Import/export and source management

Rapido applications are implemented in the /rapido folder of a Diazo theme. All the known development procedures for theming apply to Rapido development.

ZIP import/export

The Plone theming editor allows to export a Diazo theme as a ZIP file, or to import a new theme from a ZIP file.

That is the way we will import/export our Rapido applications between our sites.

Direct source editing

We might also store our Diazo themes on our server in the Plone installation folder:


That way, we can develop our Rapido applications using our usual development tools (text editor or IDE, Git, etc.).

Plone add-on

We can also create our own Plone add-on (see Plone documentation, and Plone training) and manage our Rapido applications in its theme folder.
