Ruby Tika Parser
This is a simple frontend to the Java Tika parser command line jar / app.
It is the same as running:
java -server -Djava.awt.headless=true -jar tika-app-0.10.jar FileToParse.pdf
with options like --xml, --text, etc.
To install, add ruby_tika_app to your Gemfile and run
Note about installation
RubyTikaApp is a pretty big gem since it includes the ruby-tika-app jarfile. It might take a while to install.
First, you need Java installed. And it needs to be in your $PATH.
require 'ruby_tika_app' rta = RubyTikaApp.new("sample_file.pdf") puts rta.to_xml # <xml output> # You also get to_json, to_text, to_text_main, and to_metadata
bundle exec rspec spec/
NOTE: Since we are using an underlying java library to connect to external URLs we can't use a standard mocking library. The test suite starts a rack-based web server.
