A dead simple library for detecting mime type & dimensions of an image, with 0 dependencies outside of Python, struct and StringIO.
ImageLite supports and has been tested against Python3, Python2.7, and Python2.6.
ImageLite was written because I had a web application that needed to detect type & dimension of
user-supplied images. To this end, it is meant to be a a drop-in replacement for using a more
full-featured library such as PIL (which is where the name comes from; originally we were using
Image class to do much the same thing, but PIL is quite heavy-weight for something so simple).
from ImageLite import ImageLite f = open('some_image','rb') data = f.read() img = ImageLite(data) print img.width, img.height, img.image_type
- More image types would be nice
- Support for raw file handles, ala the JPEG work
