Rail3 will not load generators that are located in gems that are loaded using bundler

Reported by joshsmoore (at gmail) | December 21st, 2009 @ 06:13 AM

When gems are managed through bundler the Gem module will not respond to the loaded_specs method. This makes it impossible to load generators from the included gems. I patched the generators.rb so that if Gem does not respond to loaded_specs and if Gem.path is not nil to look for generators in the Gem.path directory. I have attached a patch and it would be great if I could get some feedback on it (this is my first patch I have submitted to rails).

    • Tag changed from generators, patch, rails3 to generators, patch, rails3, review

    +1 Applies cleanly on master. All tests in railties also pass.

    By the way, I don't know if it really needs tests, but the patch above doesn't include one.

    Thanks guys. I just have to check with Yehuda if they plan to support Gem.loaded_specs or I will have to use Gem.path as Josh proposed.

    Just have generators in your load path and it will work. If you want to invoke to "script/generate foo", have "generators/foo_generator" in your load path and it will be picked.
