(announce) Engines 1.2 plugin creation tutorial


#1

I’ve just written a tutorial on writing plugins that use the Engines
1.2 plugin. The latest release of Engines changes quite a few things,
and while they’re all documented in the rdoc, I’ve pulled them
together into a more easily-digestible format for beginners.

It’s at http://gwyn.dezyne.net/page/writing_a_plugin_with_engines_ .

I’ve also released a plugin called Macaque, which is a brutally simple
wiki. It’s at http://gwyn.dezyne.net/page/macaque .

I’d be interested in feedback on either or both.

Cheers,

Gwyn.

Looks nice Gwyn,

One suggestion though. I’d go for

module Macaque
mattr_accessor :option
self.option = "something’
end

rather than

@@option = “something”

since it’s better to work with the interface that mattr_accessor
guarantees, rather than relying on how it’s implemented :slight_smile:

mattr_accessor :option
self.option = "something'

Done - thanks.

Hey Gwyn,

It’s useful to have all this information in one place. Thanks!
