Documents Thumbnailer library

Project description

Main idea was taken from Code rewriten from zero.

A CLI utility/Python library to create thumbnails for different file types (including PDF, mp4 videos and Microsoft Office documents aka docx/xlsx/pptx).

All the heavy-lifting is done by commonly-used tools such as LibreOffice/unoconv, ffmpeg, poppler and ImageMagick so format support is limited by what these tools can process.

Program requirements

Video encoding: ffmpeg Pdf encoding: poppler-utils Office files: unoconv Imagemagic external libraries:


$ pip install py-thumbnailer


From command line:
$ py-thumbnailer SOURCEFILE [OUTPUTFILE]
From python code:
from py_thumbnailer.thumbnail import create_thumbnail
output_buffer = create_thumbnail(source_file)
