Thumbor URL Aliases

Project description

Thumbor URL Aliases plugin
.. image::
**thumbor_aliases** let's you create custom urls to redirect your most-used request
using a friendly url.

Imagine that your company decides that all thumbnails should go to ``100x100/smart``.

Wouldn't be awesome to just name this url: ``thumbnail``? So, if you need to change
it later, you can even just modify the alias to point to ``200x200/smart`` instead,
without having to change your application code.

Before installing, be sure you're using Python2.7 (Python3 isn't supported yet).

Install it by using pip::

$ pip install thumbor-aliases

Easy, right?

Create, if not done yet, your thumbor config file::

$ thumbor-config > config.cfg

And enable **thumbor_aliases** plugin on community extensions. This can be done by
just adding next lines at the end of configuration file::


By default it will use the ``yaml_file`` storage handler, which reads a file located on ``~/aliases.yml``.

In case you want to change the file location, you can set the config variable: ``ALIASES_STORAGE_FILE`` ::

ALIASES_STORAGE_FILE = "~/your_custom_filename.yml"

The YAML file should follow next format::

alias: "url/to/redirect"

For example::

thumbnail: "100x100/smart"
header: "800x200/smart"

And in order to finally execute the app and let the magic happen, run next command::

$ thumbor --conf=your_thumbor_config.cfg -a
