Convert the heathens.


Heathen::Client

A Ruby client for the Heathen service.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'heathen-client'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install heathen-client

Usage

Set the Base URI

Before anything, you will need to set the url of the running Heathen service. Heathen::Client.client = Heathen::Client.new(base_uri: "http://<heathen url>")

Without the above line, the client will attempt to make API calls against http://localhost:9292.

Heathen::Client::pdf takes an options hash with a file or url key. The file key can map to a filesystem path string, or an instance of IO. The method returns an instance of Heathen::Client::Response.

Convert a Word document to PDF

In one shot:

Heathen::Client.pdf(file: "/path/to/word.doc").get do |data|
  File.open("/path/to/saved.pdf", "wb") do |dest|
    dest.write(data)
  end
end

For the lazy:

response = Heathen::Client.pdf(file: "/path/to/word.doc")

A little later:

File.open("/path/to/saved.pdf", "wb") do |dest|
  response.get { |data| dest.write(data) }
end

Get the original

File.open("/path/to/saved_original.doc", "wb") do |dest|
  response.get(:original) { |data| dest.write(data) }
end

Converting an image to PDF with searching/selection

response = Heathen::Client.ocr(file: "/path/to/text_image.tiff")

Downloading/saving is the same as shown above.
