According to Wikipedia, this can mean “hoofed animal”. Camels have hooves.

This is a gem for uploading and processing images using an Amazon Web Services stack.

It comes with a few goodies:

  • ungulate_server.rb - simple queue runner that expects a YAML-encoded job description for RMagick

  • Ungulate::FileUpload - a model for e.g. Rails that does some cryptography stuff - examples in the docs

  • A view helper for Rails: “ungulate_upload_form_for”

Note that Ungulate::FileUpload has now been superseded by the official Amazon SDK version


gem install ungulate


Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
