Create a reusable action ActionName

rails plugin new rails_admin_<action_name> -m --skip-gemfile --skip-bundle -T -O -S -J --full

Add it to your project

# Gemfile

gem 'rails_admin_<action_name>', :git => 'git://<username>/rails_admin_<action_name>.git'
# or in development mode
gem 'rails_admin_<action_name>', :path => '../rails_admin_<action_name>'
