Products.csvreplicata (1.1.4)

by Olha Pelishok last modified 2010-03-05
Released on 2010-03-05 by Eric Brehault for Plone 3.0, Plone 3.1 under GPL - GNU General Public License available for All platforms.
Software development stage: stable
Allows to export and import AT objects contents and hierarchy.

The csvreplicata product is not just a simple CSV import/export mechanism as ArcheCSV used to be (i.e. choose a target content type, and map AT fields with CSV columns).

Csvreplicata allows to manage a Plone site (or a Plone site folder) off-line in a CSV file: the CSV file can contain different content types, and reproduce the folder/sub-folder structure.

Exported contents can be edited in the CSV file, and new contents can be created as well.

Then the resulting file can be imported back into the Plone site to update its contents.

It is a free opensource software distributed by Makina Corpus under GPL license.

The development has been originally developed for the MARS project and has been financed by the Natural Sciences Royal Institute of Belgium.

With this product, the user can export an entire folder content, or a smart folder content in a single CSV file. Contents can be modified in the CSV file (and new content can be added). And the CSV file can be imported back into the Plone site, to update its content.

 It can be useful to work offline on a simili Plone replica. It can also be useful to create content massively in Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice more quickly than using the Plone web interface.

Supported features:

  • different content types can exported/imported in a single CSV file
  • folder hierarchy is preserved (and can be modified in the CSV file)
  • ReferenceField are resolved in a human readable way (/folder/subfolder/object)
  • attached files can be exported/imported into ZIP files
  • Plone security and workflow are applied
  • Conflicts resolution
  • Schematas can be filtered
  • custom handlers can be added to manage custom AT fields
