This plugin automatically generates thumbnails for any images in your Lektor
content. The difference between this plugin and the
thumbnail filter is that
this is geared towards content, i.e. you don't need to have any references to
the images in your templates at all.
Use this plugin if you want to be able to link to full-size images in your
content, but still want thumbnails to be generated for the link itself. For
example, you may have an image called
cat.jpg, and to link to it in the
content (not the template), but also show a thumbnail.
You can do that like so:
<a href="cat.jpg"><img src="cat-small.jpg" /></a>
To install the plugin, just add
lektor-thumbnail-generator to your plugins
from the command line:
lektor plugins add lektor-thumbnail-generator
If you have trouble, see the plugin installation section of the Lektor documentation.
Then, create a config file called
configs/thumbnail-generator.ini and add
a few sections for images. The section names can be whatever you want, the
final images will be called
imagename-sectionname.ext. For example, this
[small] max_width = 30 [medium] max_width = 400 max_height = 400 [woowee] max_width = 2000
Will take a file called
cat.jpg and create the files
cat-woowee.jpg. All the files will be created, regardless
of whether the original file is smaller, so you can link without worrying
whether a file will exist or not. If the original file is smaller than the width
you have specified, the file will only be copied, and will not be resized.
max_height parameters work like for the Lektor
