API to thispersondoesnotexist.com
pip install thispersondoesnotexist
Unofficial "API" for the ThisPersonDoesNotExist website.
What is ThisPersonDoesNotExist?
A page that returns a JPEG picture of a person that does not exist, because it has been generated using an AI. When opening the webpage, a image is returned directly, and refreshing the page will return a new image (although they can be repeated because the repository is limited and images are not generated on real time).
Some articles about it:
- This Person Does Not Exist - Computer generated people Refresh to get a new one | Product Hunt
- Thispersondoesnotexist.com is face-generating AI at its creepiest
Why creating/using an "API"?
Why not? Use your imagination!
- Python 3.6
- requests library
- free time
Get a person using function
from thispersondoesnotexist import get_online_person picture = await get_online_person() # bytes representation of the image # Save to a file from thispersondoesnotexist import save_picture await save_picture(picture, "a_beautiful_person.jpeg") # If no filename is provided, one will be generated using the checksum of the picture await save_picture(picture)
Get a person using class
from thispersondoesnotexist import Person # Initialize with True to automatically get a person from the webpage person = Person(fetch_online=True) # Save to a file await person.save("a_beautiful_person.jpeg") # If no filename is provided, one will be generated using the checksum of the picture await person.save()
This can be useful if you want to create a scraper of fictional persons. You would be calling the methods to get random pictures, and to avoid repeating them, you can use their checksum - or just save with the auto-generated filename.
from thispersondoesnotexist import get_online_person, get_checksum_from_picture, Person # Using object person = Person(fetch_online=True) checksum = person.get_checksum("md5") # Using function picture = await get_online_person() checksum2 = get_checksum_from_picture(picture) # Method is optional, defaults to "md5"
