About the author:

Alex Bevilacqua is skilled in Ruby, Python, C#, Flash, Flex, JavaScript, and more, with over 10 years of experience in the field. He is a passionate and enthusiastic open source developer. He is also the author of a number of Redmine extensions and plugins; two of the most popular being the Redmine Knowledgebase and the Redmine Dropbox Attachments plugin.

Redmine is a flexible project management web application that is cross-platform and cross-database. Redmine handles multiple projects and provides integrated project management features, issue tracking, and support for various version control systems.

This practical guide provides an overview of the tools available to potential plugin authors who want to extend and enhance a product to work their way. It shows readers how custom updates can be tied into project and how to extend system activity streams through existing models, views, and controllers through the use of hooks. Through a recurring case study, plugin models are made searchable and custom permissions and security are discussed. The real-world examples provided in the book give readers the necessary skills to quickly and efficiently extend products using plugins.

This book is designed to teach developers who have existing Ruby on Rails experience on how they can properly extend Redmine through custom plugins. It is intended for those who want to build custom functionality into the Redmine project management platform.
