An app for integrating imgix into Django sites
Python 1 21 days ago imgix/django-imgix

Installation

Dependencies: This app requires Django > 1.4 and imgix > 0.1

  1. Run pip install django-imgix
  2. Add 'django_imgix' to your INSTALLED_APPS:
INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'django_imgix',
)

Configuration

There are a few settings you can use to configure how django-imgix works:

IMGIX_DOMAINS (required)

Give the domain name, or list of domain names, that you have registered with imgix:

IMGIX_DOMAINS = 'my-domain.imgix.net'

or

IMGIX_DOMAINS = [
    'my-domain-1.imgix.net',
    'my-domain-2.imgix.net',
    'my-domain-3.imgix.net',
]

IMGIX_HTTPS

Boolean value, defaults to True if not specified. If set to False it disables HTTPS support.

IMGIX_SIGN_KEY

If you want to produce signed URLs you need to enable secure URLs in the 'Source' tab in your imgix.com account. This will generate a secret key that you need to specify here, e.g.

IMGIX_SIGN_KEY = 'jUIrLPuMEm2aCRj'

This will make a hash from the image url and all parameters that you have supplied, which will be appended as a url parameter s=hash to the image, e.g.

https://my-domain.imgix.net/media/images/dsc_0001.jpg?fm=jpg&h=720&w=1280s=976ae7332b279147ac0812c1770db07f

IMGIX_WEB_PROXY_SOURCE

Boolean value, defaults to False if not specified. If set to True image urls will be generated using the full original image URL, as needed for a Web Proxy Source. Note that imgix requires all your URLs to be signed if you are using a Web Proxy Source (do that by specifying IMGIXSIGNKEY).

IMGIX_DETECT_FORMAT

Boolean value, defaults to False if not specified. If set to True django-imgix will automatically detect popular image extensions and apply the fm= parameter to the image URL, where the value is equal to one of several valid formats.

Example:

{% load imgix_tags %}
{% get_imgix '/media/images/dsc_0001.jpg' w=1280 h=720 %}

will produce:

https://my-domain.imgix.net/media/images/dsc_0001.jpg?fm=jpg&h=720&w=1280

Currently supported image formats for IMGIXDETECTFORMAT are jpg, jpeg, png, gif, jp2, jxr and webp.

IMGIX_ALIASES

Read about aliases in the Usage section below.

Usage

Django-imgix's functionality comes in the form of a template tag, get_imgix, that gets an image URL as its first argument and then an N number of optional arguments:

{% load imgix_tags %}
<img src="{% get_imgix 'image_url' key=value ... %}"/>

Your 'image_url' should be a relative URL, as it will be appended to a domain specified in IMGIX_DOMAINS, to form an absolute URL.

You can add as many key=value pairs as you want. Each key=value pair results in a url parameter that imgix can recognise and use to generate your thumbnail.

For a full list of supported parameters, see imgix's API docs

There is a special argument, wh=WIDTHxHEIGHT, which is made specifically so that transition from other image processing libraries such as easy_thumbnails is easier. For example,

{% get_imgix '/media/images/dsc_0001.jpg' wh='1280x720' %}

is the same as saying

{% get_imgix '/media/images/dsc_0001.jpg' w=1280 h=720 %}

which resolves to

http://my-domain.imgix.net/media/images/dsc_0001.jpg?h=720&w=1280

wh will take precedence over w and h arguments, unless you use a 0 as one of the values in wh, e.g.

{% get_imgix '/media/images/dsc_0001.jpg' wh='1280x0' w='777' h='555' %}

will result in

http://my-domain.imgix.net/media/images/dsc_0001.jpg?h=555&w=1280

Aliases

If you don't want to list all your key=value parameters inline all the time, you can group them into aliases.

To do that, first specify the aliases in your settings file:

IMGIX_ALIASES = {
        'alias_one': {'w': 200, 'h': 300, 'lossless': 1, 'auto': 'format'},
        'alias_two': {'w': 450, 'h': 160, 'fm':'jpg', 'q': 70 },
    }

Then, in your template, either simply provide the alias name as the first unnamed argument, or use alias='alias_name':

{% load imgix_tags %}
<img src="{% get_imgix 'image_url' 'alias_one' %}"/>
... or ...
<img src="{% get_imgix 'image_url' alias='alias_one' %}"/>

Providing an alias means that any other arguments will be ignored.
