Running locally, port 8080, storing data in data/, and only allowing the thumbnail and identity filters

$ ./pict-rs -a -p data/ -w thumbnail identity


Run the following commands:

# Create a folder for the files (anywhere works)
mkdir ./pict-rs
cd ./pict-rs
mkdir -p volumes/pictrs
sudo chown -R 991:991 volumes/pictrs
wget https://git.asonix.dog/asonix/pict-rs/raw/branch/master/docker/prod/docker-compose.yml
sudo docker-compose up -d

Docker Development

Run the following to develop in docker:

git clone https://git.asonix.dog/asonix/pict-rs
cd pict-rs/docker/dev


pict-rs offers four endpoints:

  • POST /image for uploading an image. Uploaded content must be valid multipart/form-data with an image array located within the images[] key

    This endpoint returns the following JSON structure on success with a 201 Created status

        "files": [
                "delete_token": "JFvFhqJA98",
                "file": "lkWZDRvugm.jpg"
                "delete_token": "kAYy9nk2WK",
                "file": "8qFS0QooAn.jpg"
                "delete_token": "OxRpM3sf0Y",
                "file": "1hJaYfGE01.jpg"
        "msg": "ok"
  • POST /import for uploading an image while preserving the filename. This should not be exposed to the public internet, as it can cause naming conflicts with saved files. The upload format and response format are the same as the POST /image endpoint.

  • GET /image/download?url=... Download an image from a remote server, returning the same JSON payload as the POST endpoint

  • GET /image/{file} for getting a full-resolution image. file here is the file key from the /image endpoint's JSON

  • GET /image/{transformations...}/{file} get a file with transformations applied. existing transformations include

    • identity: apply no changes
    • blur{float}: apply a gaussian blur to the file
    • thumbnail{int}: produce a thumbnail of the image fitting inside an {int} by {int} square An example of usage could be
    GET /image/thumbnail256/blur3.0/asdf.png

    which would create a 256x256px thumbnail and blur it

  • DELETE /image/delete/{delete_token}/{file} or GET /image/delete/{delete_token}/{file} to delete a file, where delete_token and file are from the /image endpoint's JSON
