imgur

A simple ruby interface to the imgur image hosting service (imgur.com). This is a nice alternative to uploading images and not having to deal with RMagick bs.

Requirements

Examples

# Uploading an image to imgur from the filesystem

img = Imgur::API.new 'YOURAPIKEY'
uploaded_img = img.upload_file '/path/to/your/test.jpg'
# should return a hash like:
# => {"small_thumbnail"=>"http://imgur.com/NfuKFs.png", 
      "original_image"=>"http://imgur.com/NfuKF.png", 
      "large_thumbnail"=>"http://imgur.com/NfuKFl.png", 
      "delete_hash"=>"VAiPkk5NoQ", "imgur_page"=>"http://imgur.com/NfuKF", 
      "delete_page"=>"http://imgur.com/delete/VAiPkk5NoQ", 
      "image_hash"=>"NfuKF"}
# now you can do something like (if you're using rails):
<%= image_tag uploaded_img["small_thumbnail"] %>

# Here's an example using Sinatra and Sequel, requires sinatra-more

# Everything's included into one action for brevity, although you can probably extract the file functions to a helper for organizational purposes

post '/upload_photo' do 
  # let's assume we have this is in our form
  # <%= file_field_tag :photo %>
  file_name = params[:photo][:filename].split(".").first.gsub!(/[^a-z0-9]+/i, '_')
  file_type = params[:photo][:filename].split(".").last
  tmp_file_path = File.join(APP_ROOT,"public/images/tmp/#{file_name}.#{file_type}")
  FileUtils.mv params[:photo][:tempfile].path, tmp_file_path

  unless params["photo"].blank? || params["photo"].nil?
    @uploaded_img = IMGUR.upload_file tmp_file_path
  end

  @photo = Photo.new(:photo => @uploaded_img)
  @photo.save

  redirect '/results'
end

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
