Awesome Plone Awesome

A community-curated list of awesome Plone add-ons.

Plone is a open source CMS written in Python with a focus on functionality, customizability and security out of the box.

There are over 3000 add-ons for Plone on pypi and over 1500 repositories in the collective. If you want to know if there is already a add-on for Plone that fits your needs, searching for it on GitHub or pypi can be hard. It's hard to understand which one could be a good solution or not.

This list is intended to fill that gap, and create a shared knowledge about common products and techniques.

This list only covers add-ons that work with the latest major versions of Plone (currently 5.2 and 6) and only those that support Python 3.

Plone 6 comes with a new default frontend called Volto, which is written in React and uses plone.restapi to communicate with Plone. Volto is very extendable in itself. Checkout the awesome-volto liststars14 for add-ons to Volto.
