Ad-Hoc Plugins Repository Forming Around Rails Wiki #

by why in inspect

The new Rails release (0.14) includes a very loose support for plugins, right? You drop plugins in vender/plugins and done. At David’s request, folks have been dropping their plugins on the wiki and now you can get a script which scans the wiki page for URIs and presents you with a list of plugins you can install.

 $ cd my-rails-app
 $ curl http://lesscode.org/svn/rtomayko/rails/scripts/plugin > script/plugin
 $ chmod +x script/plugin

This reminds me of the old RAA-Install that got born after RubyConf 2002. I love this kind of hack’ry. Using the simplest of protocols and conventions to get bootstrapped.

Gah! Stupid browser…Anyway, my smug response was going to be: “And then building multiple tiers of protocols and conventions on that initial simple one…”

Rails 0.14.3 and above contains this script by default.
