We’ve been doing some early (or late… if you’re a half-full kind of person) spring cleaning on some of our projects. One of the small projects, flash_message_conductor, which we released last year as a plugin is now a gem. We’ve been moving away from using plugins in favor of gems as we like locking in specific released versions and being able to specify them in our
environment.rb file is quite convenient.
To install, just run the following:
sudo gem install flash-message-conductor --source=http://gemcutter.org Successfully installed flash-message-conductor-1.0.0 1 gem installed Installing ri documentation for flash-message-conductor-1.0.0... Installing RDoc documentation for flash-message-conductor-1.0.0...
You’ll then just need to include the following in your
Rails::Initializer.run do |config| # ... config.gem 'flash-message-conductor', :lib => 'flash_message_conductor', :source => "http://gemcutter.org" end
You can take a peak at the README for usage examples.
We’ll be packaging up a handful of our various plugins that we reuse on projects and moving them to gems. Stay tuned…Read more at the source
