== Welcome to Radiant

Radiant is a no-fluff, open source content management system designed for small teams. It is similar to Textpattern or MovableType, but is a general purpose content management system (not just a blogging engine).

Radiant features:

  • An elegant user interface
  • The ability to arrange pages in a hierarchy
  • Flexible templating with layouts, snippets, page parts, and a custom tagging language (Radius: http://radius.rubyforge.org)
  • A simple user management/permissions system
  • Support for Markdown and Textile as well as traditional HTML (it's easy to create other filters)
  • An advanced plugin system
  • Operates in two modes: dev and production depending on the URL
  • A caching system which expires pages every 5 minutes
  • Built using Ruby on Rails
  • And much more...

== License

Radiant is released under the MIT license and is copyright (c) 2006-2009 John W. Long and Sean Cribbs. A copy of the MIT license can be found in the LICENSE file.

== Installation and Setup

Radiant is a traditional Ruby on Rails application, meaning that you can configure and run it the way you would a normal Rails application.

See the INSTALL file for more details.

== Installation of a Prerelease

As Radiant nears newer releases, you can experiment with any prerelease version.

Install the prerelease gem with the following command:

    $ rake radiant:update

  2. Migrate the database:

    $ rake production db:migrate

  3. Restart the web server
