  • How to use ImageMagick in AWS Lambda (ruby 2.7) with WebP support

    To communicate from ruby to ImageMagick we will be using RMagick, so we need to add it to our gems.
  • YOLOv7 object detection in Ruby in 10 minutes

    mini_magick is much slower than YOLO. I hear that rmagick is well maintained these days, so you may want to use that.
  • Building a Dot Matrix Animator
    3 projects | | 10 Nov 2021
    To accomplish this project, I knew I would need some way to process the input images. Resizing the images was the easy bit. The more complex (and more important) task was to find the best way to relate a pixel's color in the source image to a dot's size in final animation. I felt that the relative luminance as described in this W3 accessibility document was a logical property to use in this case, and can be easily calculated with a color's RGB components. After determining what tasks I needed to fulfill, I determined that the RMagick library would be a good choice for this project.
