piston and git for the win
Piston has had support for git (both importing from, and into) for a little over a month.
Before that, I felt like developing a rails app in git was a bit painful. Considering most plugins are kept in subversion, you’re only real option is using
svn export to install plugins, and check that into git. There was braid, but I really didn’t have any luck with it.
But, like I said, it’s all good now. It hasn’t been officially released (ie as gems), but you can build and install it yourself easily enough.
$ git clone git://github.com/francois/piston.git $ sudo gem install -y main open4 log4r $ cd piston $ sudo rake install_gem
Pretty straight forward to use.
$ cd vendor/plugins $ piston import git://github.com/technoweenie/restful-authentication.git INFO main: Guessing the repository type INFO main: Guessing the working copy type INFO main: Checking out the repository INFO main: Copying from Piston::Revision(git://github.com/technoweenie/restful-authentication.git@42083ffa31e0a9792472780854ddd81bcc9b2f61) INFO main: Checked out "git://github.com/technoweenie/restful-authentication.git" 42083ff to "restful-authentication"
And since it’s since it’s being developed in a git repository, and on GitHub, it’s extremely easy to start contributing.
I mean, if I can contribute something, I’m sure you can pull it off too :)
