Dependencies

This relies on a native module called node-canvas. You will need to install cairo, so read https://github.com/learnboost/node-canvas/wiki before installing.

Usage

var captchagen = require('node-captchagen');
var fs = require('fs');
var img = fs.readFileSync('example.png');
var optional = {
    height: 150, // default is 150 
    width: 300, // dafault is 300 
    text: 'abc123', // default is six random characters 
    backgroundColor: '#EF766A', // default is a random gradient color 
    // textColor: '#000', // default is a random color every letter 
    font: ' Microsoft YaHei', // default is 'sans' 
    fontsize: 70, // default between 0.4*height and 0.6*height 
    offset: 50, // default is 3 
    img: img // default is none 
}
// optional object arg with background, image, lines, points ,text will always output. 
var drawOption = {drawBackground: true,drawImage: false,drawLines: true,drawPoints: true}; 
var captcha = captchagen.create(optional,drawOption);
captcha.generate(); // Draws the image to the canvas 
 
/* call `generate()` before running the below */
 
captcha.uri();      // outputs png data-uri. works sync and async (cb is optional) 
captcha.buffer();   // outputs png buffer. works sync and async (cb is optional) 
captcha.buffer('png'); // outputs an image stream. type can be either png or jpeg (png is the default) 
res.end(captcha.buffer()); // output image or base64  

Middleware

The whole thing is a middleware stack. When you use .create() it uses our default settings which look like this:

captcha.use(drawBackground);
captcha.use(drawText);
captcha.use(drawLines);
captcha.use(drawPoints);
