Radiant is a free software content management system written in Ruby created and designed by John W. Long as a Ruby on Railsweb application. While suitable for the non-technical user, it also provides elements for more advanced users.

Radiant has a lightweight core library with “extensions” providing additional customised functionality. Because extensions do not modify the core, upgrading is simplified; With over 200 extensions in the extension registry  it can be adapted for a range of uses including membership management. All the content is stored inside a database. It is possible to use MySQL, PostgreSQL orSQLite. Radiant depends, like every Ruby on Rails application, on the installed adapters for the database.

It is distributed via a separate download or installable with RubyGems.

Two PHP ports of Radiant CMS are available as Frog CMS and Wolf CMS.
