== Calais A Ruby interface to the Open Calais Web Service (http://opencalais.com) == Features * Accepts documents in text/plain, text/xml and text/html format. * Basic access to the Open Calais API's Enlighten action. * Output is RDF representation of input document. * Single function ability to extract names, entities and geographies from given text. == Synopsis This is a very basic wrapper to the Open Calais API. It uses the POST endpoint and currently supports the Enlighten action. Here's a simple call: Calais.enlighten(:content => "The government of the United Kingdom has given corporations like fast food chain McDonald's the right to award high school qualifications to employees who complete a company training program.", :content_type => :text, :license_id => LICENSE_ID) This is the easiest way to get the RDF-formated response from the OpenCalais service. If you want to do something more fun like getting all sorts of fun information about a document, you can try this: Calais.process_document(:content => "The government of the United Kingdom has given corporations like fast food chain McDonald's the right to award high school qualifications to employees who complete a company training program.", :content_type => :text, :license_id => LICENSE_ID) This will return an object containing information extracted from the RDF response. == Requirements * Ruby 1.8.5 or better * Uses the following standard libraries: digest/sha1, net/http, yaml, cgi * libxml2 / libxml-ruby * curb, libcurl == Install You can install the Calais gem via Rubygems (gem install calais) or by building from source. == Authors Abhay Kumar http://opensynapse.net == Acknowledgements * Paul Legato (http://www.economaton.com/). Help all around with the new response processor and implementation of the latest API.
