Plugins Restful_authentication can't install

I'm a fairly new programmer, and I jump back and forth between PHP C#
and Ruby.
I'm trying to install a restful-authentication plugin but I can't get it
to install into my ruby directory. I have looked it up and folowed the
tutorials but no luck.

I've tried

C:\ruby>script/plugin source
http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins/

'script' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\ruby>ruby install
git://github.com/technoweenie/restful-authentication.git
ruby: No such file or directory -- install (LoadError)

I'm working from windowsXP 64 platform also using Netbeans as my ide.

I know it's simple ..but i'm stuck lol

ok i've gotten some succsess but I can't find plugin in now..

I had to go to the actual folder project was in for it to recognize
scripting

C:\Documents and
Settings\Administrator\MyDocuments\NetBeansProjects\sms_web_app>
ruby script/plugin install
:http://github.com/technoweenie/restful-authentication
Plugin not found:
[":http://github.com/technoweenie/restful-authentication"]

ok now installs a folder with no code in it with

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My
Documents\NetBeansProjects\sms_web_app>ruby script/plugin install
http://github.com/technoweenie/restful-authentication.git

help!... lol

Stop trying. restful-authentication is garbage due to its overreliance
on unmaintainable generated code. Use Authlogic or something reasonable
instead. :slight_smile:

Of course it isn't. The script directory lives inside your Rails app.
You need to be at the root directory of your Rails application to run
that. Your prompt implies that you are not in that directory.

And you just want script/plugin install, not script/plugin source.

I would recommend that you drop NetBeans. Rails works best without an
IDE in my opinion. Just use a good editor (I like KomodoEdit, but there
are many others).

I'd also recommend dropping Windows; too much of Rails relies on a *nix
toolset. There are some ready-to-go Rails *nix VMs out there; I've been
hearing good things about VirtualRails.

Do you have a Git client installed? If not, then you won't be able to
install plugins from Git repositories.

I'm not sure about the git client... none of the sites I've been
googling say any thing about that...i'll check it out ...
but I've got to this point

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My
Documents\NetBeansProjects\sms_web_app>ruby scr
ipt/plugin source http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins
Added 1 repositories.

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My
Documents\NetBeansProjects\sms_web_app>ruby scr
ipt/plugin install restful_authentication
Plugin not found: ["restful_authentication"]

So as far as I can tell I'm looking were every one says to look for the
plug in ... but it's not finding it there....

I look into git clients
