About

filepreview : A file preview generator for node.js

Will generate a file preview (gif, jpg or png) of about 450 different document formats.

See filepreview in action, watch this demo using Angular : https://vimeo.com/151667833

Installation

filepreview depends on 'unoconv':

  $ apt-get install unoconv

filepreview depends on 'ffmpeg':

  $ apt-get install ffmpeg

filepreview depends on 'ImageMagick':

  $ apt-get install imagemagick

To install use npm:

  $ npm install filepreview

Usage

Asynchronous with callback (if error, will return error in the callback) :

  var filepreview = require('filepreview');

  filepreview.generate('/home/myfile.docx', '/home/myfile_preview.gif', function(error) {
    if (error) {
      return console.log(error);
    }
    console.log('File preview is /home/myfile_preview.gif');
  });

Synchronous (if error, will return false):

  var filepreview = require('filepreview');

  if (!filepreview.generateSync('/home/myfile.docx', '/home/myfile_preview.gif')) {
    console.log('Oops, something went wrong.');
  } else {
    console.log('File preview is /home/myfile_preview.gif');
  };

You can set options object for the preview generation. List of options available:-

  • width
  • height

e.g.

var options = {
  width: 640,
  height: 480
};

// Asynchronous
filepreview.generate('/home/myfile.docx', '/home/myfile_preview.gif', options, function(error) {...});

// Synchronous
filepreview.generateSync('/home/myfile.docx', '/home/myfile_preview.gif', options);

To be more stable, you can run unoconv as listener before running the file preview generation.

$ unoconv --listener
$ node script_with_file_preview_generations.js
