Some Useful Plugins for RoR Projects

Previously I used a few plugins in RoR projects including ScrumPad. On a more recent work, I found the following plugins to be really useful and easy to get started:-

1. I18n: Rails Internationalization
2. Seed-fu: Initial data loading for application  (e.g. admin user, product categories)
Tutorial http://github.com/mbleigh/seed-fu A support is now built in for Rails 2.3.4
3. Thinking-sphinx: Full text search
4. Paperclip: File and image upload made hassle free

If you looking for any of the above for features in your app, I suggest you give these plugins a try. It should be good for most of the apps unless you have some really unique needs.

Write in comments if you would like to share some other useful RoR plugins.
