6Plone Migration Tool for migrating content between two Plone websites that allows to export content
7from one Plone website and import it into another one.
8
9quintagroup.transmogrifier package includes Plone blueprints for collective.transmogrifier pipelines
10that are used for exporting/importing Plone site content. So, quintagroup.transmogrifier package can
11be used as independent Plone Migration Tool by providing ways for handling content migration from one
12Plone site to another. This package overrides GenericSetup 'Content' step - so this package can be used
13 out-the-box to migrate site content.
14
15The included blueprints allow to:
16
17 * quintagroup.transmogrifierreturn queried items from the catalog
18 * create pipeline items from contents of Plone site folders
19 * walk through different GenericSetup import contexts and yield items for every folder
20 * generate and parse manifest files - listings of objects contained in some foldere in XML format
21 * migrate properties for objects that inherit from OFS.PropertyManager.PropertyManager mixin class
22 * use context sensitive components (adapters) to do needed corrections in data generated in previous sections
23 * set references for content objects
24 * migrate comments for site content
25 * extract data from Archetypes file fields
26 * apply stylesheet to some XML data stored on item.
27
28You can manage import/export procedure by configuring pipeline and appropriate blueprints in quintagroup.transmogrifier
29configlet that appears after products installation.

31Apart from standard Plone content types migration, quintagroup.transmogrifier allows to carry out migration of
32additional Plone content types. There are special packages used for such cases: these are
33quintagroup.transmogrifier.simpleblog2quills (allows blog migration from SimpleBlog to Quills) and
34quintagroup.transmogrifier.pfm2pfg (allows forms migration from PloneFromMailer to PloneFormGen).
