    viewing newsgroups with Zope


    Hi,
    I am trying to use a web front end to view already existing newsgroups
    on an nntp server. I want to use Zope and was wondering if there are
    any zope products out there that will do this for me. I do not need
    it to act as a mail server or anything like this. I had a quick look
    at zopeGUM but this seems to be saying that it *will* provide
    something that may do this for me. Any help/suggestions would be
    appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Joe.

    I have no idea if this would be of any use to you but thought I would pass it on. Maybe the guys doing this project can help or point you in another direction.

    I dont know of any Zope products that access news groups but python library nntplib is a good place to start
    (shamelessly stolen from python docs)
    >>> s = NNTP('news.cwi.nl')
    >>> resp, count, first, last, name = s.group('comp.lang.python')
    >>> print 'Group', name, 'has', count, 'articles, range', first, 'to', last
    Group comp.lang.python has 59 articles, range 3742 to 3803
    >>> resp, subs = s.xhdr('subject', first + '-' + last)
    >>> for id, sub in subs[-10:]: print id, sub
    ...

    I tried creating a python script in zope that used nntplib and got the following error message:

    import of "nntplib" is unauthorized

    So it looks like your best solution is to try creating a python external method.
