Radiant Edge Compatibility


#1

Today I’ve committed some fixes that improve Radiant’s 1.8.7
compatibility and make the specs compatible with RSpec 1.1.12. Check
out edge and enjoy! I suspect we’ll have another 0.7.0 release
candidate (or maybe even a release) soon.

I’m nearly completely lost when trying to build something using Radiant
because I don’t understand the tags like <r:content />, what they are
for
and why we have to use them.

Can anyone point me to another source of information, because the
documentation is so sparse.

My installation is working fine.

Install Help
script/extension install help
http://ext.radiantcms.org/extensions/5-help
http://github.com/saturnflyer/radiant-help-extension/tree/master
It provides help documentation in the Radiant interface, and some in
the help/help_extension.rb file

And read the Wiki
http://wiki.radiantcms.org/Summer_Reboot
See section 3 “Writing your Own Extension”

Radiant parses the content and finds things like <r:whatever …> and
does something with them.
The Help extension provides a list of all tags that you have installed
and on what types of pages they may be used
Just install it and go to http://yourserver/admin/role_help/developer

Not sure why. Github seems to have connection problems every once in a
while.
Could you download it?

Thanks Jim.

I tried to obtain the repository but it didn’t work:

git clone git://github.com/saturnflyer/radiant-help-extension.git

There is no install task for Help. Just untar it, drop it in vendor/
extensions and restart Radiant


#7

Nope, even restarted the web server and nothing. When I did try to use
Rake something was looking for mysql.sock in the wrong location.

Got the tarball but I’m starting to think I’m just in over my head. I’m
not even sure how to launch the install task for this using rake.

It’s from my site, but does this help at all:
http://www.onghu.com/radiant_summer/radiant_intro_1.html

It does briefly touch on how content is laid out in Radiant and where
Radius tags come in.

Cheers,

So there is no new tab in the interface reading “Help”?
What rake command were you trying?


#11

No, no new tab. Was I supposed to rename the extension directory? I
tried renaming it to saturnflyer but that didn’t work so I deleted that
and went back to the original from the tarball.

rake production db:migrate:extensions

Could not load extension from file:
saturnflyer-radiant-help-extension-f70e5af5365813665dce5bd5f58a53d450da2e89_extension.
#<NameError:
“Saturnflyer-radiant-help-extension-f70e5af5365813665dce5bd5f58a53d450da2e89Extension”
is not a valid constant name!>

Ah. Sorry. If “script/extension install help” worked, it would have
done that.

rename it to “help”
You do not need to migrate after that. Just restart.

Most extensions seem to follow the convention that they are named
radiant-extension_name-extension on github. You’d just want to take
extension_name as the directory name.

There is a series of articles about Radius on the wiki. It is
incomplete, but quite thorough on the material that it covers:

http://wiki.radiantcms.org/Introduction_to_Radius
http://wiki.radiantcms.org/Tags_that_insert_content
http://wiki.radiantcms.org/Tags_that_change_the_scope
http://wiki.radiantcms.org/Conditional_tags

This being a wiki, feel free to correct any errors if you find them.

Cheers,
Drew

Got it to work. Thank you!! I’ll check out the Summer Reboot too.

And thanks to Mohit, as well - I will check out your Intro to Radiant
page!!

Hopefully I can get moving on this. Got a site to build, pronto.
