Redmine plugins

by Sebastien Mirolo on Tue, 15 Nov 2011

Today I browsed through the redmine plugins directory and selected a few that might be fun to use in our projects.

Installing redmine plugins is usually straightfowrd.

$ /etc/init.d/thin stop
$ cd /var/www/redmine
$ pushd vendor/plugins
$ git clone git://
$ git clone git://
$ wget
$ unzip
$ rm
$ gem install ri_cal
$ git clone git://
$ git clone git://
$ git clone git://
$ popd
$ rake db:migrate_plugins RAILS_ENV=production
$ /etc/init.d/thin start

A Chat button is now present in the bottom right of the window. I checked "Send diff email" in the My account page. Then for a project, I checked Hudson and Meetings in page Project > Settings > Modules. The meetings menu tab appears but no Hudson. I logged in as the admin and went to the page Administration > Plugins > Hudson plugin configure but it did not seem to have any useful settings there. None-the-less an Hudson menu tab showed up for the project. I took the time to configure the other plugins on the Administration > Plugins, notably the startup page

Controller: projects
Action: projectname
Id: activity

I also wanted the "wiki edits" to be viewable by default in Activity view so I went ahead and edited the redmine ruby code directly.
