PDF Archive is a simple PDF storage and retrieval system. Uploading a PDF will store it, create a preview image for search listings, and extract the text from it so it can be indexed for search.
git clone git://github.com/jonmagic/pdf_archive.git cd pdf_archive gem install bundle bundle
Run the tests
bundle exec rake
Run the app and background worker
gem install foreman foreman start
You can now open the app in your browser http://localhost:3000
Running on Heroku
Running this on Heroku requires the following steps:
Step 1: Create the app on the Heroku Cedar stack
gem install heroku heroku apps:create app_name --stack cedar
We also need to configure it to run in production
heroku config:add RACK_ENV=production
Step 2: Add a MongoDB Addon
The MongoHQ or MongoLab Addons will give us a small free MongoDB instance for storing our documents.
heroku addons:add mongohq:free
heroku addons:add mongolab:starter
Step 3: Configure For S3
First setup an Amazon AWS account, get your key, secret, and create a bucket. Then take those values and configure the environment variables on Heroku.
heroku config:add AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=<aws_access_key_id> \ AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=<aws_secret_access_key> \ BUCKET_NAME=<bucket_name>
Step 4: Deploy to Heroku
git push heroku master
When it is finished deploying it will give you the url to your app. Visit in the browser and enjoy!
