Hi Julian, How did you get started with radiant? Which version are you using?
The best way to get started is to install the radiant gem and use the radiant command to create a new project. This creates a rails 2.x application that runs a user interface for creating pages and managing assets. That usually needs command line access but there is no need to touch the code for getting started. Later, there are many plugins that can add much more functionality. Initially the version of rails is fixed with the radiant gem version and there is no need to worry about the app directory etc. You are right about the level of documentation. The github pages seem to have disappeared! Hope this helps David V.
