Persian Bechasboon

Languages which have connecting characters are not well-supported by many programming libraries. Persian language is one of them. I try to use prawn as a PDF generator to create a report in pdf format. But because of above mentioned problem it's failed. So I found arabic-letter-connector which solve this problem for arabic language. I use this gem and provide Persian bechasboonn gem to add Persian support when using ruby's libraries like prawn.

Acknowledgment

Thanks to arabic-letter-connector by (Ahmed Nasser).

Installation

Run:

gem install persian-bechasboon

Then require it with:

require 'persian-bechasboon'

Usage

require 'prawn'
require 'persian-bechasboon'
Prawn::Document.generate("persian.pdf") do
    text_direction :rtl
    font("/path/to/persian/font.ttf") do # For example: B Nazanin
        text "درود دنیا".connect_persian_letters
    end
end

TODO

  • Using persian fonts which does not contain english characters, like B Nazanin, when prawn renders pdf file, english alphabets shown as a box.
  • Using fonts which contain english chararacters, like Tahoma, when prawn renders pdf file, because of text direction, english words rendered in right to left direction.
