Zope and Objects


In Zope, a web application is built out of objects. These objects perform myriad tasks but are usually one of the following types:

  • Content objects, which hold types of data such as documents, images, and other retrievable files

  • Presentation objects, often called templates

  • Logic objects, which enable you to perform tasks with your object using a language such as Python

The concept of object orientation is often a difficult one to grasp for the uninitiated, but it's an important concept to understand to fully appreciate the powers of Zope. Everything in Zope is an object: folders, forms that you create, an instance of a file, and so on. Next you'll read perhaps the world's shortest primer on objects.
