Spin an image server, store images from Clipboard in single place, and prevent duplication.

Project description


Spin an image server, store images from Clipboard in single place, and prevent duplication.


  • Clone the project from GitHub
  • Navigate to the project folder and poetry install
  • Run a Python script:
from imserv.db import create_all_tables

The folder ~/Pictures/imserv will be created, and will be used for storing all images. (Tested only on Mac.)

By default, it uses PostGRESQL of the database named imserv, so you have to initialize the database first, before running the script.

The image folder can also be changed in ImServ(folder=IMG_FOLDER_PATH).


To run an image server (before running Jupyter Notebook), run in a script:


This will open the server for the website: http://localhost:8000/, which leads to:


where you can create an image directly from Clipboard. The name of the image will be randomized using UUID.

After that, if you want to use it in Jupyter Notebook:

>>> from imserv import ImServ
>>> ims = ImServ()
>>> ims.last()
'The image accessed last will be shown.'
