Some test text!
Welcome to PDFTron. Currently, Ruby for the PDFTron SDK is only supported on Linux.
This guide will help you run PDFTron samples and integrate a free trial of the PDFTron SDK into Ruby application on macOS. Your free trial includes unlimited trial usage and support from solution engineers.
There are two ways to use PDFTron with Ruby:
This guide will help you get started using the precompiled Ruby wrappers.
PDFTron precompiled Python/Ruby SDK for macOS:
/PDFNetC/Libdirectory of the Python SDK download and execute:
Run a specific sample
RUBYfolder in the sample, for example
Run all samples
/Samplesand execute the
The tests will run one by one.
This section will show you how to use our SDK to create a simple PDFTron "Hello World!" application. It will create a document with one blank page and save it as a linearized PDF in its running directory.
Navigate to your
/Samples directory and make a new directory called
myApp (if it does not exist already). This guide will assume your application is named myApp. For organization, create a new directory inside
Navigate inside that
RUBY folder and create a new Ruby file called
myApp.rb. Open it with your favorite text editor and paste this into it:
require '../../../PDFNetC/Lib/PDFNetRuby' include PDFNetRuby $stdout.sync = true PDFNet.Initialize() # PDFNet must be initialized before accessing any PDFTron API doc = PDFDoc.new() page = doc.PageCreate() # Start a new page doc.PagePushBack(page) # Add the page to the document doc.Save("output.pdf", SDFDoc::E_linearized); # Save the document as a linearized PDF puts "Hello World!"
Run your application by executing
ruby myApp.rb. If all goes well, your console should output:
PDFNet is running in demo mode. Permission: write Hello World!
output.pdf that the program output in the same directory. It should be a PDF with one blank page.
