Installing Plugins

Coming from Perl and familiar with CPAN, I’d like some info about
installing
plugins.

Basically, do I trust where the libraries are installed?

For example, I have installed the Liquid plugin (./script/plugin install
http://liquid-markup.googlecode.com/svn/trunk ) and the installation
directory is vendor/plugin/svn.

To me, this doesn’t seem to be correct. Surely it should
be vendor/plugin/liquid. I don’t want to install libs as gems as I just
want
them application specific. I also don’t need SVN tips, I know how to
rename
an installation directory. My question is, what do I trust?

As an aside, I’ve installed RedCloth but I could only find it as a gem,
is
it possible to install a gem as a plugin? I’ve found these repositories
but
no joy.

I’ve seen that issue myself a couple of times. Never bothered to look
into it, I just renamed the folder manually.

Check out the “gem unpack” command

I’ve found these repositories but no joy
github.com and gemcutter.org are the top places to look for RoR
plugins/gems.
You can install RedCloth as a plugin from github.
