Perl Wrapper for the DocRaptor API.


Make a new DocRaptor client using your API Key: perl my $doc_raptor = DocRaptor->new(api_key => 'YOUR_API_KEY_HERE');

Create an options object representing your request parameters: perl my $options = DocRaptor::DocOptions->new( document_url => '', is_test => 1, document_type => 'pdf', document_name => 'perl-example.pdf' );

Make a request to DocRaptor using the client: perl my $response = $doc_raptor->create($options);

The $response object is of type HTTP::Response, and thus responds to methods like #code and #content.

You can see a full example, including writing the response to disk at

Development Setup

\ below was 5.22.0 for me, but YMMV. * Install perlbrew. * Install (and switch to) perl using perlbrew: perlbrew install <version> --switch * Get a coffee/have a smoke/watch a cartoon while perl installs. * Install cpanm: perlbrew install-cpanm * (Optional, but recommended) cpanm has the concept of "module sets", so you can create one at this point if you want to isolate this from the rest of your perl module development. The command looks like perlbrew lib create perl-5.22.0@docraptor. Then switch to that with perlbrew switch perl-5.22.0@docraptor. You can remove all your modules at any time by switching back to the main perl and running perlbrew lib delete docraptor * Install the Module::Build module, so you can package and install dependencies: cpanm --verbose --self-contained --auto-cleanup --install Module::Build * Install the project dependencies (requires a modern compiler): CC=gcc cpanm --installdeps . * How's that coffee? Pretty good? Now's the time to really taste the roast. * Check if it worked – you should have a pdf file "perl-test.pdf" in the project root after: perl script/

Handy commands: perlbrew list-modules, perlbrew available
