Very future versions¶
Wand will move to CFFI from ctypes.
- PIL compatibility layer
PIL has a very long history and most Python projects still depend on it. We will work on a PIL compatibility layer using Wand. It will provide two ways to emulate PIL:
Module-level compatibility which can be used by changing
try: from wand.pilcompat import Image except ImportError: from PIL import Image
Global monkeypatcher which changes
from wand.pilcompat.monkey import patch; patch() import PIL.Image # it imports wand.pilcompat.Image module
- CLI (convert command) to Wand compiler (#100)
The primary interface of ImageMagick is the convert command. It provides a small parameter language, and many answers on the Web contain code using this. The problem is that you can’t simply copy-and-paste these snippets of code to utilize Wand.
This feature is to make these CLI codes possible to be used with Wand.
