OS X specific .cfg for collective.xdv

The collective.xdv manual on tells you how to customize your buildout.cfg in order to be able to run collective.xdv on OS X. However if you are working in a team of developers where not everyone is using OS X, it’s nice to have your specific buildout hacks in a separate osx.cfg file.

Below is an OS X specific osx.cfg file that extends the original buildout.cfg with OS X specific hacks for collective.xdv.

extends = buildout.cfg
parts +=

versions = versions

lxml = 2.2.2

recipe = z3c.recipe.staticlxml
egg = lxml
force = false

Now all you need to do is run buildout with config file set as osx.cfg.

$ bin/buildout -c osx.cfg

New Plone website –

During the first month of 2010 we’ve been busy developing a new site for Erasmus students in Ljubljana – It helps Erasmus students coming to Ljubljana to easily find a room and connect with other Erasmus students already in Ljubljana.

We use custom developed content types to provide a the list of available flats/beds with an advanced search. Visitors can do a sorted search on several characteristics of a flat/bed. There is also integration with Google Maps so the system can automatically calculate distances from a selected flat to nearest faculties.
