How to package a plugin and publish it

Hi,

I searched this forum as well as googled for documentation on how to
package a plugin, couldn’t find any.
May be I missed documentation about it, I really appreciate for any
pointers to doc/tutorial or steps for packaging and publishing a rails
plugin.

Thanks
Babu

rails plugin_test_app
cd plugin_test_app
ruby script/generate plugin make_rails_scale

Open up vendor/plugins/make_rails_scale/lib and stick some ruby classes
in it. then edit the plugins init.rb to require them and other
initialization stuff. Check out the structure of another plugin which
does something sort of similar, architecturally and see how they do it.

Thanks for the reply… I know how to create a plugin, my question is
how to package and distribute
it for sharing it with others.

Right, my bad.

It’s as simple as putting your plugin at a publicly accessible source
repository. You can use SVN, or host it free at GitHub. Just know that
only Rails 2.1 supports installing plugins with git via the
script/plugin method.

Here’s an example of a plugin of mine on GitHub:
http://github.com/Squeegy/fleximage/tree/master
