DarkroomJS Image Editing for Web

This module provides a DarkroomJS (v2.0.1) web widget for use with image fields. It also adds a Darkroom button to the normal image widget, which can be used to edit the image via Darkroom in a modal.

The widget currently supports the following operations and can be extended to allow others:

  • Zoom and pan

  • Rotate

  • Crop

  • Step back in history client-side (before save)


After installing the module, you can use it in the following ways:

  • Specify the darkroom widget when adding an image field to a view. Configuration values can be provided using the options attribute:

    <field name="image" widget="darkroom" options="{'minWidth': 100}"/>

    The widget passes options directly through to DarkroomJS, which supports the following:

    • minWidth

    • minHeight

    • maxWidth

    • maxHeight

    • ratio (aspect ratio)

    • backgroundColor

  • Open a form view that contains an image in edit mode and hover over the image widget. You should see a Darkoom button that can be clicked to open the image in a Darkroom modal, where it can be edited and the changes can be saved.
