    Programmatically reading .indd files.

    Trainer Jan

      Hey everyone,

       

      I've been trying to get this right, but after having called with Adobe support and sales, I've turned to the community. My situation is like so: I need to read .indd files (in that format, no .idml) to read the XMP data that's embedded within. My environment is a 64-bit Linux server with Debian 7 running, with Ruby as the language of choice for the project. Any language is OK as long as it runs on this platform. I know, however, that the Adobe InDesign license strictly prohibits reading data explicitly from .indd files and encourages use of ExtendScript. Adobe InDesign Server is a possibility, but the price is too high for our purposes.

       

      What would you recommend?
