Custom Image Loaders¶
If thumbor image loaders do not meet your needs you can implement a new image loader.
The structure of the module you should implement can be seen in the http loader at https://github.com/thumbor/thumbor/blob/master/thumbor/loaders/http_loader.py.
The only required method to implement is the one that receives the portion of the URI that has the original image path, named load. This method also receives a callback and should call the callback with the results of reading the image.
Another example can be seen in the filesystem loader at https://github.com/thumbor/thumbor/blob/master/thumbor/loaders/file_loader.py.
You can optionally implement a validate(URI) method that thumbor will call to make sure that your loader can accept the user required URI.
