Rails vendor directory ... WTF?


#1

Hey all,

Working on a little rails app and was gonna install backgroundrb for
something… tried to go into the vendor/plugins dir and plugins wasn’t
there! my app was created with a normal rails appname command… i
tried making another and the same thing happened… where do i put my
backgroundrb plugin now? that’s not all… to make matters even more
perplexing inside vendor there’s a bunch of ‘activexxxxxx’ folders and
a rails folder… in the rails folder there’s the same directories and
it goes on with a bunch of nested directories… seriously wtf?

Are you using an IDE by any chance? I seem to remember RadRails choking
on me about a year ago and doing some crazy things to my directory
structure.

yup just started using Aptana + Radrails… but i used the rails
command at the commandline to make the rails tree (it didn’t work for
me through the IDE)… so the plugins directory should be there? i
guess i’ll just go ahead and create it. for a sec i thought they
changed where they stored them.

thanks
