DataURI is a simple utility to automate creation of data URIs. It is capable of creating base64-encoded data URIs for the following types of files:
- PNG images
- GIF images
- JPEG images
- HTML files
- XHTML files
- XML files
- Plain text files
- CSS files
DataURI is used as follows:
java -jar datauri-x.y.z.jar <options> <file>
java -jar datauri-x.y.z.jar -v folder.png
--verbose flags result in additional messages and warnings being output to the console, which can be useful if you run into problems.
-h option shows all of the options:
Usage: java -jar datauri-x.y.z.jar [options] [input file]
Global Options -h, --help Displays this information. --charset <charset> Character set of the input file. -v, --verbose Display informational messages and warnings. -m, --mime <type> Mime type to encode into the data URI. -o <file> Place the output into <file>. Defaults to stdout.
When downloading and using DataURI, you can download one of two files:
datauri-x.y.z.jar contains all of the dependencies necessary to run DataURI. You can simply run this on the command line and everything will work.
datauri-core-x.y.z.jar contains just DataURI and so you’ll need to add the dependencies manually to the classpath. There is one dependency:
