RPlug Up and Running
13th Feb 2007 | Tags: programming ruby rails
Well, it’s got the basic functionality it needs, so I’m about to put out a 0.1.0 gem for RPlug. It has a dependency on SourceControl, which I think only deserves a 0.0.5 release because it only does the bare minimum to support RPlug at the moment.
Both projects are entirely up in subversion if anyone wants to check them out, but they’re not quite ready for public consumption at the moment.
Example usage and output follows.

For those new to the blog, I’m currently reinventing a few wheels here - RPlug is a replacement for Piston that stores meta-info in config/plugins.yml rather than the version control system, and which does not tie itself directly to Subversion even when given a compatible system (like SVK). It does this by using SourceControl (itself intended as a replacement for RSCM) to handle the interface to the SCM system.
