Controller from plugin not working

I have a controller:

vendor/plugins/buoy_report/lib/app/controllers/
buoy_station_controller.rb

class BuoyStationController < ActionController::Base

def index
render :text => ‘buoy test’
end

end

when I try the url for rails 2.3.11:

http://localhost:3000/buoy_station/index

I get:

Routing Error
No route matches “/buoy_station/index” with {:method=>:get}

Hi jedrin

first of all, you should make sure that this route is really
existing(you can type rake routes | grep “buoy_station”).
secondly, you have to add the following configurations to vendor/
plugins/buoy_report/lib/buoy_station.rb :

%w{ models controllers helpers }.each do |dir|
path = File.join(File.dirname(FILE), ‘app’, dir)
$LOAD_PATH << path
ActiveSupport::Dependencies.load_paths << path
ActiveSupport::Dependencies.load_once_paths.delete(path)
end

This is important to add your plugin files to the load path and make
them appear just like files in the main app directory.

i hope that this helps you
for more information in how to make a plugin, this link could be
helpful: http://guides.rubyonrails.org/v2.3.8/plugins.html

Thanks,

I seem to remember some of that, it’s been awhile.

I put that code in my plugin that you posted, I am still having the
same problem

Anyway,

‘rake routes’ just shows these.

/:controller/:action/:id
/:controller/:action/:id(.:format)

That should probably be vendor/plugins/buoy_report/app/controllers/
buoy_station_controller.rb
if you want it to get picked up automatically by rails

sorry, i maked a mistake, you should put the configurations in vendor/
plugins/buoy_report/lib/buoy_report.rb instead of:
vendor/plugins/buoy_report/lib/buoy_station.rb

concerning route , why don’t put map.resources :buoy_station in the
main routes file?

Hi,

I have seen your posts suggesting to load paths for all controllers/
models/views from plugin.

I used the following command :

%w{ models controllers }.each do |dir|
path = File.join(File.dirname(FILE), ‘app’, dir)
$LOAD_PATH << path
puts path
puts “yeyeyeyyeyeye”
ActiveSupport::Dependencies.load_paths << path
ActiveSupport::Dependencies.load_once_paths.delete(path)

but getting following error :

undefined method `load_paths’ for ActiveSupport::Dependencies:Module
(NoMethodError)

I know sometime back you also got the same error. Please let me know
what was the root cause.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks alot.

I went through this whole thing like below, was that unnecessary ?

module BuoyReport #:nodoc:
module Routing #:nodoc:
module MapperExtensions
def buoy_reports
@set.add_route("/buoy_report", {:controller =>
“buoy_reports”, :action => “index”})
end
end
end
end

ActionController::Routing::RouteSet::Mapper.send :include,
BuoyReport::Routing::MapperExtensions
