I’m struggling with getting mupdf functioning on heroku and wondering if anyone can provide some details (I’m assuming Basecamp has it functioning…and, I believe they are hosted on Heroku).
I’ve upgraded to rails 5.2 and am implementing ActiveStorage. I have successfully installed mutool locally using homebrew and everything works great. However, PDFs do not process on Heroku.
mutool is a bit confusing. Rails docs require “mutool”, Homebrew installs “mupdf-tools”, Heroku wants “mupdf”.
I have successfully installed apt and mupdf on heroku following these steps:
add a new Aptfile to the root of my application with only “mupdf” listed
commit and push the Aptfile
THEN run heroku buildpacks:add --index 1 https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-apt
push again so heroku will finish installing apt and mupdf
mupdf builds successful during the push
heroku buildpacks now returns
If I refresh a page calling for a variant on a PDF, the image fails to process and the job kicks back the following error:
Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory - mutool
It seems mutool and mupdf are synonomous…so, I tried swapping out mutool for mupdf in my Aptfile…that failed to build from "…not found’.
Anyone know what action I need to take?
PS: This is part of implementing rails 5.2 using ActiveStorage.
I added mupdf-tools to Aptfile and that seems to fix the “no such file or directory” error. I don’t know for sure because a new errors surfaces
