Thanks cody

i have one more question:
what if my code (i want to make plugin for), contains call to some other
tables, getting data from them as per need?
How may i assure that user have some table like that, or i implement the
code in similar tables?

hope i am able to let you understood the prob i m facing…
i checked “acts_as_authenticated” plugin , it use generators , make
models & views, should i go that way?
is that only way?

or should i opt for Engines?

i know i am asking too much , but …plz tell
really thanks

It depends on your needs. I wrote acts_as_authenticated with the
assumption you’re going to take it and run with it for your own
nefarious purposes. I find a generator is best for that. If you look
at acts_as_authenticated, you’ll see that it uses generators to write
out migration scripts. Just add a note in your README to run your
migration generator first.

Pat,

That is the right place, but Radiant includes its own version of RSpec.
However, it shouldn’t conflict with the other plugins…

Hi Sean

I’ve installed all four of those plugins - but when I run script/
generate, it doesn’t know about the cucumber generators.

Aha. I was looking at the source of script/generate and it doesn’t load
environment.rb, only boot.rb, so I don’t think it’s likely to grab
generators from those plugins.

If you have some time right now, let’s powwow on the IRC channel. Maybe
we can figure this out.

Update for the list: managed to get a solution figured out so
generators in vendor/plugins are now loaded. Change is in GitHub.

Thanks Sean for the help.

Sorry Sean, that last email was a little useless and blunt.

Is there anything I can do to help debug why generators aren’t
working? It’s not something I’m particularly knowledgeable about with
Rails. Would it be a Rails thing? Or Radiant-related?
