BuildVu Ruby Client
Convert PDF to HTML5 or SVG with Ruby using the BuildVu Ruby Client to interact with IDRsolutions' BuildVu Microservice Example.
The BuildVu Microservice Example is an open source project that allows you to convert PDF to HTML5 or SVG by running BuildVu as a web service in the cloud or on-premise.
Run the following command to install
$ gem install buildvu
Alternatively, add this line to your application's Gemfile...
...and then execute:
$ bundle install
Building the gem manually:
Run the following command to build the gem locally:
$ gem build buildvu.gemspec
You can then install it using:
$ gem install buildvu
Setup the converter details by creating a new
require 'buildvu' buildvu = BuildVu.new('localhost:8080/microservice-example')
You can now convert files by calling
# returns a URL where you can view the converted output in your web browser puts buildvu.convert('/path/to/input/file') # you can optionally specify a directory to download the converted output to buildvu.convert('/path/to/input/file', output_file_path: '/path/to/output/dir') # alternatively, you can specify a URL as input instead of uploading a file puts buildvu.convert('http://link.to/file.pdf', input_type: BuildVu::DOWNLOAD)
