iiify

A simple Python Flask-based implementation of the IIIF Image API 1.0 standard

Notes

  • This started as a toy project to learn the IIIF API, so it is not necessarily ready for production, but may be some day.
  • It was also an opportunity to learn Flask, a micro-framework. I consciously chose to avoid adding too many abstractions, and attempted to stick to procedural code as much as possible.
  • It has a simple on-disk cache scheme, but no cache management.
    • If you want to delete the cache, purge the contents of the cache directory.
    • Cache does not currently check timestamps.
    • Cache can't be disabled yet.
  • It was a lot of fun, and does work, but is missing a lot of optimizations.
  • There are several sample files in the media directory - all but one are courtesy of the Getty's Open Content Program.
