Zope Content Management Framework (CMF) README

What is the CMF?

The Zope Content Management Framework provides a set of services and content objects useful for building highly dynamic, content-oriented portal sites. As packaged, the CMF generates a site much like the site. The CMF is intended to be easily customizable, in terms of both the types of content used and the policies and services it provides.



  • The mailing list, [email protected] List information and online signup are available at: Archives of the list are at:
  • The docs/ directory contains user-oriented documentation
  • Information about future developments can be found on the Roadmap


  • The CMFDefault package is an example application, built using the API and services defined in CMFCore. You will probably want to alter it. In the first instance, refer to the source of CMFDefault for usage examples, standard idioms, etc.
  • The API is documented in the interfaces/ directory of each package.
  • Refer to the unit tests in the tests/ directory of each package for usage examples.

Known Issues
