Purpose of this plugin is to use Gitblit as web-based viewer (i.e. GitWeb replacement) on top of Gerrit Code Review.
As pre-requisites you need to make a custom-build of Gitblit and Wicket: the standard JARs downloaded from a public Maven repository aren't enough as they are missing some specific build parameters and constraints (i.e. shaded-jar) that are needed for a Gerrit plugin to work properly.
You need to clone Gitblit from GitHub and build it locally using the installMaven ANT target.
$ git clone https://github.com/gitblit/gitblit.git $ cd gitblit && git checkout master $ ant -DresourceFolderPrefix=static installMaven
