Better Rails Plugin Management

by Obie Fernandez on Jul 27, 2006 |

As the number of Rails plugins steadily increases, remembering and managing these plugins is getting increasingly difficult. There is some significant effort going into improving the process of installing plugins with the RaPT project.

As you start to find your favourite plugins, you might often find yourself using the same group of plugins on every new Rails project that you begin. Rails Plugin Packs, by Luke Redpath, allows automatically installation of custom group of plugins in one easy operation.

This sounds a little like Maven/Ivy. Just kidding :-].

Re: starting to sound like maven by Obie Fernandez

I was talking to PragDave about this in the hallway at OSCON and his response was along the lines of "why don't they just use RubyGems!?!?"

Re: starting to sound like maven by Alex Popescu

I am not sure I get it: use RubyGems (or equivalent) for Java? If so, I guess Ivy is doing exactly the same, and with much less problems than RubyGems. If PragDave is suggesting to use RubyGems for managing RoR plugins, than I guess he has already answered my next question :-].
