Here we list a few of our favourite Redmine Plugins and how to install them. There are loads more to choose from in the redmine plugins directory.
Google Apps Login
Login to Redmine with your Google Apps domain user. Awesome.
~ # emerge -av dev-ruby/ruby-openid - OR - ~ # gem install ruby-openid ruby-openid-apps-discovery
Now install the google_apps plugin
~ # cd /opt/redmine ~ # git clone git://github.com/waj/redmine_google_apps.git vendor/plugins/google_apps
Restart Apache/Redmine then login with your administrator account, go to the Administration section and now you should see the 'Google Apps' link. Add your Google Apps domain like 'example.com'. (Note, it's not www.example.com).
