…Just got done prepping a fairly major release of Substruct, the first and only open-source RoR e-commerce platform.
This release updates Substruct to Rails 2 / Engines 2, replaces file_column with attachment_fu, AND is the initial release that will be distributed in archive form. Sorry no PayPal IPN support yet – within the next few days hopefully…
Shouts out to Luke Ludwig for his contribution of the attachment_fu patch.
From now on, all new people to Substruct are recommended to download the latest tar/gzipped archive avaliable here.
New install instructions have been placed on the site…and are much easier than before.
Now the project even includes a rake task that checks if you have the correct gems installed.
I have only tested here on my OS X box, so hopefully things will go smooth on Windows as well.
Version 0.97 --------------------------------------- Added: 1. Added nice installer rake task 2. Upgrade to Rails 2.0.2 / Engines v2 3. Images and uploads switched from using file_column and rmagick to using attachment_fu and mini_magick. Upgrade steps: 1. Make sure you have the mini_magick and mime-types gems installed. a. sudo gem install mini_magick b. sudo gem install mime-types * Note: mime-types gem is only needed to upgrade, but is not needed after the upgrade is complete. 2. Back up your database just in case. * mysql example: mysqldump -u USERNAME -p DATABASE_NAME > backup.sql 3. script/generate plugin_migration 4. rake db:migrate * All of your uploads and images will be copied to a new location. Since it is a copy it is non-destructive, leaving the originals in their place. 5. Check out the new environment.rb file in the vendor/plugins/substruct/config directory.
