When developing applications, Webrick will automatically reload
controllers, models, etc. if the source changes. For obvious reasons,
doesn’t do this for plugins, which makes it a pain to develop said
I was hoping Mongrel might have some facility to say “watch this
too and reload any changes”. Obviously, re-init’ing all plugins would
performance-killing, but simply reloading the lib dir of a given plugin
should be no worse than reloading models and controllers - and, let’s
it, how often does init.rb change when you’re developing a plugin?
So… is there some way to get Mongrel to automatically reload my plugin
when it changes?
