Make plugin generator consistent with gemplugins

Reported by Jacek Becela | June 30th, 2008 @ 06:28 PM | in 2.x

This is another patch (after #272 and others) which makes classic plugins and GemPlugins more alike. It changes plugin generator so it creates rails/init.rb instead of init.rb in main directory of a newly created plugin.

    Should I also change locations of tasks and generators (move them into rails/ dir)? If you +1 this, be sure to take a look at #441 too.

    • Title changed from “Make plugin generator create rails/init.rb” to “Make plugin generator consistent with gemplugins”

    I have uploaded new patch which also changes locations of tasks and generators to rails/tasks and rails/generators respectively.

    Still the case,

    ncr:~/dev/edge$ ./script/generate plugin foo
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/lib
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/tasks
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/test
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/README
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/MIT-LICENSE
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/Rakefile
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/init.rb
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/install.rb
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/uninstall.rb
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/lib/foo.rb
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/tasks/foo_tasks.rake
          create  vendor/plugins/foo/test/foo_test.rb

    I'm not quite sure if it's worth forcing all the plugins to be gemlike. Because this is beginning to become a weird hybrid of classical plugins and gems. If we're walking the gem path, we should probably generate the gemspec and all as well.

    In any case, let's discuss in the core mailing list. Closing the ticket till we have a conclusion.
