This library is wrapper for the Exiftool command-line application (www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool) written by Phil Harvey. Read and write access is done in a clean OO manner.
An installation of the Exiftool command-line application. Instructions for installation you can find under www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/install.html .
Alternatively Wil Gieseler has bundled a meta-gem that eliminates the need for a seperate Exiftool installation. Have a look at github.com/wilg/mini_exiftool_vendored or rubygems.org/gems/mini_exiftool_vendored .
First you need Exiftool (see under Requirements above). Then you can simply install the gem with
gem install mini_exiftool
respectively (on *nix sytems)
sudo gem install mini_exiftool
Alternative you can download the tarball or zip file and run
ruby setup.rb config ruby setup.rb setup sudo ruby setup.rb install
The code is also hostet in a git repository on Gitorious at gitorious.org/projects/mini_exiftool feel free to contribute!
