The joys (and opportunities) of remote work
Whether you are a veteran Ruby on Rails developer or relatively new, the rapid application development framework that is Rails focuses on quickly getting things up and running. Sooner or later it's likely that your speed of development has made a great product, but the speed leaves a bit to be desired - and your code needs optimisation.
But now you need to know what to optimise.
At reinteractive we have recently completed a project calling for us to use OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology to recognise printed text from photographs. It's a fun problem to solve, and so here is a brief post on how you can also set up your Rails app with OCR capabilities.
Tesseract is one of the most popular OCR libraries. It's free and open source, runs on multiple platforms, supports a lot of languages, and its ongoing development is sponsored by Google. It is primarily a command line tool (although there are third-party projects that supply a GUI), and, luckily for us, there are a couple of Ruby gems out there allowing us to interact with it from a Ruby/Rails app. For this post, we will use https://github.com/meh/ruby-tesseract-ocr.
If you depend on your Ruby on Rails application to generate more than a few thousand dollars of revenue or service to your customers, getting a regular professional code audit done on your application is vital.
AJAX is a great solution that allows you to send and retrieve data from the server and update the page without having to reload the entire page.
