Geokit Rails issue

I’m getting undefined local variable or method `acts_as_mappable’.

I only have 1 model in my app right now. I have tried several methods of
installation.

  1. Tried using bundler adding gem “geokit”, “1.5.0” to the Gemfile and
    bundle install and bundle pack.

  2. Tried Rails::Initializer.run do |config|config.gem “geokit” end with
    rake gems:install

  3. tried ./script/plugin install git://github.com/andre/geokit-rails.git

none of these work for me. I get the same error.

Here is my model.

require ‘geokit’
require ‘vendor/plugins/geokit-rails/init.rb’
class Listing < ActiveRecord::Base
acts_as_mappable
end

got my config/preinitializer.rb file

Any ideas?

It doesn’t stick out in my mind so I have to believe that somewhere in
their documentation, you just add to config/environment.rb (inside the
initializer loop)

config.gem “geokit”

yeah, I tried that, and it didn’t work. (see method #2). I’ve already
done a google search for that error, and a couple blogs come up that
show methods for fixing it. I’ve tried their methods, but it hasn’t
worked for me.

umm… of course it works - I have a fully functional web site working
using exactly that setup. That also is the way to tell rails to use an
installed gem in the application.

Get rid of these…

require ‘geokit’
require ‘vendor/plugins/geokit-rails/init.rb’

config/preinitializer.rb file

yeah, I got all the other gems working fine. (rails, mysql, paperclip,
will_paginate, clearance). Just for some reason, I can’t get this one to
work. Actually, I take that back. If I hop into console and require
“geokit”, then I can use the API directly. The only thing I can’t get to
work is acts_as_mappable. It just keeps saying that it’s undefined. My
model is Listing, so when I just hop into console and type “Listing” it
throws the error, even if I require ‘geokit’ first.

I don’t use the plugin, don’t use any ‘require’ anything just…

config/environment.rb

config.gem “geokit”

and in my model…

acts_as_mappable

that’s it - nothing more… restart the web server, open a console -
done.

hmm, yeah. It’s the weirdest thing. I started a fresh app and tried just
that, and it was a no go. I still get undefined method
acts_as_mappable… I’m not sure what’s going on, but that’s for the
help :slight_smile:

using:
Ruby 1.8.7
Rails 2.3.5
Geokit 1.5.0
OSX 10.5.8

Did you ever get anywhere on this issue? Were you using Bundler at the
time? I just ran into it while setting up an existing application to use
Bundler. Upon disabling Bundler, everything works as before, so I’m
certain it’s a Bundler bug… Not sure where to start on it.

Solved it! First, make sure you don’t have the geokit-rails plugin
installed. It just confuses Bundler and Rails. Then make sure you
specify in your Gemfile BOTH the geokit gem AND the geokit-rails gem,
something like this:

gem ‘geokit’, ‘>= 1.5.0’
gem ‘geokit-rails’, ‘1.1.4’

If you’re on Rails 3, that should do it. If you’re on Rails 2 like me,
you’ll need to make sure you follow the instructions on the Bundler
website: http://gembundler.com/rails23.html

Works beautifully for me!
