Workflow management and applciation generation tool for Plone.

Our vision for uwosh.northstar is as a complete through-the-web (TTW) tool for generating workflow applications, ie. a custom content type combined with an assigned custom workflow.

Right now it adds a control panel entry WorkflowManager where you can access the workflow tool. It also adds a WorkflowAppGenerator control panel entry where you can generate your workflow app products.

Creating content types is easily done by using Dexterity. The tool will simply dump your dexterity content type. If you can not use dexterity, the tool also supports using PloneFormGen as your modeling tool in which it'll create a corresponding Archetype for the PloneFormGen form you've created.

uwosh.northstar is strictly for add-on product workflows and content types. By design, the tool cannot be used to edit default Plone workflows.

It provides all the functionality you need to manipulate workflows easily through the web, using an AJAX-powered interface and to generate the products of the content types and workflows you've created TTW.
