== Beast -  Two's company. Three's a forum. More's a Beast.

A small, light-weight forum in Rails with a scary name and a goal of around 500 lines of code when we're done. [1]

[1] The 500 LOC limit has officially been put to rest (http://beast.caboo.se/forums/1/topics/681), however the goal is unchanged: clean, readable code, and a great minimal forum app.  Less is more.


== How to Obtain Beast

Grab the latest:

svn checkout http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/beast/trunk beast

Customize your database.yml:

cp config/database.example.yml config/database.yml

Load the schema:

rake db:schema:load

(You cannot use rake db:migrate to migrate the schema up from 0)

Change the PASSWORD_SALT in config/environment.rb.

Launch it:

script/server


== Optional Gems

get RedCloth for using Textile in Ruby

gem install RedCloth

get OpenID for OpenID logins:

gem install ruby-openid

get GetText for Translation support
