesocial.activitystream in combination with plonesocial.microblog, or install the full plonesocial.suite.

Plonesocial.microblog provides a microblogging solution for Plone using core content types only, without any external dependencies. It does not require an external service and can be set up and run with a normal Plone buildout configuration.

This simplicity also has its downside: this native solution will not be as scalable as a solution that uses an external service. Take a look at the jarn.xmpp.* or collective.kwetter solutions for large-scale microblogging in Plone with very many users. The performance ceiling is as yet untested.
