How to run a local plugin in Grails 2.0?

This works for me

grails.plugin.location.shiro = "/home/dilbert/dev/plugins/grails-shiro"

Where shiro is the name of the plugin (not the name of the directory it’s in). Make sure the path to the plugin is either an absolute path or the relative path to the plugin from the application.

I’ve found that this sometimes doesn’t work if the plugin is listed in or BuildConfig.groovy, so if it is, remove it, then execute grails clean and restart the app.
