Dynamically generating ZIP files with one line of code

As a developer, you want to allow your users to download multiple files in a single click. An easy way to download multiple files and share them is to generate a ZIP file. When images are involved, you may also want to normalize the original images before including them in the ZIP file, by scaling them down to the same maximum resolution or converting them to the same format.

In the following simple example, 3 images of cats have been uploaded to the cloud.

With one line of code, you can generate a dynamic URL that, for example, automatically creates and then delivers a ZIP file containing the cat images, all scaled down to a width of 200 pixels:

The ability to dynamically generate and deliver ZIP files to your users by including one line of code can be useful for developers in a number of ways. For example:

  • Social and messaging apps that allow users to select multiple files to send to another recipient, who subsequently receives all the files in one ZIP file (e.g., the Gmail feature where you can download all attachments as a single ZIP file).
  • Applications that include image galleries and allow users to select multiple images and then download a ZIP file with all the selected images (e.g., as Google Photos has implemented).
  • Allowing your users to download multiple images simultaneously in a single ZIP file, where all the images have been normalized to a certain size, format or quality, (or any otherimage transformation you want to apply to all the images).

Generating ZIP files of images in the cloud

Cloudinary supports generating ZIP files using the generate_archive method, that can include any type of file, and offers various options for determining which files to include in the ZIP file (e.g., according to the file’s name, all files in the same folder, etc). The method also allows you to apply transformations to all the images before including them in the file and set various options for generating the ZIP file (e.g., naming the file). For more information on all the options available for generating ZIP files, see the generate_archive documentation .

Cloudinary enables you to create and deliver ZIP files in one of the following two ways:

  • Precreate the ZIP file and upload it to the cloud.
  • Generate a dynamic URL for creating and downloading a ZIP file on demand.

Create a ZIP file of images

To precreate a ZIP file, use the create_archive method of theUpload API, which also automatically uploads the ZIP file to the cloud, and then give your users a link for downloading it. This option is best if multiple users will be downloading the resulting ZIP file.

For example, to create a ZIP file called small_cats.zip that contains small (50×50) thumbnails of all of the images in your account that have beentagged as "cats":

Ruby:
Cloudinary::Uploader.create_archive(:tags => 'cats',      :resource_type => 'image', :target_public_id => 'small_cats.zip',     :transformations => {:width => 50, :height => 50, :crop => :fill})

PHP:
/Cloudinary/Uploader::create_archive(array(     'tags' => 'cats', 'resource_type' => 'image',      'target_public_id' => 'small_cats.zip', 'transformations' => array(         'width' => 50, 'height' => 50, 'crop' => 'fill')));

Python:
cloudinary.uploader.create_archive(     tags = 'cats', resource_type = 'image',      target_public_id = 'small_cats.zip', transformations = {         width = 50, height = 50, crop => 'fill'})

Node.js:
cloudinary.v2.uploader.create_archive(     { tags: 'cats', resource_type: 'image',      target_public_id: 'small_cats.zip', transformations: {         width: 50, height: 50, crop: 'fill'}},     function(error,result) {console.log(result) });

Java:
cloudinary.uploader().createArchive(     ObjectUtils.asMap('tags', 'cats', 'resource_type', 'image',     'target_public_id', 'small_cats.zip', 'transformations',      Arrays.asList(         new Transformation().width(50).height(50).crop('fill')));

cURL:
curl https://api.cloudinary.com/v1_1/demo/image/generate_archive -X POST --data 'tags=cats$resource_type=image⌖_public_id=small_cats.zip&timestamp=173719931&api_key=436464676&signature=a788d68f86a6f868af&transformations=c_fill%2Cw_50%2Ch_50'

The response to the API call includes all pertinent information about the created zip file, including the URL needed to access it, in this case:

Ruby:
cl_image_tag("small_cats.zip")

PHP:
cl_image_tag("small_cats.zip")

Python:
CloudinaryImage("small_cats.zip").image()

Node.js:
cloudinary.image("small_cats.zip")

Java:
cloudinary.url().imageTag("small_cats.zip")

jQuery:
$.cloudinary.image("small_cats.zip")

.Net:
cloudinary.Api.UrlImgUp.BuildImageTag("small_cats.zip")

Generate a dynamic URL for downloading a ZIP file on demand

Instead of precreating the ZIP file, you can generate a signed URL for creating a ZIP file on the fly and on demand with the download_archive_url method of the Utils API. The ZIP file is only created and streamed to your user when the URL is accessed. The resulting ZIP file is not cached or stored in your Cloudinary account, so this option is best if only a single user downloads the resulting ZIP file and avoids waste if the URL is not accessed by the user.

For example, to generate a signed URL for creating and delivering a ZIP file that contains the ‘fat_cat’ and ‘kitten’ images:

Ruby:
Cloudinary::Utils.download_archive_url(     :public_ids => ['fat_cat', 'kitten'],      :resource_type => 'image')

PHP:
/Cloudinary/Utils::download_archive_url(     array(         'public_ids' => array('fat_cat', 'kitten'),          'resource_type' => 'image'));

Python:
cloudinary.utils.download_archive_url(     public_ids = ['fat_cat', 'kitten'],      resource_type = 'image')

Node.js:
cloudinary.v2.utils.download_archive_url(     { public_ids: ['fat_cat', 'kitten'], resource_type: 'image'},     function(error,result) {console.log(result) });

Java:
cloudinary.utils().downloadArchiveUrl(     ObjectUtils.asMap('public_ids', Arrays.asList('fat_cat', 'kitten'),          'resource_type', 'image'));

cURL:
curl https://api.cloudinary.com/v1_1/demo/image/generate_archive -X POST --data 'public_ids[]=fat_cat&public_ids[]=kitten$resource_type=image&mode=download&timestamp=173719931&api_key=436464676&signature=a788d68f86a6f868af'

The API call returns the URL needed to dynamically create and deliver the ZIP file, in this case:

https://api.cloudinary.com/v1_1/demo/image/generate_archive?api_key=373364719177799&expires_at=1557919777&mode=download&public_ids%5B%5D=fat_cat&public_ids%5B%5D=kitten&signature=45411c9ad47e06a2a9468658d919b045d810ec1b&timestamp=1464180350

Dynamic ZIP files with a single line of code

Generating ZIP files with a single line of code allows you to organize, streamline, normalize and optimize multiple image delivery to your users. Either create the ZIP file and upload it to the cloud, or generate a dynamic URL that creates and delivers the ZIP file on demand. For more information on all the options available for generating ZIP files, see the generate_archive documentation . The feature is available for use with all Cloudinary accounts, including thefree tier.
