viapost

DESCRIPTION:

A Ruby library that wraps the Viapost SOAP API, providing an easy way of sending post (you know, real letter box post) from your applications.

The author, Tom Taylor, has no affiliation with Viapost other than thinking it's a useful service.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

Supports:

  • Supports PDF upload

  • Fetching account balance

  • Sending of post

Problems/missing:

  • Requires very strict address formats (Ensure 1, Road Name, not 1 Road Name, and so on. This is changing with an address cleanser in the upcoming Viapost 1.2 API).

  • No formatting of the PDF you send - you will need to position the address correctly for the address window.

  • No mail merge support.

SYNOPSIS:

Coming soon.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • soap4r >= 1.5.8

INSTALL:

  • sudo gem install tomtaylor-viapost
