Pixaven is a modern, GPU-powered image processing API.
We transform, enhance, adjust, crop, stylize, filter and watermark your images with blazing speed.
The official Node integration for the Pixaven API.
See the Pixaven API docs.
$ npm install pixaven --save
You may also choose your preferred response method on a per-request basis. By default, the Pixaven API will return a JSON response with rich metadata pertaining to input and output images. Alternatively, you can use binary responses. When enabled, the API will respond with a full binary representation of the resulting (output) image. This Node module exposes two convenience methods for interacting with binary responses:
Here is a quick example of uploading a local file for processing. It calls
.toJSON() at a final step and instructs the API to return a JSON response.
const Pixaven = ;// Pass your Pixaven API Key to the constructorconst pix = "your-api-key";// Upload an image from disk, resize it to 100 x 75,// automatically enhance, and adjust sharpness parameterpix;
If you already have your source visuals publicly available online, we recommend using Image Fetch by default. That way you only have to send a JSON payload containing image URL and processing steps. This method is also much faster than uploading a full binary representation of the image.
const Pixaven = ;// Pass your Pixaven API Key to the constructorconst pix = "your-api-key";// Provide a publicly available image URL with `.fetch()` method,// apply Gaussian blur using PNG as the output format.// We'll also use `.toFile()` method and stream the output image to diskpix;
