Grok views by default have access to a "static" directory for resources.
They're a special kind of the more general DirectoryResource feature of

Since the resource "static" is always registered for the IDefaultBrowser
layer and I wanted to be able to skin resources too (in some case
leading to hard to debug error messages) I thought it would be nice to
have the more generic DirectoryResource feature available in Grok too.

I'm working on implementing the more general 'DirectoryResource' on a
branch of grokcore.view:


I still need to add functional tests though, esp. concerning skinning.


1) Do people feel this is useful to intergrate in grokcore.view?
2) Could someone have a quick look at the implementation?

kind regards,
