Collective.easyform enables creation of custom forms using dexterity. This Plone package is similar to Products.PloneFormGen that is based on Archetypes. Dexterity is a new platform for content types in Plone and will be used instead of Archetypes in Plone 5. Easyform provides a Plone form builder through-the-web using fields, widgets, actions and validators.
Collective.easyform uses:

  • plone 4.3.2 
  • plone.dexterity >=2.2.0 (because there is function ‘export/import dexterity content type’) 
  • plone.schemaeditor >=1.3.4 
Similarly to PloneFormGen, Easyform is used to generate web forms that save or mail form input. Interface is simple and user-friendly to allow non-programmers create forms. Add easyformInstall product, rerun your Plone instance and activate Collective.easyform.
