Welcome to adva-cms
adva-cms is a cutting edge open source application platform based on Ruby on
Rails and Rails Engines.

Different from others, adva-cms lives in vendor directory and keeps your main
app directory clean and dandy. So you can reclaim app directory and use it
only for your own application files.

adva-cms makes it extensible: you can only pick those engines/features you really
need for your application and omit the rest. All engines are designed to work
together seamlessly, so the whole platform feels much more consistent for
similar but separate Rails applications.
Please check out /doc directory and our site for more info.
You need Rails 2.2.2 or newer.

  rails my-app
  cd my-app
  git init

  git submodule add git:// vendor/adva 
  ruby vendor/adva/setup.rb     # adds adva rake tasks and required files
  rake db:migrate:all           # runs adva-cms migrations

  ruby script/server
  firefox http://localhost:3000

	# alternatively use git clone instead of git submodule:
	# git clone git:// vendor/adva 
	# to switch to a certain tag or branch other than the master branch you can do:
	# cd vendor/adva
	# git checkout -b [your-branchname] origin/[branchname] or
	# git checkout -b [your-branchname] [tagname] 
	# cd -
You should see adva-cms installation screen.
