An npm/nodejs wrapper for imagesnap

imagesnap is a tool for capturing webcam photos from the command line, written by Robert Harder. (Thanks!)

imagesnapjs is first a wrapper, for making imagesnap installation as easy as npm i -g imagesnapjs, and second, an npm dependency for capturing webcam shots from nodejs applications.

As a command line tool

$ npm install -g imagesnapjs

see the original documentation or just type imagesnap -h.

As an npm dependency

$ npm install imagesnapjs

Or require it from your package.json

var imagesnapjs = require('imagesnapjs');

imagesnapjs.capture('/Users/dany/image.jpg', function(err) {
  console.log(err ? err : 'Success!');

(To be further developed).
