Hi, I’m in need to send a file throught an http post and examine the
response within a Rails project.
Net::HTTP is powerful but way too hard to use, I’m in need of
something slick and quick to use and manage.
Actually I’ve found Curb, which works like a charm (
http://rubyforge.org/projects/curb ) but it has a big problem: it
depends on external libraries (curlib) and doesn’t work at all on win
(which is the platform used by most of our team).
What would really be a great tool is an high level libraries which
relies on Net::HTTP o similar, which allows me to achieve my results
with really compact statements.
Curb is really smart at this:
c = Curl::Easy.new post_url c.multipart_form_post = true c.http_post( Curl::PostField.content('some_var_name', some_var_value), Curl::PostField.file('file_name', incomming_file.path) ) puts c.body_str if c.response_code == 200
Is there any other similar library that can work on multiple platforms
