Plomino is a ZOPE/Plone product that allows you to build business applications in a Lotus Domino-like way.
Using Plone-specific screens (nothing is done through the ZMI), users can design databases to handle documents with multiple forms and views.
Plomino supports user-defined actions, access control lists, a WYSIWYG form edition, an index, events, computed fields, and user roles.
With Lotus Domino, a user can easily design databases able to handle very different business needs (knwoledge management, project management, collaborative workplaces, etc.).
What is missing in Plone/ZOPE to handle that ? Mainly the following points:
- be able to create new structured content types, more specific than the core CMF types
- be able to build differents views to list the same contents in different ways
- be able to display content through dynamic forms
That is what Plomino aims to do.
