Extending Rails with Plugins

A session at QCon London 2007

Friday 16th March, 2007

9:45am to 10:45am (GMT)

One of the most important and useful aspects of the Rails framework is it's ability to be extended using plugins. Thanks to the flexibility and power of Ruby, almost any aspect of Rails can be altered to suit the needs of a particular application.

This presentation will help give developers the boost that's often required to get up to speed developing plugins. We'll cover the hooks that Rails' plugin mechanism makes available, and how to put them to best use in practice with practical examples.

Once we've covered the groundwork, we'll start to look at more advanced programming techniques for sharing code (and other files) between Rails applications. With a few key programming techniques under our belt, we can use plugins to alter and enhance the Rails framework itself.
