When I have an page that has a lot of images, it is cumbersome to write out the jinja used to handle the images. This is a quick and dirty script to create all of the render image “tags” with the appropriate image names extracted from the images themselves. It simply dumps them to a text file where I can cut/paste to my heart’s content. An example of what it does can be seen in the header image at the top of the page.

parser = argparse.ArgumentParser(description='Generate html tags for images.')
                    help='input path')
                    help='output path')
args = parser.parse_args()

IMG_PATH = args.inp
OUT_PATH = args.output

#read directory for images
for root, dirs, files in os.walk(IMG_PATH):
  res = [i for i in files if i.endswith("png") or i.endswith("jpg")]

#output formatted
with open(OUT_PATH, "w") as fi:
  for i in sorted(res): #remove escapes from \{\{
    fi.write('''\{\{ render_image(  
    "img-responsive img-rounded", "width:31%; margin:1%;")}}\n\n''')
