There’s a lot of traffic on this list asking what the options exist for
login solutions, file upload solutions, search solutions, etc. Looking
over the Wiki is one way to figure out what’s there, and the mailing
list is certainly good, but two even better solutions come to mind:
- RailsForge: Hosts, indexes, and serves add-on solutions.
Pros: Mimics SourceForge, RubyForge; centralized repository for this
Cons: May break script/plugin model of installation
- Rails Extensions ‘r’ Us
Lists extensions by category with a brief description and pointer to
source and wiki articles. Allows for user rating and comments.
Pros: Allows you to host your own plugins and engines in svn as you’re
used to. Provides richer feedback on how good an extension may be.
Cons: Each person still has to host his own extension or plugin
I don’t know if this has been considered, but I thought I’d toss it out
there to see what people think.
