This is a EVEN THINNER wrapper around the web service. Blitline provides a web based image processing service.

You must first have a account to successfully use the gem. You can obtain one (free and without obligation, not even an email address) by going to

Once you have your account, you will need to find you ACCOUNT_ID which you can get by logging in and clicking on the Account tab.

For your node project, simply npm install it

$ npm install simple_blitline_node

Once installed, you can try the following code in your NodeJS app:

    var Blitline = require('simple_blitline_node');
    var nodeutil = require('util');
    var blitline = new Blitline();
    /* Replace MY_APP_ID with your Blitline applicationID */
    var applicationID = "MY_APP_ID";

        "application_id": applicationID,

    var promise = blitline.postJobs();
    promise.then(function(data) {

And you will get JSON back describing where the resulting image will be located There are many more things you can do with images (including pushing them to your own S3 buckets).

You can find documentation about and it's services by following the links in the Further reading section below

== Contributing to blitline

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet
  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it
  • Fork the project
  • Start a feature/bugfix branch
  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution
  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
