inkjet-logo

Node.js CI

JPEG-image decoding, encoding & EXIF reading library for a browser and node.js

browser-matrix

Installation

installing with npm:

npm install inkjet --save

In browser

To use inkjet in a browser, use inkjet.js or inkjet.min.js in /dist directory, or build it manually:

npm install
npm run browser

Usage

Decoding, encoding and EXIF extraction operations are offloaded to WebWorkers if the environment supports them.

Decode JPEG

const inkjet = require('inkjet');

const filepath = './images/js_logo-4-2-0.jpg';
const buf = fs.readFileSync(filepath);

inkjet.decode(buf, (err, decoded) => {
  // decoded: { width: number, height: number, data: Uint8Array }
});

Encode JPEG

const inkjet = require('inkjet');

const width = 320;
const height = 180;
const frameData = new Buffer(width * height * 4);
const i = 0;

while (i < frameData.length) {
  frameData[i++] = 0xFF; // R, red
  frameData[i++] = 0x00; // G, green
  frameData[i++] = 0x00; // B, blue
  frameData[i++] = 0xFF; // A, alpha - ignored in JPEGs
}

const buf = frameData;
const options = {
  width: width,
  height: height,
  quality: 80
};

inkjet.encode(buf, options, (err, encoded) => {
  // encoded: { width: number, height: number, data: Uint8Array }
});

Read EXIF

const inkjet = require('inkjet');

const filepath = './images/js_logo-exif.jpg';
const buf = fs.readFileSync(filepath);
inkjet.exif(buf, (err, metadata) => {
  // metadata -- an object that maps EXIF tags to string values
});

Deduce image type

const inkjet = require('inkjet');

const filepath = './images/js_logo-4-2-0.jpg';
const buf = fs.readFileSync(filepath);
inkjet.magic(buf, (err, data) => {
  // data -- an object that contains mime-type and extension
});

Image information

const inkjet = require('inkjet');

const filepath = './images/js_logo-4-2-0.jpg';
const buf = fs.readFileSync(filepath);
inkjet.info(buf, (err, data) => {
  // data -- an object that contains width, height, mime type and extension data
});

API

.decode(buf, [options], cb);

Decodes a JPEG image.

Arguments:

  • buf - source buffer, one of the following types: Buffer|ArrayBuffer|Uint8Array|Uint8ClampedArray
  • [options] - an optional object with settings to decode an image. Supported options:
    • width - override image width
    • height - override image height
  • cb - a callback that gets 2 arguments:
    • err - decoding Error
    • decoded - an object that describes the decoded image: { width: number, height: number, data: Uint8Array } where data represents colors in RGBA format.
inkjet.decode(buf, (err, decoded) => {
  // ...
});

.encode(buf, [options], cb);

Encodes the provided buffer to a JPEG format.

Arguments:

  • buf - source buffer, one of the following types: Buffer|ArrayBuffer|Uint8Array|Uint8ClampedArray
  • [options] - an optional object with settings to encode an image. Supported options:
    • width - width of the image in buf
    • height- height of the image in buf
    • quality - a numberic value [0-100], describes quality of encoding. 0 - low quality, 100 - high quality.
  • cb - a callback that gets 2 arguments:
    • err - encoding Error
    • encoded - an object that describes the encoded image: { width: number, height: number, data: Uint8Array }
inkjet.encode(buf, (err, encoded) => {
  // ...
});

.exif(buf, [options], cb);

Get EXIF metadata for the image. The metadata tags defined in the Exif standard cover date and time information, camera settings, descriptions, resolution and location information.

Arguments:

  • buf - source buffer, one of the following types: Buffer|ArrayBuffer|Uint8Array|Uint8ClampedArray
  • [options] - an optional object with settings to encode an image. Supported options:
    • hasMakerNote - exclude MakerNote tag from metadata. Default value: true, MakerNote tag is excluded.
  • cb - a callback that gets 2 arguments:
    • err - exif extraction Error
    • metadata - metadata object, a set of tags and their values.
inkjet.exif(buf, (err, metadata) => {
  // ...
});

.magic(buf, cb);

Deduce image type (mime type and extension) for the provided buffer.

Arguments:

  • buf - source buffer, one of the following types: Buffer|ArrayBuffer|Uint8Array|Uint8ClampedArray
  • cb - a callback that gets 2 arguments:
    • err - Error object
    • data - data object { "mimeType": string, "extension": string }
inkjet.magic(buf, (err, data) => {
  // ...
});

.info(buf, cb);

Get image information without reading and decoding an image.

Arguments:

  • buf - source buffer, one of the following types: Buffer|ArrayBuffer|Uint8Array|Uint8ClampedArray
  • cb - a callback that gets 2 arguments:
    • err - Error object
    • data - data object { "type": string, "mimeType": string, "extension": string, "width": number, "height: number" }
inkjet.info(buf, (err, data) => {
  // data: {
  //   type: "image"
  //   mimeType: ...
});

Tests

To run the tests for inkjet in Node.js:

npm test

To run tests in a browser:

npm run bundle:test

a bundle file inkjet-test-bundle.js with all tests will be generated in inkjet/test/browser directory.

Open inkjet/test/browser/index.html in the target browser. Tests will run automatically.
