jpeg-js

A pure javascript JPEG encoder and decoder for node.js

build status

Installation

This module is installed via npm:

$ npm install jpeg-js

Example Usage

Decoding JPEGs

Will decode a buffer or typed array into a Buffer;

var jpeg = require('jpeg-js');
var jpegData = fs.readFileSync('grumpycat.jpg');
var rawImageData = jpeg.decode(jpegData);
console.log(rawImageData);
/*
{ width: 320,
  height: 180,
  data: <Buffer 5b 40 29 ff 59 3e 29 ff 54 3c 26 ff 55 3a 27 ff 5a 3e 2f ff 5c 3c 31 ff 58 35 2d ff 5b 36 2f ff 55 35 32 ff 5a 3a 37 ff 54 36 32 ff 4b 32 2c ff 4b 36 ... > }
*/

To decode directly into a Uint8Array, pass true as the second argument to decode:

var jpeg = require('jpeg-js');
var jpegData = fs.readFileSync('grumpycat.jpg');
var rawImageData = jpeg.decode(jpegData, true); // return as Uint8Array 
console.log(rawImageData);
/*
{ width: 320,
  height: 180,
  data: { '0': 91, '1': 64, ... } } // typed array
*/

Encoding JPEGs

var jpeg = require('jpeg-js');
var width = 320, height = 180;
var frameData = new Buffer(width * height * 4);
var i = 0;
while (< frameData.length) {
  frameData[i++] = 0xFF; // red 
  frameData[i++] = 0x00; // green 
  frameData[i++] = 0x00; // blue 
  frameData[i++] = 0xFF; // alpha - ignored in JPEGs 
}
var rawImageData = {
  data: frameData,
  width: width,
  height: height
};
var jpegImageData = jpeg.encode(rawImageData, 50);
console.log(jpegImageData);
/*
<Buffer 5b 40 29 ff 59 3e 29 ff 54 3c 26 ff 55 3a 27 ff 5a 3e 2f ff 5c 3c 31 ff 58 35 2d ff 5b 36 2f ff 55 35 32 ff 5a 3a 37 ff 54 36 32 ff 4b 32 2c ff 4b 36 ... >

Decoding

This library builds on the work of two other JPEG javascript libraries, namely jpgjs for the decoding which is licensed under the Apache 2.0 License below:

Encoding

The encoding is based off a port of the JPEG encoder in as3corelib.

The port to Javascript was done by by Andreas Ritter, www.bytestrom.eu, 11/2009.
