Redmine plugins?

Added by Reinout van Schouwen over 11 years ago

Hi,

I've read the Plugin Tutorial. However, when I execute the plugin generator, I get the following error:

"Couldn't find 'redmine_plugin' generator"

This happens both for the 0.7 stable branch and trunk.

Can anybody help me out?

Thanks,

Hey,
according to my knowledge the Redmine plugin and hook system is under development and can be found in the work/hooks branch at the moment.
See at http://www.redmine.org/repositories/browse/redmine/branches/work/hooks or http://redmine.rubyforge.org/svn/branches/work/hooks.

Bernd Lommerzheim is correct, the plugin and plugin generator development is happening in the a work branch right now. You can use that branch if you want to try out the tutorial (it's a work in progress also).

Thanks. I didn't realize this was still work-in-progress.
If I want to extend the functionality of Redmine, is creating a plugin the right way to go?

Yes, plugins are an easy way to extend Redmine and add new features. If you need help with them, post in the forums and I'll try to lend a hand.

Couple of tips:

  • Try to develop using svn trunk - That's where new plugin API and support will appear first
  • Use my Empty Plugin to start your plugin - It's just the sample plugin with all the sample code removed.
  • Read other plugins' code - I have several Redmine plugins on GitHub, some haven't been officially released and added to the Redmine wiki yet. There are also several others that can be searched for.

When will the plugin generator be integrated into a regular release?
