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.

Featherweight is originally conceived and written by 
Matt Parnell/ilikenwf, and is (C) Copyright 2011 Matt Parnell; however,

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:

admin@admin.com
password

Make sure to change your password!
