This extension adds self-contained liveblogging support (think along the lines of Engadget’s live coverage of events) to RadiantCMS. It’s designed to have no external dependancies and should work just fine out of the box on most Radiant installations.

It’s a bit quick-and-dirty in its current incarnation – there’s plenty of scope for improvement. Patches would be very welcome and fully encouraged.

At the command prompt, in the root of your Radiant project, type:

script/extension install liveblog

Remember to run

rake radiant:extensions:liveblog:migrate

As well as the extra fields and associations needed for the liveblogging being created, you’ll also find two new snippets – liveblog-content and liveblog-heading. These are used by the default layout to display your liveblog to your users.

Once the rake is complete, you will need to add an LiveblogArchive page and two layouts, one called LiveblogLayout and the other, LiveblogEntryLayout

Recommended default content for these pages can be found in the assets directory of the extension. assets/add_post.png will need to be copied to public/images/admin.
