Replacing Plone Event Location field with a Google Map

Want Plone Event contenttype to have use a Google Map?

Use this : https://dev.inigo-tech.com/svn/base/inigo.eventlocationmap/trunk/

A Five product for replacing Location field in ATEvent to a Google Map field

Installing:

You will first need to deploy Products.Maps into your site first.

checkout the product into your buildout src directory::

cd $buildoutroot/src/
svn co \
https://dev.inigo-tech.com/svn/base/inigo.eventlocationmap/trunk/ \
inigo.eventlocationmap


In buildout.cfg::


[buildout]
....
eggs =
inigo.eventlocationmap

develop =
src/inigo.eventlocationmap

....

[instance]
....
zcml = inigo.eventlocationmap


The catch?

WARNING: this will break your existing event content, you need to migrate their location field to use longitude/latitude tuple

How to migrate? I'm still figuring it out myself.
