Overview

Ray is just a rake file with some tasks that simplify the installation, disabling, enabling and uninstallation of Radiant extensions. Although Ray relies on GitHub (as the extension host) it does not rely on the git command, if you don't have git installed then the Ruby Open-URI library is used to download compressed archives.

To use Ray you need git or tar installed in addition to the normal Radiant stack; Windows users probably need one of those "unixy" environment things since Ray does occasionally call out to system tools (I really don't know about Windows though). Ray only supports the git SCM; although I'd happily accept a patch that used git's tools to access CVS, SVN or whatever else it can handle. If you need to install extensions from other sources you should use Radiant's built-in script/extension install command which can handle a wide variety of installation types.
