Painless retina image handling

Project description

👁 Retina

Retina takes an image and a thumbnail alias and generates a dict with resized images. So if your easy_thumbnails alias looks something like this 'portrait': {'size': (150, 200)} you'll get the resized version of the original image plus a retina version of it.

image = File(user.profile_image).srcset('portrait')

# image holds now the following dict:
{
  'urls': {
    'default': [
      'path/to/images/profile_image__150x200.jpg',
      'path/to/images/profile_image__300x400.jpg',
    ]
  },
  'alt': 'John Doe',
}

Installation

First, install the latest release:

$ pip install retina

Register the adapters you want to use somewhere at boot:

from filer.models import Image as FilerImage
from filer.models import File as FilerFile

from retina.adapters.filer import FilerImageAdapter, FilerFileAdapter
from retina import manager

manager.update_adapters({
  FilerImage: FilerImageAdapter,
  FilerFile: FilerFileAdapter,
})

Or if you're using django with django-filer (which is the use-case Retina was developed for) this is even easier:

from retina import manager

manager.load_default_adapters()

Usage

Initiate the retina.File class with a django-filer File or Image model and call the srcset method with a easy_thumbnails alias as parameter on it. This will always return a dict with a urls and alt key. Where urls is again a dict of different sizes (default being the default if nothing else specified) and alt is just a string containing the alt text for the image. Retina tries to get the alt text by accessing any of the following properties on the filer.Image model: default_alt_text, name, original_filename

Basic

image = File(user.profile_image).srcset('portrait')

{
  'urls': {
    'default': [
      'path/to/images/profile_image__150x200.jpg',
      'path/to/images/profile_image__300x400.jpg',
    ]
  },
  'alt': 'John Doe',
}

Density

You can chain an additional density method to get a @3, @4, e.t.c version of the source image.

image = File(user.profile_image).density(3).srcset('portrait')

{
  'urls': {
    'default': [
      'path/to/images/profile_image__150x200.jpg',
      'path/to/images/profile_image__300x400.jpg',
      'path/to/images/profile_image__450x600.jpg',
    ]
  },
  'alt': 'John Doe',
}

Sizes

If you're website needs different image dimensions, say on mobile than on desktop, you can do that as well:

THUMBNAIL_ALIASES = {
  '': {
    'portrait_sm': {'size': (100, 100)},
    'portrait_xl': {'size': (150, 200)},
    }
},

image = File(user.profile_image).srcset('portrait', ['sm', 'xl'])

{
  'urls': {
    'sm': [
      'path/to/images/profile_image__100x100.jpg',
      'path/to/images/profile_image__200x200.jpg',
    ],
    'xl': [
      'path/to/images/profile_image__150x200.jpg',
      'path/to/images/profile_image__300x400.jpg',
    ]
  },
  'alt': 'John Doe',
}

Notice how the alias is now a combination of portrait + _ + [size]

Additional Data

Pass in any arbitary additional data to the returned dict:

image = File(user.profile_image)).additional(foo='bar', bar='baz').srcset('portrait')

{
  'urls': {
    'default': [
      'path/to/images/profile_image__150x200.jpg',
      'path/to/images/profile_image__300x400.jpg',
    ],
  },
  'foo': 'bar',
  'bar': 'baz',
  'alt': 'John Doe',
}

Notice how the alias is now a combination of portrait + _ + [size]

Adapters

Retina uses the concept of adapters. Each adapter implements a set of methods that define how an image instance (whatever it may be) should be resized. Retina ships with two adapters out of the box: FilerImageAdapter and FilerFileAdapter. This means, that if you followed the installation steps above you can pass in any django-filer File or Image model and it will output you resized versions of given file (if resizable at all).

You're free two write your own adapters and register them on the manager via the update_adapters method. Just pass in a dict where the key is a python type (like str, dict or any other object) and the value is your adapter.
