Pluggable code

Hello all,

My team is working on an existing Rails 3.2 application, which is
basically
a web service for managing remote devices. We are able to manage android
and windows devices remotely now. For the next version, we want to add
support for iOS. Although, we are not sure we’ll have all the
infrastructure in place for that to happen. This way, we’d like to add
iOS
support code (such as the logic for handling cloud messaging) but we’d
like
to add that in a pluggable way. What I mean is that, we are not sure
this
feature is going to our next release, therefore we need a way to
enable/disable support for iOS.

What kind of code architecture do you guys recommend to go on with this
approach?

  • A rails gem?
  • A rails engine?
    Other alternatives?

Thanks in advance.
