Radiant Dav

This extension allows you to access some Radiant content by pointing your WebDav client to /admin/dav. You'll have to authenticate yourself before access will be granted.


This extension needs the following gems installed:

  • unicode
  • mime-types


It depends on your Radiant privileges what content will be exposed:


  • Pages

Developers and administrators

  • Snippets
  • Layouts
  • Javascripts
  • Stylesheets

File extensions

Depending on the selected filter, the extension adds the following file extensions to the name:

  • .html for WymEditor filter or if no filter is selected
  • .markdown for Markdown filter
  • .textile for Textile filter

Radiant extensions

The Dav extension incorporates with the following Radiant extensions:

Styles 'n Scripts

If the Styles 'n Scripts extension is installed, the javascripts and stylesheets will also be accessible.

Language Redirect

If a page type is set to LanguageRedirect, the configuration will be parsed and each language goes into its own language folder.


Some tasks sill needs to be done:

  • Copy a resource
  • Move a resource
  • Make a collection

For development I suggest the RESTClient Firefox-Addon, which allows to send WebDav request and analyze the response.


Don't use Mac OS X Finder, it has an awful performance due its massive amount of unneeded requests. Use Cyberduck instead!


This extension uses the excellent railsdav Rails plugin from Stuart Eccles.
