Plugin Install from tgz or zip file

I have a plugin I need to install on my bluehost rails app. Using

./script/plugin install git://github.com/ambethia/recaptcha.git

My command line is giving me no response. It doesn’t seem to try or
even fail, just the next line in bash show us as though nothing was
requested. I just assume bluehost doesn’t allow for grabbing git urls,
and I don’t want to install local gems.

I then decided to download the tarball, and I extracted it, and now I
am trying to install the plugin from file… what is the best way to
do this? I assume there is an option where I download and extract the
tarball to …/recaptcha folder. This folder contains the plugin,
init.rb, lib/, test/, etc etc.

script/plugin install -from-file ./recaptcha

I don’t see an option in the help files or through some forum
searching, anyone know an easy way to do this, or know a good
tutorial?

Thanks

It’s not a question of local gems. You need to have a Git client
installed to pull from Git repositories. Do you? (If you’re not sure,
type “which git” and see if you get an answer.)

If not, install the git-core package (how you do this varies depending
on your distro).

Hi Josh
Actually what you extracted from the tar is the plugin itself. No
need to install it. Just move it to vendors/plugin folder

No! Many plugins have an init.rb script that will be run by
script/plugin install. Straight copying will not always install a
plugin properly.

Concluding:
(1) Just copy the plugin contents to the vendor/plugin folder.
(2) execute the init.rb script with ruby.

That has worked for me so far, as retrieving from git, with Windows this
is
still a pain to do. There are other topics in this mailinglist about it
:wink:

Or

As Marnen Laibow-Koser said install the git client and then from the
same vendor/plugin folder type

git-clone git://github.com/ambethia/recaptcha.git
