Radiant CMS

Radiant is one of the few CMS’s for Rails. It is an utterly simple and straightforward way to manage a website. You can create pages, snippets, and layouts to form the basis of your website. The team has deliberately chosen to keep the core simple and allow others to add on with extensions.

Our Impressions:

Radiant is quite simple and elegant in its concept and interface. Any user, no matter how computer literate, immediately understands how to create new pages and edit them. As soon as you log in you’re brought to a hierarchical listing of pages. Snippets allow you the flexibility to create sidebars and menus that would be repetitive other wise. Layouts help you to manage you templates.

Radiant is only meant to do so much. If you’re trying to build a complicated site with a lot of pages, this is not the answer. You also have to be willing/ready to figure out how to install Ruby on Rails applications, which is quite different than the normal PHP installation.
