  • Nginx frontend docker image with built-in caching, using nginx-proxy
  • SIMD support via docker tags
  • remotecv docker image (for async smart cropping and feature detection)
  • Clear version tagging to match Thumbor versions
  • NOTE: from Thumbor 7.x images are no longer updated on docker hub and were moved to latest will be deleted from docker hub eventually

This project is a loose fork of APSL/docker-thumbor. It's not a direct fork, because lots has changed, and it's not backwards compatible. Nevertheless, the foundation that APSL/docker-thumbor provided was great, and we wish to thank its contributors.
