Install Extensions With Ease
Sean Cribbs created an outstanding feature for the latest Radiant (0.6.9). You can now install extensions from the command line:
script/extension install gallery
By default, that script will look at the Radiant Extension Registry to try to find the specified extension. When it is found, the extension will be checked out or downloaded (whichever is appropriate) and it’s
update tasks will be run.
To get some details about what you can do, run:
Not to be confused with this (which I also recommend):
script/extension install help
And to find details about an extension you may run:
PC:radiant you$ script/extension info comments Name: comments Description: Adds blog-like comment functionality to Radiant. Author: Ryan Heneise <firstname.lastname@example.org> Source code: git://github.com/artofmission/radiant-comments.git Download: Install type: Git
I encourage all extension developers to register at the Radiant Extension Registry to make it even easier for users to find and install your well-written, well-tested and perfect-addition-to-Radiant extensions.
One small note for users upgrading from older versions: a minor typo prevents the extension script from being added to your Radiant instance when you run
rake radiant:update. To fix this, you could create a new instance of radiant and copy the script over, or freeze to edge to use the command. See this commit for details on the required change.
