Simple way to load Rails plugins in Sinatra
View plugin_loader.rb
# Simple bootloader for Rails plugins in Sinatra
# This checkes the +plugin_folder+ for plugin-like bundles. For each folder it finds it will do:
# If the +lib+ folder exists: add it to our load path
# If a +init.rb+ file exists: require it
# Not very robust but it is lightweight for loading simple rails plugins
