Hi Alex,

There’s a script for this. Try this from your aspace directory:

scripts/initialize_plugin.sh [plugin_name]

… .bat if you’re on windows.

Good luck!

I've tried copying the structure from the OCLC plugin (gems/ directory containing the gem, plugin_init.rb loading the directory into $LOAD_PATH), but to no avail.  What are the best practices for including a gem in a plugin, ideally for distribution?
