  • thumbor

    The quickest way to run thumbor. (by MinimalCompact)

  • Great to see more players in this space, especially re-using the thumbor syntax. Curious how much of a feature-parity is there between Imagor and thumbor though? (particularly with some of the plugins)

    Context/disclaimer: I've been maintaining the docker image for thumbor[0] (not maintaining thumbor itself, although I work with the thumbor team occasionally). Thumbor works great for us at my company, but it's still python 2.x based. There's some work to transition to python 3.x, but it seems[1] like there are not enough resources or drive to push this forward? and thumbor 7 does not (yet) have feature parity with thumbor 6.

    I'm yet to find something that has feature-parity with thumbor though... But it definitely feels like high time for a some new blood in this space. Especially compared against some of the cloud options out there, like Cloudflare Images, especially since they seem to be also lacking some crucial features[2].
