Process Adobe Captivate SWF files with Ruby on Rails 3.0+
After completing a Captivate quiz, a “captivate_results” directory is auto-created beneath the “doc” directory of your project.
In this “captivate_results” directory, XML files containing the Captivate quiz results will also be auto-created.
After installation, take a Captivate quiz and check for a generated XML file in 'doc/captivate_results/'. You can then use the Nokogiri gem to parse the results.
Rails >= 3.0
In your Captivate instance, you must specify a target URL of “www.example.com/internalreport”
Detailed instructions on how to set this up on the Captivate end can be found at: tv.adobe.com/watch/publish-and-track-results/reporting-using-lms-or-internal-server/
gem install ruby_captivate
Add the gem to your gemfile and then run the generator:
rails generate ruby_captivate:install
This will create a route, a captivate_results_controller, and a process_results view file. The view file is only a stub file as Adobe Captivate will show your users an 'unknown error' popup without one due to Rails complaining about the lack of a view template. A 'skip_before_filter' is added to the controller, otherwise Rails won't be able to verify the CSRF token coming from Captivate.
