VIPS on Amazon Linux AMI

VIPS on Amazon Linux AMI

VIPS  s a free image processing system (library) – in comparison  to similar libraries is super fast, and does not neet much memory. Checkout this speed memory usage . In most cases you can install it by using this handy script:

curl -s | sudo bash -

In some cases you have to install it from source.

I created small fork of this script which will work on AMI Linux:

Amazon Linux AMI installation (probably will work also on all Red Hat based distributions (CentOs).

After while, you can check if VIPS is working correctly:

vips --version
vips-7.42.3-Wed Apr 29 23:52:49 UTC 2015

Don’t forget to extend PKG_CONFIG_PATH if you want to use vips as a port of other library.

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig/

Checkout using CLI  documentation to play with it.
