Summary: An application server and portal toolkit for building Web sites.
The Z Object Programming Environment (Zope) is a free, Open Source[tm]
Python-based application server for building high-performance, dynamic
web sites, using a powerful and simple scripting object model and
high-performance, integrated object database.

Brian Lloyd's excellent article, An Introduction to Zope
( provides a great starting
point to understanding what Zope is and how you can use it.

This package contains Zope-core subpackage.

The Zope-core package contains the central core programs and general
extensions needed to run Zope.

This package contains subpackage Zope-ztemplates.

The Zope-ztemplates package contains a Python-based template mechanism for
creating dynamic HTML sources, with Python expressions, looping constructs,
etc. The Z Template system can be used with the Zope application server and
portal tookit, or it can be used standalone. Z Template was called
DocumentTemplate in the olden days (before Zope).

This package contains subpackage Zope-zpublisher.

Zpublisher is a Python-based object publishing mechanism that maps URLs
to an object hierarchy and handles the interface between the Web server
and the Web application, hiding many complex details.  Zpublisher is
used with the Zope application server and portal toolkit, but it can be
used standalone as well.  Zpublisher was called Bobo before Zope came along.

This package contains subpackage Zope-services

The Zope-services package contains a group of middle-level services needed
by the Zope application server and portal toolkit (but not specifically
tied to Zope). Services included are DateTime, SearchIndex and

This package contains subpackage Zope-pcgi

Persistent CGI (PCGI) is an architecture designed by Digital Creations
( for publishing Web objects as long-running
server processes in order to improve the performance of serving Web
pages.  This package is PCGI for use with the Zope application server
and portal toolkit.

It is not necessary for ZServer to actually listen for incoming HTTP
requests.  If you want Apache to do the actual listening and serving,
then you can use ZServer's PCGI component to communicate with Apache.

Please note that versions of the Apache Web server prior to 1.3 do not
have a sufficiently implemented rewrite module to provide authentication
for Zope.  You'll need to upgrade your Apache if you're using a version
prior to 1.3.
