How do you develop engines?


#1

Specifically, I want to develop a patch for login_engine.

I looked in SVN, and there is no rakefile, so it doesn’t look like it’s
expected to be developed independently. If it is, I imagine there has
to be
some type of coordination with ‘engines’.

If it’s only supposed to be as part of a ‘real’ rails app, how do you do
it? I
can’t get the tests to run. First it gives me an error about not
finding a
file (test_extensions) - I think I’ve worked around that, but then ALL
the
tests fail.

Carrying the latter case further, how do you swap out an installed
vendor/plugins/login_engine for a SVN version. I’ve had quite a bit of
trouble doing that.

For what it’s worth, I’m on Rails 1.1 with with the most recent release
of
engines and login_engine (I think).

I helped design it, so
i feel pretty good about it.But I will plug 2 of my other sites that are
running on the same engine
code at the moment (which I designed from top to bottom)
