Magnifier makes it possible to communicate with the Eskes Media Magazine Maker engine and perform various tasks (duplicate, make_preview, etc.) to projects, without having to deal with the API directly. To communicate with the API, you need an API-key, provided by the Magazine Maker.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'magnifier'

And then execute:

$ bundle

# after installation, run this command to install the settings file (.yml)
$ rails generate magnifier

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install magnifier



  • To fetch a list of all projects: Magnifier::Project.all
  • To fetch a project: Magnifier::Project.find(123)

Public methods

# duplicate
# duplicates the current project. Example:
new_project = Project.find(123).duplicate
