Render local images in the system using datasette plugin


Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

$ datasette install datasette-render-local-images


Render local system images in the datasette displayed HTML. The plugin reads the image and adds the base64 encoded data to src attribute, the cell looks like <img src="data:image/png;base64,A.." height="-1" width="-1">

By default plugin will figure out image and render with default height and width of the image.

To modify the image size and width, pass the configuration via metadata.json

    "plugins": {
        "datasette-render-local-images": {
            "height": 150,
            "width": 150

When the local image path is missing or no image specified in the path, the plugin will not render the value.

Note: While running datasette command don't forget to pass the metadata file using -m option like datasette dataset.db -m metadata.json.

Below screenshoot is from the sample table.
