I am trying to install the in_place_editing plugin from github. I have looked at http://railswheels.com/in-place-editing and it suggests the following command: ./script/plugin install git://github.com/rails/in_place_editing I have tried this and nothing happens e.g. './script/plugin list' does not return anything. Are there some prerequisites that I am overlooking? Do I have any other options? It concerns me that my ./script/plugin commands do not seem to be working - a result of an upgrade problem perhaps ? ( I have recently upgraded my application to Rails 2.2.2 ) Thanks.

I have tried issuing the following command: ./script/plugin --verbose install http://github.com/rails/in_place_editing.git and I get: Plugins will be installed using http git init git pull --depth 1 http://github.com/rails/in_place_editing.git But again, I do not see any plugin under my vendor/plugins directory.

The command on the site is slightly wrong. You're missing the ".git" at the end. You need to use the full "git clone URL" when installing a plugin. You'll see this link on the project page: http://github.com/rails/in_place_editing from which you need to run the command: script/plugin install git://github.com/rails/in_place_editing.git Jason On Wed, Jan 21, 2009 at 3:34 PM, firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks for the response. So I tried: ./script/plugin --verbose install git://github.com/rails/in_place_editing.git and the following was output to my console: Plugins will be installed using http git init git pull --depth 1 git://github.com/rails/in_place_editing.git But I still do not see anything in my plugins directory. What is the 'git' command in the above? Do I need to install this first?

Hmm, that's odd. It ran perfectly fine for me. What happens when you do a straight clone of the project ( git clone git://github.com/rails/in_place_editing.git ) ? Here's my command and output: roelofs@trillian (svn) [master]~/proj $ ./script/plugin --verbose install git://github.com/rails/in_place_editing.git Plugins will be installed using http git init Initialized empty Git repository in /home/roelofs/proj/vendor/plugins/in_place_editing/.git/ git pull --depth 1 git://github.com/rails/in_place_editing.git Unpacking objects: 100% (18/18), done. remote: Counting objects: 18, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (14/14), done. remote: Total 18 (delta 4), reused 17 (delta 4) From git://github.com/rails/in_place_editing * branch HEAD -> FETCH_HEAD removing: .git Jason On Wed, Jan 21, 2009 at 3:58 PM, email@example.com

Two things are troubling me: 1) I haven't installed any git client software on my Ubuntu machine. That said, I read that script/plugin handles the fetching of code from the git repository and therefore I assume it is not necessary to install any git client software. 2) I have upgraded from Rails 1.2.6 to 2.2.2 (and made the necessary changes to my application) but I am concerned that the script/plugin code is the same that was generated when I first generated my application using Rails 1.2.6, and thus may not support git (as I assume in (1)).

Um, you do need git installed. Jason

Quite a few plugins rely on the installation phase of script/plugin install to push config files / js / css / etc files up into the main Rails workspace. Just untarring into your vendor/plugins does not run this installation process. Thus, use script/plugin install. Make sure you have the binaries installed for whatever SCM you use (SVN / git / etc).

I use a remote subversion repository to manage my application code, and access it through my IDE or the command line using svn client programs. I assume though that I need to install git client programs (git-core?) in order for script/plugin to be able to retrieve the in_place_editing plugin from the Rails github repository. Correct? Having retrieved it, I would then add it to my svn repository as I would any file that I create. Thanks...

My 2 cents: the bad news is you need to understand what git does, not just use it. The good news is: here are some resources I wrote about that while learning git for rails: http://harryseldon.thinkosphere.com/2009/01/14/git... http://harryseldon.thinkosphere.com/2008/11/08/gra...

Success! I have successfully installed auto_complete and in_place_editing from github. It was first necessary for me to install the git-core package on my Ubuntu Hardy Heron machine (sudo apt-get install git-core). Thanks... On 22 Jan, 15:41, "email@example.com"

My experience was even worse. That worse that I started to dislike git a lot. RoR is about keeping things simple and clear: now we have and http, and svn, AND git for installing plugins, and some of it works sometimes, but not always, and you need to install something else first, etc. NOT a good evolution, if this goes on. The best way to make a programming language less populair is make it cluttered, complicated, illogical and unstable. Git is starting to do all that for me. Hope it changes for the better. :-(

And the problem is? I mean, script/plugin install git... works exactly as expected, if you have git installed and it works like it should. Please state what problem you're having instead of just blatantly bashing something that works for 99% of the people who try to use it. Jason

Since I am new to ROR, this is very difficult for me to understand what happens (or not). Here are a few facts that might help to diagnose the issue, even if only 1% are concerned, this represents at least 2 people now ... :-/ script/about About your application's environment Ruby version 1.8.6 (universal-darwin9.0) RubyGems version 1.3.1 Rack version 1.0 bundled Rails version 2.3.2 Active Record version 2.3.2 Action Pack version 2.3.2 Active Resource version 2.3.2 Action Mailer version 2.3.2 Active Support version 2.3.2 Edge Rails revision unknown Application root /Users/me/Rails/project Environment development Database adapter sqlite3 Database schema version 20090419101050 MAC OS 10.5.6 macos:~$ sudo bash bash-3.2# gem install git Successfully installed git-1.0.5 1 gem installed Installing ri documentation for git-1.0.5... Installing RDoc documentation for git-1.0.5... bash-3.2# git bash: git: command not found So it seems that the git gem is ''successfully'' installed but the git command is not found. Did I do something wrong ? Well I am not even sure this is supposed to install a git command, but if I try to install a plugin in a ROR project, I have the following which results in nothing installed: macos:project$ script/plugin --verbose install git://github.com/activescaffold/active_scaffold.git -r rails-2.2 Plugins will be installed using http git init git pull --depth 1 git://github.com/activescaffold/active_scaffold.git rails-2.2 Any advice welcome, meanwhile I'll keep trying manual install of zip/tgz ...

Right. The git gem is not the Git client. The Git client is completely independent of Ruby; you will need to install it just the same way you'd install a Subversion or CVS client. I'm not sure what the git gem does, but I would guess that it's simply some Ruby bindings for Git. > Did I do something wrong ?

I think script/plugin should print an error message in this case, but unfortunately it doesn't. [...] > Any advice welcome, meanwhile I'll keep trying manual install of > zip/tgz ... Install an actual Git client. Problem solved. The situation is analogous to the situation with DBs: there are gems with Ruby bindings for mySQL, PostgreSQL, etc., but you need to install the DB software separately. Git integration works the same way. > > Olivier. Best, -- Marnen Laibow-Koser http://www.marnen.org email@example.com

However, I think adding a little check in script/plugin to notify users that the git command is not not found could help newbies like to me to figure out what's going on ...
