Rails 2.0.2 upgrade difficulties

Getting a routing error when I tried upgrading to Rails 2.0.2.

… vendor/plugins/engines/lib/engines/rails_extensions/routing.rb:69:in
`from_plugin’: You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
(NoMethodError)
The error occurred while evaluating nil.routes_path from …

Any ideas on this? Its possible there is a 2.0 issue with my code or
another plugin but the logs show only the following …

Attempting to copy plugin assets from
‘…vendor/plugins/calendar_date_select/public’ to
‘… public/plugin_assets’
** has_many_polymorphs: rails environment detected
** has_many_polymorphs: loaded ok

TIA,

Sean

I had that problem, and it was that I had a from_plugin call in my app’s
routes to a plugin that actually didn’t exist. If you’re sure the
plugin
does exist, can you try editing that file and make it like:

module Engines::RailsExtensions::Routing

Loads the set of routes from within a plugin and evaluates them at

this

point within an application’s main routes.rb file.

Plugin routes are loaded from <plugin_root>/routes.rb.

def from_plugin(name)
map = self # to make ‘map’ available within the plugin route file

# add these debug stmts
Engines.logger.debug "Trying to load plugin #{name}'s routes."
Engines.logger.debug "Engines loaded so far: 

#{Engines.plugins.collect
(&:name).inspect}"

routes_path = Engines.plugins[name].routes_path
Engines.logger.debug "loading routes from #{routes_path}"
eval(IO.read(routes_path), binding, routes_path) if File.file

?(routes_path)
end
end

and let us know what the result of those lines is?

Can you also paste in the full stack trace?

thnx

The plugin definitely exists. The mappings worked fine until I
upgraded to Rails 2.0.2 and the Engines trunk.

Just guessing, but … maybe it isn’t a valid plugin in terms of Rails
2.0? I.e. does it have an init.rb file and/or a lib subdirectory?

Yes it has both. Is that a problemo?

It obviously is not present in Engines.plugins:

“calendar_date_select”, “has_many_polymorphs”, “paginating_find”]

We might want to raise a more meaningful error or log a warning in
this case …

Whoops, no. Sorry for not being more clear.

Rails regards a directory with an init.rb and/or a lib subdir as a
valid plugin. As such it should be added to the Engines.plugins hash.
If it’s not there when routing is initialized, something pretty weird
is going on.

OK I found out the root of the problem (actually Andrew R. helped me
find it during a brief chat last night.)

I’m using active_merchant in my project and I’m requiring it from the
railscart plugin (that’s the plugin that was coming up nil.)
Ultimately active_merchant does the following in integrations.rb:

Inflector.inflections do |inflect|
inflect.uncountable ‘bogus’
end

Somehow this is kicking off the mapping stuff before it should. I
don’t know enough about Rails, plugins or Engines to say why this is
happening but that’s what I’m observing.

If I move “require ‘active_merchant’” from railscart’s init.rb and
move into the application’s environment.rb everything works fine. The
mappings are loaded and no nasty stack trace.

Weird. But resolved now. Thanks to everyone for all of the help.

Wow, thank you so much for posting this. This is very helpful. I was
frustrated by the same error.

thanks again!

Sorry, but I can’t get this to work:

When starting webrick I get the following error:
/vendor/plugins/engines/lib/
engines/rails_extensions/routing.rb:69:in from_plugin': You have a nil object when you didn't expect it! (NoMethodError) The error occurred while evaluating nil.routes_path from /config/routes.rb:4 from C:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-2.0.2/lib/ action_controller/routing.rb:1250:indraw’
from /config/routes.rb:1
… lots of levels…
from C:/ruby/bin/rdebug-ide:16:in `load’
from C:/ruby/bin/rdebug-ide:16

engines (with savage beast) was working fine before this . . . but now
the ruby error is vastly above my understanding of these plugins. if i
comment out:

map.from_plugin :savage_beast

in my routes.rb file, then everything works.

any help here is greatly appreciated – I don’t understand engines as
well as I should, and I can’t properly troubleshoot this.

In my case, I also had troubles with “the big upgrade”. I discovered
this thread here, in particlar Sean Schofield’s post about the active
merchant plugin’s inflector problem, and taking inspiration from that, I
added the following code to my environment.rb, inside the config block:

config.plugins = [ :all, :active_merchant ]

Now my application is loading correctly! Thanks to all who explored this
issue… it was a real pain.
