The <a href="/rails/Plugin">Plugin</a> class should be an object which provides the following methods:

  • name - used during initialisation to order the plugin (based on name and
                   the contents of <tt>config.plugins</tt>)
    
  • valid? - returns true if this plugin can be loaded
  • load_paths - each path within the returned array will be added to the $LOAD_PATH
  • load - finally ‘load’ the plugin.

These methods are expected by the Rails::Plugin::Locator and Rails::Plugin::Loader classes. The default implementation returns the lib directory as its </tt>load_paths</tt>, and evaluates init.rb when load is called.
