Its a powerful open source CMS (Content Management System) developed in ruby on rails. Radiant 0.6.4 has just been released! This version includes a powerful extension system so developers can tailor Radiant to their specific needs. Here i gave you some instructions to deploy it on your localhost.
First install the gem by
% gem install –include-dependencies radiant
Then create a radiant project of your own by
% radiant –database [mysql|postresql|sqlite3] path/to/project
% radiant –database mysql my_radiant_application
Then you have to configure your database by edit your database.yml file like follows
# Warning: The database defined as ‘test’ will be erased and
# re-generated from your development database when you run ‘rake’.
# Do not set this db to the same as development or production.
you can use any of the database modes listed in database.yml. Then based on your database configuration
database schema should created by
% rake [environment] db:bootstrap
for eg: % rake production db:bootstrap if u r in production environment
Here u goes, start your server
% mongrel_rails start -e , where mongrel is your server (Mongrel server)
Type the http://localhost:3000/admin to login. The user name is password should be known to you because
while creating schema it asks for u the admin user name and password.
In the application you can’t see any model, controller or view files but its working
fine this is how possible is all those files are written along with the radiant gem that
u should installed before starting project. you can see those files in your local ruby gems folder.
Thats all , now you can go ahead with some other own radiant application.
