Minimal Plone4 Buildout

Plone4 is out and it's better, faster and leaner than ever! Thanks to buildout, the installation is also very easy and just a few lines of buildout configuration are needed.

This is a minimal Plone4 buildout.cfg file which also installs PIL:

parts = instance
extends =
find-links =

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
eggs =


If you want to use a ZEO server setup, extend buildout.cfg with zeo.cfg:

extends = buildout.cfg
parts += zeoserver

recipe = plone.recipe.zeoserver

shared-blob = on
zeo-client = True


Please note that these are setups for testing. For production-setups you may have to configure it differently. For example you may want to use different ports for your servers, like:

zeo-address = 8100

http-address = 8080
zeo-address = ${zeoserver:zeo-address}


If you want to install Plone4 this way, get the minimalplone4-buildout from github:
