If you’re using Bundler, you can simply add gem ‘pspdfkit’ to your Gemfile. See more on https://github.com/tmeinlschmidt/rm-pspdfkit
As I’ve started using this famous framework, I’d like to use it in my rubymotion application. So, there’s my setup to include this fmw in rubymotion project
- extract PSPDFKit anywhere
- create directory vendor in your RM project
- create symbolic link from your unzipped PSPDFKit to vendor/PSPDFKit.framework
cd vendor ln -s ../../pdf/Products/PSPDFKit.embeddedframework/PSPDFKit.framework ./ cd ../resources ln -s ../../pdf/Products/PSPDFKit.embeddedframework/Resources/PSPDFKit.bundle ./
and modify Rakefile accordingly
app.vendor_project('vendor/PSPDFKit.framework', :static, products: ['PSPDFKit'], headers_dir: 'Headers') app.libs << '/usr/lib/libz.1.1.3.dylib' app.frameworks += %w(MessageUI AssetsLibrary MediaPlayer PSPDFKit)
try rake , it should link and start simulator.
Add some PDF file into your app resources folder.
And then you can try to modify app/app_delegate.rb with simple example:
class AppDelegate def application(application, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:launchOptions) documentURL = NSBundle.mainBundle.resourceURL.URLByAppendingPathComponent "DevelopersGuide.pdf" @document = PSPDFDocument.PDFDocumentWithURL documentURL pdfController = PSPDFViewController.alloc.initWithDocument @document navController = UINavigationController.alloc.initWithRootViewController pdfController @window = UIWindow.alloc.initWithFrame(UIScreen.mainScreen.bounds) @window.makeKeyAndVisible @window.rootViewController = navController end end

Hey Tom – thanks for this. Really quite helpful for me.
One question – how would go able about enabling the options – such as print & annotations?
you have to check examples in PSPDFKit (PSPDFCatalog/Annotations). This gem is only for enabling PSPDFKit in RubyMotion application, doesn’t provide any other functionality (maybe later I’ll write some wrapper around PSPDFKit)
Hi, I appreciate the information and efforts which you offered.
About this article, which version did you use PSPDFKit?
I have tried with version 1 of PSPDFKit, but error has occurred as below:
2013-04-12 05:03:18.636 test01[11042:c07] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception ‘NSRangeException’, reason: ‘Cannot remove an observer for the key path “selectedSegmentIndex” from because it is not registered as an observer.’
Please let me know your advise.
Hi, I have tried with version2 demo of PSPDFKit, and I could get correct result.
So please remove posted comments by me.
