Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'archdown'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install archdown

Usage

Download from the command-line:

$ gem install archdown
$ archdown -y 1700-1830

# ...
# downloads a lot of books into ./library
# ...

More advanced usage: use as a Ruby library. Here's an example of a query that downloads a book by archive.org identifier:

d = Archdown::Download.new('library',
  :filters => ["identifier:firstbooknapole00gruagoog"])

d.go!{ |metadata, librarian| puts m.inspect }

Or a set of books within a range of years:

d = Archdown::Download.new('library',
  :start_year => 1800, :end_year => 1850)

d.go!{ |metadata, librarian| puts m.inspect }

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release to create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
