Page Glimpse

PageGlimpse.com is a SaaS provider which has a REST API for downloading website thumbnails by URI. This library wraps that interface to provide a Ruby-like means of interacting with it.

Note: The author of this gem is entirely unaffiliated with the PageGlimpse.com web service.

Getting Started

The following example shows how to use the PageGlimpse API:

gem 'page_glimpse'
require 'page_glimpse'

PageGlimpse.developer_key = 'abc123def456ghi789jkl123mno456pq'

if PageGlimpse.exist?('http://www.github.com')
  image = PageGlimpse.get('http://www.github.com')
  puts "Image type:     #{image.content_type}"    # => "image/jpeg"
  puts "Image size:     #{image.content_length}"  # => 2572
  puts "Image filename: #{image.filename}"        # => nil or a name

  # Save the transmitted binary (image.content) as a local file
  File.open('github.jpg', File::CREAT|File::WRONLY|File::TRUNC) do |file|
    file.write image.content
  end
else
  PageGlimpse.queue('http://www.github.com')
  # and then try back later ...
end
