Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com
The book is very easy and fast to read, with a plain and direct language that tries to explain every aspect of Redmine's plugin development. The book is short,
so you shouldn't expect most of it, so don't expect learning anthing about Redmine or Ruby on Rails because it isn't the goal of the book. It seems obvious but
this is not a book for novices on Ruby on Rails applications, you must know how this apps works to develop extensions for Redmine because you'll have to know
how Redmine works as well.
"The good things of the book"
There are several good things in this book, first of all the direct and plain language. The book is thought as a large tutorial from the beginning to the end.
You could do a new plugin step by step. And it explains the most important parts of Redmine's plugins as hooks, permissions & security or how to do new models
searchables. The explanation of hooks is the most important part of the book, very worthwhile to read.
Also I like the permissions & security section and the importance the author gives to the testing side of the development. In this last section you'll find
valuables ideas about testing and continuous integration (CI) tools like Travis (CI).
"The bad parts of the book2
Also this book have some bad things... although not too bad. First of all it tries to explain the development of plugins using as example another plugin (KnowledgeBase),
but you must refer to GitHub repository to see the code examples, so you need a browser if you want to see the code. That is not very important for all people, but
I think sometimes is good to have the code in the book so you don't need to browse any page.
Another missing aspect about plugins is the internazionalization. The book covers basic aspects of the development like 'Bundle' that are common to every Ruby on
Rails application, so treating things as internazionalization is a must too... I know it because most of the contributions to my public plugin has been translations...
although it's very easy to do, it should have been covered in the book.
"Redmine Plugin Extension and Development" is a very good book for everyone that wants to write extensions for Redmine. After reading this book I planned some changes
on the plugins I've wrote because I've learned very interesting things from it. You can read it in less than a week in your spare time, so it isn't a lost time.
This book highlights the authors perspective on building a plugin from his experiences building the Knowlegebase plugin for Redmine. It covers he basics as well as some of the interesting aspects you’ll likely need like hooking into Redmine itself and working with permissions along with several other aspects you may or may not need (e.g. file attachments, integrating with the activity stream, modifying views, etc.). The end of the book wraps up with a quick overview of writing tests, although it’s more overview than something as comprehensive as the other parts of the book.
Who this Book Works Well For
This book is well written for most beginning audiences. It doesn't have extra fluff and get’s straight to the point. It’s concise almost like a cookbook, but still reads well if you like casual perusal. Basically anyone wanting to build a Redmine plugin will probably get something out of it.
What This Book Isn't
This is not a book to take a beginner to Redmine and Ruby into developing Redmine plugins without some effort. You won’t get by very easily if you don’t have a basic knowledge of Ruby and preferably of Rails. You will likely have to pull information from other sources or stumble around yourself a bit. That said it’s something manageable as the concepts and ideas underlying everything are pretty easy to figure out, and the book does seem to take you gently through the Rails aspects.
If you are looking for a book in this niche of development and/or are developing a new Redmine plugin this is a great one to have at hand. It’ll save a bunch of time and effort sieving various documentation especially for some of the nuances you run into with normal plugin development.
