Returning Images

Returning an Image from a Package Endpoint

Package endpoints can serve images by returning a InvocableResponse[bytes] object with the proper MIME Type set.

API callers will receive a binary response over HTTP with the appropriate Content-Type header, and Steamship’s auto-generated Web UI will convert the response to an image in the browser.

from steamship.base.mime_types import MimeTypes
from steamship.invocable import PackageService, get
class ImageReturningSteamshipPackage(PackageService):
    """This package demonstrates how to return an image from a Steamship package."""
    def image_file(self) -> InvocableResponse[bytes]:
        _bytes = None # REPLACE: This should be a Python bytes object with a PNG image
        return InvocableResponse(_bytes=_bytes, mime_type=MimeTypes.PNG)
