I have come across a strange issue when trying to install any plugins
into my rails project. When I run the 'script/plugin install' command
nothing happens. I am just presented with a blank command prompt
again. No install happens.
I'm trying to install attachment_fu and restful_authentication on Mac
OS X and am running rails 2.0.2.
Does anyone have an idea of what's going on?
Are you on a proxy or something? Or is your connection slow?
I've installed attachment_fu with no problems. It's a but slow but it
first try installing it with this:
./script/plugin install http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins/attachment_fu/
if that doesn't work, add the repository to your source list:
./script/plugin source http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins/attachment_fu/
now try installing it again, it should work. If nothing works at all,
try it from the top again, but this time, add a ' -v ' after plugin
./script/plugin -v install http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins/attachment_fu/
that is the verbose option and might give a clue as to whats wrong.
Thanks for the response, Housni. I've tried all of your suggestions
and nothing returns any output, including add the verbose flag.
As soon as I hit enter I immediately receive a blank command prompt.
I'm guessing that ruby might not be in your path...try running this
on my win32 box, it doesn't return immediately, but launches ruby. You
can also run 'which ruby' and that should dump a path to ruby.
I sometimes have the same problem, so I usually directly checkout the
whole code from the SVN repository and then manually run the
install.rb script. This works almost every time.
