Overview

Paperclip processors allow you to modify attached files when they are attached in any way you are able. Paperclip itself uses command-line programs for its included Thumbnail processor, but custom processors are not required to follow suit.

Processors are required to be defined inside the Paperclip module and are also required to be a subclass of Paperclip::Processor. There is only one method you must implement to properly be a subclass: #make, but #initialize may also be of use. #initialize accepts 3 arguments: the file that will be operated on (which is an instance of File), a hash of options that were defined in has_attached_file's style hash, and the Paperclip::Attachment itself. These are set as instance variables that can be used within `#make`.

#make must return an instance of File (Tempfile is acceptable) which contains the results of the processing.

See Paperclip.run for more information about using command-line utilities from within Processors.
