These sites are perfect use cases for Radiant, since they’re small,
focused sites. Radiant was great because there was so little overhead
I could start posting content really quickly and focus on the design.
These sites used to be based on Wordpress and a custom Rails app, but

much custom code.
FYI, these sites are all hosted by eApps, using Mongrel and
mod_proxy. Performance so far seems decent, though much better than
when I was using FCGI. I switched to mongrel only because FCGI
stopped working once rails 1.2 was installed, but this setup is a lot
The only extension I had to write myself simply housed some custom
utility tags I needed. Now that I have some time to focus on my own
site, I’ll setup a public SVN repository and send out the URL when
Anyway, thanks again. Radiant’s been really great to work with.
