Commanding Cloudinary Through the CLI

May 17, 2020

The Cloudinary CLI (Command Line Interface) enables you to interact with Cloudinary through the command line. This allows you to do virtually anything you can do with the Cloudinary upload and admin APIs, and much of the functionality that’s available through your account console.

For example, you can perform Admin and Upload API operations by typing commands into a terminal without having to spend time setting up a formal coding environment. Additional helper commands are provided to help you to try out transformations, optimizations, and other common actions with minimal effort. You can also combine CLI commands in a batch file to automate laborious tasks.

Advanced <img> Components

Apr 19, 2020

Perform more powerful and advanced actions on your assets with our Angular SDK:

Lazy Loading - images that contain this attribute will be lazy loaded, meaning the image will only load when it is in the view port or when scrolled down to it. This is extremely helpful in cases where you have a lot of images on your webpage and you don’t want to load all of your images at once to save on bandwidth.

Placeholder - setting a much smaller, lower quality version of the original image as a placeholder until the original image is loaded.

Accessibility Mode for visual assistance - for example when creating a web app that can toggle to dark-mode (a darker tint of the page view). The accessibility mode will allow you to translate this dark-mode to the images as well by adding the attribute accessiblity='darkmode'.
