Category:Plugin API
Target version:-


I develop a plugin that requires Ajax.
I've put my scripts to plugin/assets folder.
It's very inconvenient to develop a plugin since I have to reload redmine each time I change my scripts.
It would be great to reload plugin assets on each request.

As a workaround, you can call Redmine::Plugin.mirror_assets(:your_plugin) from your plugin on each request when running in development environment.

Other idea as a workaround, you can symlink public/plugin_assets/<your plugin> to plugins/<your plugin>/assets if you're on Linux, any *nix or MacOS.. I don't know if there's something similar on Windows.
