What is a grokker?

Up to Table of Contents

This FAQ applies to: Any version.

A grokker is a component that configures a class, module or instance with Grok. It uses annotations made by directives to determine the details of this confirmation. Configuration often entails the registration of a class with the Zope Component Architecture (ZCA); an adapter is for instance registered with the ZCA by what it adapts and what interface it adapts to.

You don't need to learn how to write grokkers unless you want to extend Grok itself with new configuration behavior.
