I noticed that will_paginate is now being distributed as a plugin. In the readme, it states:
"You should switch to using the gem:
gem install will_paginate
After that, you can remove the plugin from your application and add a simple require to the end of config/environment.rb:
I am want to reuse code and am trying to understand the advantages of using a gem vs a plugin. I thought the "rails way" is to use plugins but now that I see will_paginate is using a gem, I am trying to understand what advantages gem distributions have for use in rails projects?
