Template function to fetch remote file #738

I'd like to see a function to use in templates which fetches a remote file.

In my case, I would like to fetch remote thumbnails for YouTube videos. But I can imagine that this is useful as well for other cases


This function could look like this:

fetch_raw(url="...") -> Url
  • This is similar to load_data, in the sense that it fetches remote data
  • This is similar to resize_image, in the sense that the command returns an URL for the locally stored file (to static/processed_images) in this case.

Modifying the existing resize_image function to support a remote url would be an option for me as well.

What are the thoughts on this? Could this be implemented?
