About Radiance-Bootstrap

This is a system that offers a single file to bootstrap Radiance deployed installations from. Using ASDF the system can be concatenated down to a single file that can be loaded in. The file will then handle the installation and configuration of a basic setup.

Using It

Download the file and load it in.

curl -O
sbcl --script radiance-bootstrap.lisp

It'll ask you some questions about the installation interactively. That's it.

Compiling the Bootstrapper

If you want to generate the full bootstrap file yourself, you can do so like this:

(asdf:operate 'asdf:build-op :radiance-bootstrap)

Migrating from Radiance 1.0 to 2.0

In Radiance 2.0 the way environment directories are handled has changed, which breaks the previous bootstrapper's start script. In order to migrate, you should be able to just replace the start.lisp file with the current one from this repository.
