Python cffi libjpeg-turbo bindings and helper classes.
The purpose of this package is to provide thread-safe and aware of GIL Python
bindings to libjpeg-turbo which work with numpy arrays on
Python 2, 3 and PyPy.
Tested with Python 2.7, Python 3.4 and PyPy on Ubuntu 14.04.
Covered TurboJPEG API:
so, currently, only decoding of jpeg files is possible, and
it is about 1.3 times faster than Image.open().tobytes() and
scipy.misc.imread() in a single thread and up to 9 times faster in
On Ubuntu, the shared library is included in libturbojpeg package:
sudo apt-get install libturbojpeg
On Windows, you can download installer from the official libjpeg-turbo [Sourceforge](https://sourceforge.net/projects/libjpeg-turbo/files)
repository, install it and copy turbojpeg.dll to the directory from the system PATH.
On Mac OS X, you can download the DMG from the official libjpeg-turbo [Sourceforge](https://sourceforge.net/projects/libjpeg-turbo/files)
repository and install it.
If you have a custom library which is TurboJPEG API compatible,
just call jpeg4py.initialize with tuple containing that library's file name.
To install the module run:
python -m pip install jpeg4py
python setup.py install
or just copy src/jpeg4py to any place where python interpreter will be able
to find it.
To run the tests, execute:
PYTHONPATH=src python -m nose -w tests
import jpeg4py as jpeg
import matplotlib.pyplot as pp
