Image proxy service

Project description

Library to create image proxying services.

The most basic usecase is serving images through HTTPS and stripping information from the original request, similar to what [camo]( does.

Imgservice brings it a step forward by allowing:

  • Non-http(s) sources (eg. private S3 buckets, …)
  • Image processing (resizing, cropping, …)

URL format and security

URLs are in the format:<token>, where token is a (signed, b64 encoded) object describing the image source and any required transformations.


All the configuration is done by writing a simple Python script that imports and makes use of the imgservice library.


To run the test suite:

docker-compose run –rm -e PYTHONHASHSEED=0 web py.test -vvv –cov=imgservice –cov-report=term-missing ./tests
