A Heroku buildpack that installs the Phil Harvey's ExifTool.

How it works

ExifTool installation ends in /app/vendor/exiftool directory.


Configure from CLI

heroku buildpacks:add https://github.com/velizarn/heroku-buildpack-exiftool

Configure from app manifest

Add this Git repo to buildpacks list in your app.json file, e.g.:

"buildpacks": [
    "url": "heroku/nodejs"
    "url": "https://github.com/velizarn/heroku-buildpack-exiftool.git"

Example usage

-----> exiftool app detected
       Custom Exiftool URL is not set, start downloading from default location
-----> Installing exiftool 11.32
       Fetching   https://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/Image-ExifTool-11.32.tar.gz

Add custom download location

If you prefer to deploy your own archve you can set a config var to download Exiftool from a custom location, e.g.

heroku config:set EXIFTOOL_URL_CUSTOM=https://123456.mycdn.org/downl/Image-ExifTool-11.36.tar.gz
-----> exiftool app detected
      Start downloading Exiftool from https://123456.mycdn.org/downl/Image-ExifTool-11.36.tar.gz
