Features:

  • generate thumabnails for images storaged on AWS S3 through HTTP (uses imagemagick)
  • caching support on both hard-disk & S3
  • multi bucket & account support (checkout /config/buckets/)
  • user-defined thumbanil schemas support (checkout /config/schemas/)

Usage (command-line):

  1. Install ImageMagick (for processing images) http://www.imagemagick.org/script/index.php
  2. Install Node http://nodejs.org/
  3. Install thumbnaild
    npm install -g thumbnaild
    
  4. Create a folder for thumbnaild server
    thumbnaild install <folder path>
    
  5. Modify the config files in /config/buckets & /config/schemas under the you just entered

  6. Kick off the thumbnail server

    cd <folder path>
    thumbnaild start [--port <port defaults to 8011>]
    
  7. Your thumbnail can now be accessed via
    http://<your server name>:8011/<thumbnail schema>/<s3 bucket name>/<s3 image full path>
    

Usage (programmaticlly)

global.THUMBNAILD_HOME = 'your thumbnaild home folder'; // where thumbnaild will read bucket & schema configuration & store cache files
var thumbnaild = require('thumbnaild');
var app = express();
app.get('/:schema/:bucket/*', thumbnaild.getThumbnail);

Planing:

  • support for other storage system other than S3 (mogilefs, etc)
  • more testcases
  • more documents
