Must have plugins

I wanted to know what are the most common plugins that experienced rails users have in their toolbox.

I have seen * attachment_fu * acts_as_list * acts_as_versioned * restful_authentication

I am still learning and see so many similar plugins, that I have no clue what is the preffered plugin used by the community

Hi Arun,

Here are a few I use very often (that is - in almost every new Rails application): - http://activescaffold.com for a great scaffolder - acts_as_authenticated - exception_notification - ssl_requirement

Be sure to check out Piston (http://piston.rubyforge.org) if you want to track the trunk of actively developed plugins (I have a write-up here: http://blog.logeek.fr/2008/1/4/how-to-use-piston-to-ease-your-upgrades)

hope this helps !
