Files and Directories


A simple tutorial introducing the basics of Plone development.

Before we start writing code, I want to review some important files and directories. In the examples above, we created the hello_world directory that contains our Plone installation. We sometimes refer to it as the buildout directory. It contains the buildout.cfg file.

We also created an add-on package named example.helloworld. It contains the example directory which contains the helloworld directory. We also call the helloworld directory the product directory. Among other things, the product directory contains the browser directory. Many of the changes in our examples happen in the browser directory.
