support generators from gems named like _generators, -generators, etc

Reported by Josh Nichols | July 1st, 2008 @ 09:44 PM | in 2.x

Currently, generators can only be used from gems named like *_generator.

It would be very nice to be able to have a little more flexibility to name something like foo-generator, bar_generators, baz-generators, etc.

I have one named shoulda-generators, which is the primary motivator for me filing this.

    • Tag changed from generators to generators, patch

    Here's a patch allowing my proprosed change.

    I didn't see any tests for the existing behavior, but if someone were to point me in the right direction, I'd be more than happen to update them.

    • State changed from “new” to “wontfix”

    I think you should just rename your gem to should_generator.
