Hey all. I’m making use of Engines-based plugins in several of my
sites. I have a wiki, a login engine, a CRM tool… Right now, I
install the plugin(s), then have to create a mask controller containing
a layout “standard-layout” call, and that’s it. This would seem to be a
common problem for any engine-type plugin that aims to integrate with
(rather than live separately from) the main app.
Is there a better solution that I’m not seeing with existing code?
Assuming there isn’t (I’ve looked), what would people think about
patching in support to the layout system of Rails to support an
application-wide default layout? The Rails docs mention using
“application.rhtml” as a way to achieve this, but it doesn’t work, and
there’s no code in place to support it in the latest stable release that
I can find.
