(This guide only covers non-docker dev install. For Docker dev see Beginners Guide to Install Discourse for Development using Docker)
If you’ve followed the instructions to set up your local discourse, you can install a plugin locally:
Stop your local server if it’s running.
Download the plugin repo and save it your
/pluginsfolder. Alternatively, you can use a symlink.
If the plugin includes migrations (you’ll see them in
db/migrate), run them with:
bundle exec rake db:migrate
Re-start the server with:
bundle exec rails server
If the plugin has settings, you can edit them by going to
http://localhost:4200/admin/pluginsand clicking on “Settings” next to its name.
If you’d like to install a plugin in production, follow this guide.
