Apache Tika Server w/ Tesseract in Docker
Sets up a container based on
- Apache Tika Server - latest development version (1.13-SNAPSHOT currently)
- Tesseract, with English and German languages
If you prefer the latest stable version of Tika-server (including OCR via Tesseract), you may want to consider
To use the image from the Docker registry, just do:
sudo docker run -d -p 9998:9998 mattfullerton/tika-tesseract-docker
N.B.: This automated build has a problem preventing the process from running. An alternative, manually built repository is at mattfullerton/tika-tesseract-docker-no-automation, or you may have success building yourself (below), or not. I am trying to understand how this can happen!
I.e., alternatively try:
sudo docker run -d -p 9998:9998 mattfullerton/tika-tesseract-docker-no-automation
To build and run the container, do the following:
sudo docker build -t tika github.com/mattfullerton/tika sudo docker run -d -p 9998:9998 tika
Test with commands like:
curl -T testpdf.pdf http://localhost:9998/tika curl -T multipage_tiff_example.tif http://localhost:9998/tika
The second command uses OCR.
