tiny_mce installer should not copy .svn directories

Reported by Jim Haungs | March 3rd, 2010 @ 07:32 PM

If you install the plugin, and immediately check it into SVN, before the rake installer task runs, the installer file copier copies the .SVN directories from vendor/plugins/tiny_mce to public/javascripts/tiny_mce, which royally screws up subversion.

For the plugin user, the correct sequence is to install the plugin, run the rake task, then check both vendor/plugins/tiny_mce and public/javascripts/tiny_mce into subversion. But if you do any of this in the wrong order, all hell breaks loose.

The correct way to fix this is to exclude (recursively) any .SVN directories you find during the file copy. Using FileUtils.cp_r is too general.

    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    We accept patches.

    Alternatives:

    Either:

    Use the tiny_mce gem

    Or:

    Switch to something that doesn't add crap to each directory. Git for example.
