This projects distributes the
dcraw binary through a series of npm modules, in order to allow using the binaries through
child_process. This project compiles and distributes binaries for the following operating systems:
If you don't want to think about operating systems, consider installing dcrawr instead, which integrates these modules.
All the modules can be in the following way:
const dcraw = ;const promisify = ;const execFile = ;// call dcraw with any command line arguments you want// bonus points: it's a promise nowdcraw '-w' '-W' 'my-image.dng';
You might also want to get the image returned in standard out rather than written to a file. You can follow these general rules:
const dcraw = ;const promisify = ;const execFile = ;const fs = ;// -c will write the data to stdoutdcraw '-c' 'my-image.dng'// hide the extra window on WindowswindowsHide: true// we want the raw data, not a stringencoding: 'buffer'// 8-bit PPMs are roughly 3x bigger than the original raw file// so you should set this number fairly highmaxBuffer: 1024 * 1024 * 100;
The versions of these packages will follow the versions of
dcraw itself. For example, version
dcraw will be published as
9.28.x, with path versions reflecting updates to the surrounding module (likely related to the build, as there isn't much to the module itself). However, I do not know how
dcraw itself is versioned, so I recommend pinning this dependency just in case.
All versions are compiled using
NODEPS, so some functionality may not work. Please look at the original source code for information on what functionality is provided by dependencies. If you'd like to see any dependencies included, please feel free to submit a PR.
dcraw code by Dave Coffin is compiled without modifications. Regardless of modification, these modules are distributed under the GPL version 2 license, because that is what the header in the source code says and I do not want to get in trouble.
