This is “the reference manual” for Rattail, intended for developers and system administrators. It assumes the reader is involved with the creation or maintenance of a Poser/Rattail app. It tries to explain the concepts involved and hopefully tie them all together.
This manual is primarily organized around the possible “layers” of a Poser/Rattail app:
Feature Layer - app features provided by the framework
Base Layer - general app install, command line, plus filemon etc.
Data Layer - when a DB or data import/export come into it
Web Layer - all things web
Monitoring Layer - keeping an eye out for production issues
Deployment Layer - deploying a production system
Backup Layer - backing up the production system
Please understand, this manual is a work in progress. We finally have an “authoritative home base” for this documentation, but it may take some time to fill in all the blanks.
Please see https://rattailproject.org/docs/rattail-manual/ for the latest version of this document.
