Project description

Offload sorl thumbnail rendering to a render view.


pip install async-thumbnail



Make sure you have sorl thumbnails configured.

    # ...
    # ...

urlpatterns = [
    # ...
    path('', include('async_thumbnail.urls')),
    # ...
{% load async_thumbnail %}

<!-- Default -->
<img src="{% async_thumbnail object.image "900x600" crop="center" %}">

<!-- Save as var -->
{% async_thumbnail object.image "900x600" crop="center" as im %}
<img src="{{ im.url }}" width="{{ im.width }}" height="{{ im.height }}">


When you use the default full page caching middleware, it may be a good idea to replace it with this middleware. This prevents cache from being updated when the content contains a render URL.


In case you’re using things like source sets or lazy loading techniques this may be a bad idea.
