Installing plugins... is git necessary?


#1

Hey Guys,

I tried the following on my rails 2.1.1 project:

script/plugin install acts_as_tree

and I got the following error:

Plugin not found: [“acts_as_tree”]

This method of installing plugins worked months ago on another rails
2.0+ project… Do I need to use github now?

Sonny.

You can go to github, and download the tarball, extract it in your
vendor/plugins folder, then follow instructions if any additional step
is required. Git is not compulsory, but highly recommended.

So the “script/plugin install …” script no longer works without git?

Thanks Sazima,

I added github as a source but I’m still getting the

Plugin not found: [“acts_as_tree”]

I wrote recently an article about Rails, Git and plugin management. It
might be of interest to you:

Fernando’s instructions worked for me. Seems a bit tedious though -
working cli install would surely better?
I tried following Sazima’s instructions. Couldn’t find the plug-in
even with the git sources.
