1 Introduction
2 ------------
4 "It was the dawn of the third age of Zope. The Five project was a dream
5 given form. Its goal: to use Zope 3 technologies in Zope 2.7 by
6 creating a Zope 2 product where Zope 3 and Zope 2 could work out their
7 differences peacefully." -- Babylon 5, creatively quoted
9 "The Law of Fives states simply that: ALL THINGS HAPPEN IN FIVES, OR
10 ARE DIVISIBLE BY OR ARE MULTIPLES OF FIVE, OR ARE SOMEHOW DIRECTLY OR
11 INDIRECTLY RELATED TO FIVE.
13 THE LAW OF FIVES IS NEVER WRONG." -- Principia Discordia
15 What is Five?
16 -------------
18 The goal of five is to allow Zope 2 developers to use Zope 3
19 technology right now, inside of Zope 2. Additionally, this allows a
20 gradual evolution of Zope 2 code to Zope 3.
22 Five already makes the following Zope 3 technologies available in Zope
23 2:
25 * Zope 3 interfaces
27 * ZCML (Zope Configuration Markup Language)
29 * Adapters
31 * Zope 3 views, even for standard Zope objects
33 * layers & skins
35 * schema/forms machinery, including edit and add forms.
37 * Zope 2 security declarations in ZCML instead of in Python code.
39 Together with another product, CMFonFive, Five can integrate into CMF.
