Sashimi is a Rails plugins manager.

It allows to install your favourite plugins in a local repository and add them to your Rails apps.

The main goal is to allow the plugins offline installation.


$ (sudo) gem install jodosha-sashimi --source=http://gems.github.com


Install a plugin from a subversion URL:

$ sashimi install http://dev.rubyonrails.com/svn/rails/plugins/continuous_builder

Install a plugin from a git URL:

$ sashimi install git://github.com/jodosha/click-to-globalize.git

Uninstall a plugin:

$ sashimi uninstall continuous_builder

Update a plugin:

$ sashimi update click-to-globalize

List all installed plugins:

$ sashimi list

Add installed plugin(s) to a Rails app:

$ sashimi add click-to-globalize
