Extensions

Is there an Extension compatibility list around. I recently installed
the QueueDeactivatedScrip which work very well, then installed the
EmailCompletion extention which also works well only to find that my
QueueDeactivatedScrip no longer worked. I there anyway of determining
compatibility between extensions? or is it mostly trial and error? How
do troubleshoot a broken Extension?

First thing I always check on multiple extensions is whether they are all in the same “Set(@Plugins, …)” line in the RT_SiteConfig.pm file. Multiple Set Plugins lines will override rather than append.

Yes the one from github.
And yes I have mutiple plug in lines.

Set(@Plugins,(qw(RT::FM)));
Set(@Plugins,(qw(RTx::EmailCompletion)));
Set(@Plugins,(qw(RT::Extension::ToggleSuperUser)));
Set(@Plugins,(qw(RT::Extension::QueueDeactivatedScrips)));
How should I list this? And do I reinstall then after I correct this, or
just correct the “Set(@Plugins, …)” line and restart Apache?

I think it should just be
Set(@Plugins,(qw(RT::FM RTx::EmailCompletion RT::Extension::ToggleSuperUser RT::Extension::QueueDeactivatedScrips)));

No reinstall necessary; just bounce Apache.

‘qw’ takes a space-separated list and turns it into the quoted list format needed for the Set command.

Hello,

i searched the whole Mailinglist for a correct syntax to ceate a new

Is there any documentation somewhere on how to package up the extensions -
not how to write them, but how to do the other stuff like the Makefile.PL
and META.yml so that it installs. I tried just copying the Makefile.PL and
MANIFEST and META.yml from another project, but my html files didn’t copy
over. (I’m just starting the project, so all I have to install is some
html mock-ups.)

Several of us use Dist-Zilla-MintingProfile-RTx which will generate
a Makefile.PL and some other boring parts of RT extensions. You also
need Module-Install-RTx on your development box so that the pieces
of the extension that know where to put files for RT are included in
the tarball.

of the extension that know where to put files for RT are included in

Ok, I installed Dist-Zilla-MintingProfile-RTx using “perl -MCPAN -e shell”,
and it dragged in about a zillion required modules. Now the dzil.org page
says that I use “dzil new” to create a new directory to get started, and I
just need to do “dzil new RTx::FooBar”, but I get a bunch of warnings:
dzil new RTx::CareFirst
[DZ] making target dir
/home/ptomblin/src/rt-extension-carefirst/RTx-CareFirst
[DZ] writing files to
/home/ptomblin/src/rt-extension-carefirst/RTx-CareFirst

guess at license from Pod; giving up at
/usr/local/lib/perl/5.12.4/Moose/Meta/Method/Delegation.pm line 110

and then it creates a directory RTx-FooBar, and in that an empty dist.ini
file and skeleton lib/RTx/FooBar.pm. I couldn’t find any documentation on
how to generate this “%Rights stash” or config.

So instead I tried following the manual page on
http://search.cpan.org/~falcone/Dist-Zilla-MintingProfile-RTx-0.05/lib/Dist/Zilla/MintingProfile/RTx.pmand
so I tried
“dzil new -P RTx RTx::FooBar” and instead I got even more errors and
warnings:
[DZ] making target dir /home/ptomblin/src/rt-extension-carefirst/RTx-FooBar
[DZ] Unable to find main_module in the distribution
[DZ] We tried to guess ‘lib/RTx/FooBar.pm’ but no file like that existed

and this time the RTx-FooBar directory is empty. I feel like I’m trying to
