=============== ABOUT =============== Featherweight is an addons site for Mozilla based software products. Contrary to the Zamboni platform, it is written in PHP. Featherweight is based on the CodeIgniter framework, and aims to be a more lightweight, simplistic alternative. Since many opensource projects use free or shared hosting, sometimes php is the best way to go. In terms of performance, not having a persistent process is sometimes required, such as with Dreamhost. =============== LICENSE =============== Featherweight is originally conceived and written by Matt Parnell/ilikenwf, and is (C) Copyright 2011 Matt Parnell; however, it is licensed under the GNU GPLv3. Ion_Auth is copyright Ben Edmunds, and can be found at the following: https://github.com/benedmunds/CodeIgniter-Ion-Auth This README must be included in any distribution, modification, or live version of the application in order to keep credit to those due and to affirm it's status under the GPLv3. =============== HOW TO HELP =============== If you would like to support development, please support the Nightingale project with code contributions (to Featherweight or Nightingale itself) ...just visit our forums at http://getnightingale.com or join us in IRC on MozNet, in #nightingale =============== INSTALL =============== All that's required is a standard LAMP setup - Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP... From there, decide where in your webroot or subdomain, or vhost you'd like to put Featherweight, and clone the git repo there. Then, edit application/config/database.php to set your database details. YOU MUST set the absolute path to featherweight/application/cache/db and turn caching on in order to cache database queries (HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!). Then, in config.php, make sure to set a session key to enable session cookies. Further information for configuration is detailed in each of the files in application/config/*.php Then, navigate your browser to the location you installed featherweight, and you should be able to login using: firstname.lastname@example.org password Make sure to change your password!
