USPS-intelligent-barcode

USPS-intelligent-barcode is a pure ruby gem to generate a USPS Intelligent Mail Barcode. More specifically, it generates the string of characters you should print using one of the USPS Intelligent Barcode fonts.

FORKED FROM

This project was forked from github.com/rtlong/USPS-intelligent-barcode by Ryan Taylor Long, in order to add tests and refactor. It is not a drop-in replacement: I renamed most methods and classes, and eliminated the #draw method.

INSTALL

$ gem install USPS-intelligent-barcode

EXAMPLE

#!/usr/bin/env ruby

require 'rubygems'
require 'USPS-intelligent-barcode'

barcode_id = '01'
service_type = '234'
mailer_id = '567094'
serial_number = '987654321'
routing_code = '01234567891'
barcode = Imb::Barcode.new(barcode_id,
                           service_type,
                           mailer_id,
                           serial_number,
                           routing_code)
p barcode.barcode_letters
# => "AADTFFDFTDADTAADAATFDTDDAAADDTDTTDAFADADDDTFFFDDTTTADFAAADFTDAADA"

Thanks to Ryan Taylor Long for his original work, without which I would have been lost in the USPS specification.
