Faster and less memory hungry thumbnail generation for TYPO3 with vips php module
Faster and less memory hungry thumbnail generation for TYPO3 with libvips
Here is a speed and memory comparison: https://github.com/libvips/libvips/wiki/Speed-and-memory-use
The PHP module vips with version 8.8+ needs to be present on the server. The versions 8.5+ may work, but are not tested.
@jcupitt provides some Dockerfiles which may help you to get a newer version.
The module can be installed with
pecl install vips
composer require christophlehmann/vips
By default the file types
jpg,jpeg,png,webp,pdf are handled. Other types are handled through TYPO3. This list can be
configured in EM. If you have problems with certain file types just deactivate them.
- Crop images
- Scale images
- Mask images (currently done with TYPO3's default image processor)
- Handle upscaling
- Handle cropping by parameters like
Add the logging configuration to
<?php $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['LOG']['Lemming']['Vips']['writerConfiguration'] = [ \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Log\LogLevel::DEBUG => [ \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Log\Writer\FileWriter::class => [ 'logFileInfix' => 'vips' ] ] ];
Then create a thumbnail and check the log
