JavaScript library for the Photon image manipulation service


JavaScript library for the Photon image manipulation service.

Install for Node.js via npm:

$ npm install photon

Now you can simply require('photon') in your module to generate Photon URLs.

var photon = require('photon');
var url = photon('')

Include dist/photon.js in a <script> tag. A photon global variable function is exposed:

<script src="photon.js"></script>
  var url = photon('')

You can also consume photon.js via browserify when installed via npm (see Node.js instructions above).
