Ruby
Branch: master

README.md

Nguyên the PDF Field Merger

A very lightweight library that fill PDF forms using XFDF/FDF with pdftk

You could download pdftk at http://www.accesspdf.com/pdftk/

Nguyên is a fork of Jens Krämer's pdf-forms with addition of filling forms with XFDF feature.

Build Status Code Climate

EXAMPLE:

FDF creation

fdf = Nguyen::Fdf.new(key: 'value', other_key: 'other value')
# use to_fdf if you just want the FDF data, without writing it to a file
puts fdf.to_fdf
# write fdf file
fdf.save_to('path/to/file.fdf')

XFDF creation

xfdf = Nguyen::Xfdf.new(key: 'value', other_key: 'other value')
# use to_xfdf if you just want the XFDF data, without writing it to a file
puts xfdf.to_xfdf
# write xfdf file
xfdf.save_to('path/to/file.xfdf')

Query form fields and fill out PDF forms with pdftk

# adjust the pdftk path to suit your pdftk installation
pdftk = Nguyen::PdftkWrapper.new('/usr/local/bin/pdftk')

# find out the field names that are present in form.pdf
pdftk.get_field_names('path/to/form.pdf')

# take form.pdf, set the 'foo' field to 'bar' and save the document to myform.pdf

# with fdf
fdf = Nguyen::Fdf.new(foo: 'bar')
pdftk.fill_form('/path/to/form.pdf', 'myform.pdf', fdf)

# with xfdf
xfdf = Nguyen::Xfdf.new(foo: 'bar')
pdftk.fill_form('/path/to/form.pdf', 'myform.pdf', xfdf)
