Still chipping away at Ruby/Rails with my trusty Pickaxe book and thought of an interesting “learn-by-doing” project, though I don’t know if it’s even possible: capture a webpage (containing a completed form) - a snapshot, if you will - as say, a pdf, upon successful submission of said form, then save the file to a folder on the server and attach the file to a confirmation email that gets sent to me and possibly to the sender as well.
Currently I use PHP framework (MAR) to capture the form submission into a relational db, so assuming what I want to do is even possible the above functionality would need to tie into that app. Of course this doesn’t technically need to be done with Ruby, it might even make more sense to do it with PHP since the existing framework is PHP but I’m trying to go the Ruby route and besides, I’m planning to replace the MAR framework with RoR eventually.
Any who, back to the pdf snapshot: doable?
