NgOpenCV

This is a library that integrates Angular v6+ with OpenCVJS, the Javascript port of the popular computer vision library. It will allow you to load the library (with its WASM components) and use it in your application. The loading is done asynchrosnously after your Angular app has booted. The attached service makes use of a notifier to indicate when the loading is done and the service and library is ready for use.

Please read this blog post for the whole background on how this library came together

Installation

NPM

npm install ng-open-cv --save

Yarn

yarn add ng-open-cv

Once the library is installed you will need to copy the opencv content from the node_modules/ng-open-cv/lib/assets folder to your own assets folder. This folder contains the actual OpenCV library (v3.4) and its WASM and ASM.js files.

Data files

OpenCV.js uses classification files to perform certain detection operations. To use those files:

  • Get the folders you need from the OpenCV data repository
  • Add the folders to your app's assets\opencv\data folder. Right now the assets\data folder that with this library only includes the haarcascardes files.
  • Use the createFileFromUrl in the NgOpenService class to load the file in memory.

Example:




this.ngOpenCVService.createFileFromUrl(
        'haarcascade_frontalface_default.xml',
        'assets/opencv/data/haarcascades/haarcascade_frontalface_default.xml'
      ),


  1. Typings

To your src/typings.d.ts file. add

declare var cv: any;

Demo

You can visit the demo site here.

Usage

If you have installed NgOpenCV and copied the opencv folder to your assets directory, everything should work out of the box.

1. Import the NgOpenCVModule

Create the configuration object needed to configure the loading of OpenCV.js for your application. By default the 3.4 asm.js version of the library will be loaded. The default options are

DEFAULT_OPTIONS = {
    scriptUrl: 'assets/opencv/asm/3.4/opencv.js',
    usingWasm: false,
    locateFile: this.locateFile.bind(this),
    onRuntimeInitialized: () => {}
  };

Adjust the scriptUrl to contain the path to your opencvjs file. If you wanted to load the WASM version, you would use a configuration like:

const openCVConfig: OpenCVOptions = {
  scriptUrl: `assets/opencv/wasm/3.4/opencv.js`,
  wasmBinaryFile: 'wasm/3.4/opencv_js.wasm',
  usingWasm: true
};

Note: WASM is not supported on mobile Safari

Import NgOpenCVModule.forRoot(config) in the NgModule of your application. The forRoot method is a convention for modules that provide a singleton service. Pass it the configuration object.

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { NgOpenCVModule } from 'ng-open-cv';
import { RouterModule } from '@angular/router';
import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { OpenCVOptions } from 'projects/ng-open-cv/src/public_api';

const openCVConfig: OpenCVOptions = {
  scriptUrl: `assets/opencv/opencv.js`,
  wasmBinaryFile: 'wasm/opencv_js.wasm',
  usingWasm: true
};

@NgModule({
   declarations: [
      AppComponent,
   ],
   imports: [
      BrowserModule,
      NgOpenCVModule.forRoot(openCVConfig),
      RouterModule,
      AppRoutingModule
   ],
   providers: [],
   bootstrap: [
      AppComponent
   ]
})
export class AppModule { }

If you have multiple NgModules and you use one as a shared NgModule (that you import in all of your other NgModules), don't forget that you can use it to export the NgOpenCVModule that you imported in order to avoid having to import it multiple times.

...
const openCVConfig: OpenCVOptions = {
  scriptUrl: `assets/opencv/opencv.js`,
  wasmBinaryFile: 'wasm/opencv_js.wasm',
  usingWasm: true
};

@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        NgOpenCVModule.forRoot(openCVConfig)
    ],
    exports: [BrowserModule, NgOpenCvModule],
})
export class SharedModule {
}

3. Use the NgOpenCVService for your application

  • Import NgOpenCVService from ng-open-cv in your application code:
import { Component, OnInit, ElementRef, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { fromEvent, Observable } from 'rxjs';
import { switchMap } from 'rxjs/operators';
import { NgOpenCVService, OpenCVLoadResult } from 'ng-open-cv';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-hello',
  templateUrl: './hello.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./hello.component.css']
})
export class HelloComponent implements OnInit {

  // Keep tracks of the ready
  openCVLoadResult: Observable<OpenCVLoadResult>;

  // HTML Element references
  @ViewChild('fileInput')
  fileInput: ElementRef;
  @ViewChild('canvasOutput')
  canvasOutput: ElementRef;

  constructor(private ngOpenCVService: NgOpenCVService) { }

  ngOnInit() {
    this.openCVLoadResult = this.ngOpenCVService.isReady$;
  }

  loadImage(event) {
    if (event.target.files.length) {
      const reader = new FileReader();
      const load$ = fromEvent(reader, 'load');
      load$
        .pipe(
          switchMap(() => {
            return this.ngOpenCVService.loadImageToHTMLCanvas(`${reader.result}`, this.canvasOutput.nativeElement);
          })
        )
        .subscribe(
          () => {},
          err => {
            console.log('Error loading image', err);
          }
        );
      reader.readAsDataURL(event.target.files[0]);
    }
  }

}

The NgOpenCVService exposes a isReady$ observable which you should always subscribe too before attempting to do anything OpenCV related. It emits an OpenCVLoadResult object that is structured as:

export interface OpenCVLoadResult {
 ready: boolean;
 error: boolean;
 loading: boolean;
}

The following function gives you an example of how to use it your code:

detectFace() {
   // before detecting the face we need to make sure that
   // 1. OpenCV is loaded
   // 2. The classifiers have been loaded
   this.ngOpenCVService.isReady$
     .pipe(
       filter((result: OpenCVLoadResult) => result.ready),
       switchMap(() => {
         return this.classifiersLoaded$;
       }),
       tap(() => {
         this.clearOutputCanvas();
         this.findFaceAndEyes();
       })
     )
     .subscribe(() => {
       console.log('Face detected');
     });
 }
