Somewhat inspired by the goals of the ``plone.api`` initiative and based
on the experience of seeing many, many people struggle to get a "safe"
Plone development up and running due to problems with polluted system
Python interpreters, missing libraries and confusing buildouts, I have
created a script called ``plone-devstart.py``.

The idea is that you can use this to instantiate a new development
environment in a 'safe' way. It will perform some checks on your
environment to determine the likelihood of success. It then installs a
bunch of useful development tools, a basic deployment configuration, and
creates a simple (non-reusable) package where you can put your custom
Python code and templates.

For now it lives here: https://github.com/plone/plone-devstart/

It supports Plone 4.1, though I plan to add 4.2 support shortly.

You can download the one file you need here:

I've tested as much as I can, but if this is to work out for a broader
audience, we need lots of people to test. If you have a particularly
messed up environment, I'd like to hear about it. :)

Thanks for creating this.

I wanted to push a simple fix (PIL mail fail -> PIL may fail), but I have no write access.  Maybe something needs to be fixed since this started out on your own github account.


Rok, help? :-)

You just need to grant the Developers team access to the new repository. Anyone who is in the Owners team should be able to do that.
