Hot Folders & Shell Tools
« on: March 02, 2020, 10:53:24 PM »
Hi RTT, is there a way of integrating Shell Tools to work with a say hot folder?

Looking to develop an online portal, customer uploads files, then that triggers Shell Tools scripts to automatically run once file is uploaded...

It would then generate a report which would speak to the software and generate a report of say, pages in file, size, colour coverage etc.. depending on the application.

How would we go about developing this?

You can code similar scrips directly with the server backend language (e.g. node.js, PHP, etc.).
PDF-ShellTools can be registered as COM server, in order to use the API from any coding language that can use COM objects.
