Octocat-spinner-32 scribd-carrierwave.gemspec


Integrates CarrierWave with Scribd. This plugin was heavily influenced by Scribd_fu.

Build Status


gem install scribd-carrierwave

With bundler:

gem 'scribd-carrierwave'


  1. Sign up for a Scribd API key here

  2. The following configuration settings need to be made (e.g. in an initializer):

    ScribdCarrierWave.config.key = {{Scribd API Key}}
    ScribdCarrierWave.config.secret = {{Scribd Secret Key}}
    ScribdCarrierWave.config.username = {{Scribd Username}}
    ScribdCarrierWave.config.password = {{Scribd Password}}
  3. In the CarrierWave uploader you wish you use with Scribd, add the line has_ipaper
  4. For each attribute the uploader is mounted as, add the following attributes to the model. For instance, if the uploader is mounted as :attachement add

    t.integer :attachment_ipaper_id
    t.string  :attachment_ipaper_access_key

Scribd-CarrierWave will now automatically upload new attachments to Scribd as a private document, and save the id and access_key on the model.

Viewing A Document

Just add <%= attachment.display_ipaper %> into your view.

To display multiple documents on the same page, you need to pass in a unique id for each one:

<%= attachment.display_ipaper({id: '_attachement1'}) %>

To get the link to the fullscreen document:

<%= attachment.fullscreen_url %>
