Redmine Plugin Support

This library is a collection of rake tasks and other scripts that will make Redmine plugin development easier. To use it, just configure it in your plugin's Rakefile:

require 'redmine_plugin_support'

RedminePluginSupport::Base.setup do |plugin|
  plugin.project_name = 'my_plugin_name'
  plugin.default_task = [:spec]
  plugin.tasks = [:doc, :release, :clean, :spec]

Configuration options

  • project_name - name of your Redmine plugin. Make sure it matches your name in the init.rb

  • tasks - list of Rake tasks to use. Valid options are:

    • :doc - rdoc tasks

    • :spec

    • :cucumber

    • :release - packaging tasks

    • :clean

    • :test - Test::Unit tasks

  • plugin_root - the location of your plugin. Default: '.' which will work fine if you're requiring this gem from a Rakefile.

  • redmine_root - the location of your Redmine root. Default: the system's REDMINE_ROOT environment or three directories down from your plugin

  • default_task

Bugs and Feature requests

Bug reports and feature requests are welcome at

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history.

    • (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
