Installing a Rails plugin from a github branch

Posted by javier ramirez on October 13, 2010

Today I wanted to install a plugin from github into a rails project. So far so good, you would think. You only need to run script/plugin install and start coding right away.

Unfortunately, the branch of the plugin I need is not the master one, because this applications runs on rails 2.3.x and the master branch has been adapted to rails 3 already.

I could just download the tar file from github, or I could make a git clone and checkout the branch I wanted.. but it turns out I don’t need to do any of those, because old good script/plugin has an option to checkout a specific branch

script/plugin install http://github.com/rails/exception_notification.git -r 2-3-stable

And I can start coding right away.. and that’s exactly what I’m going to do after publishing this post.

  2. hey my spammy friend.. just a quick note to let you know wordpress adds a “nofollow” to all the links, so you are not getting any SEO benefits for including your shitty comments here

    FYI, this doesn’t work in Rails 3. They changed the flag and I can never remember what it is.

    Does your website have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d
    like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some creative ideas for your
    blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and
    I look forward to seeing it develop over time.
