How to run a ruby file from a plugin



SketchUp is still pretty new to me so I’m sorry if this question has a very simple answer, but I am wondering if it is possible to call another ruby script from within my plugin and run it. Basically I want to be able to run my plugin which will then run a different ruby code that is saved in a folder inside of the “plugins” folder.

The reason that I’m wondering this is because I have a plugin that creates a webpage that will generate a ruby script that defines instance variables and I want to run this ruby code before running through the rest of the code in the plugin.

Any help on this would be great.


You can require the other file using a require statement. Then call the methods defined in it. However I’d recommend wrapping both these files into the same folder and regard it as one single plugin.
