10 must-have Rails plugins I was talking to Tim the other day about auditing Rails projects, and how we see a lot of Rails projects that reinvent the wheel instead of using plugins. The obvious follow-up question, of course, is "What plugins (or gems) should we be using?" Below I list ten plugins that we use regularly, and a brief reason why you might want to, too. fixture_replacement2 : fixtures are difficult to maintain. There is no "one size fits all solution," but we have found this to be a big help. tarantula : A single test can find a lot of bugs, if that single test visits every link in your app, tries to submit bad data, and polices your output HTML. test_spec_on_rails : specs are better than tests. permalink_fu : meaningful URLs for your objects. safe_erb : don't trust external data!
