altered_beast

My playground for the Beast (a RoR forum software). Now makes use of Rails 2.2 and i18n.

== Altered Beast

The popular rails-based Beast forum, rewritten from the ground up with the same database and views.

  • updated for Rails 2.2
  • using rspec/model_stubbing
  • added a state machine for user logins
  • built-in multi-site support
  • spam protection from akismet/viking
  • forum authorization rules (public/private/invitation)
  • email and atom feed support
  • xml/json API (not 100% tested yet, fixing soon)
  • highline based easy console installer
  • internationalization via the I18n framework

Help desired via git:

git clone git://github.com/courtenay/altered_beast.git

=== INSTALLATION

# download altered_beast
# gem install rails 2.1.1
$ mkdir log
$ rake tmp:create
$ rake app:bootstrap
