Get Plone Themeeditor Up and Running in 15 minutes or less

Assuming you start with a working buildout (I recommend downloading the unified installer to have this setup for you)

Steps to get an instance of Plone Themeeditor up and running quickly:
  1. If you don't have an instance of Plone yet, download and Install Unified Installer
  2. Edit your buildout.cfg so that is in the eggs and zcml and zope.schema is pinned to 3.6.0 (see the snippet below). Then rerun buildout (bin/buildout)
*note: the zcml slug is needed, even though has an autoinclude in its (still trying to figure why).

eggs =

zcml =

zope.schema = 3.6.0
