= osxscreenshot

* http://github.com/topfunky/osxscreenshot

== DESCRIPTION:

A Ruby wrapper around webkit2png.py to easily and programmatically
capture screenshots of websites, then crop and resize them. Mac OS X
only.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Uses the Python built-in to Mac OS X.
* You may be able to use snapurl instead of webkit2png.py: http://gemcutter.org/gems/snapurl
* See examples in use at http://blog.peepcode.com/archives and http://news.peepcode.com/

== REQUIREMENTS:

* Uses Python's Cocoa support (standard in Mac OS X). 
* Uses ImageMagick's command-line tools to resize the image (mogrify). See http://github.com/masterkain/ImageMagick-sl. I hope to replace this with MacRuby or RubyCocoa instead.

== INSTALL:

* gem install osxscreenshot

== DEVELOPERS:

Call the +capture+ method which returns the path to a tempfile containing the image:

    file_path = OSX::Screenshot.capture("http://peepcode.com")
    # => "/tmp/20293-202020293-2020-full.png" at 320x480

Or, pass some (optional) options.

    file_path =
      OSX::Screenshot.capture(my_url, {
                         :tmpdir     => "#{Sinatra::Application.root}/tmp",
                         :webkit2png => "#{Sinatra::Application.root}/bin/webkit2png.py",
                         :mogrify    => "/opt/local/bin/mogrify",
                         :width      => 220,
                         :height     => 270
                       })
    system "mv #{file_path} #{permanent_path}"
