Linux standalone compare utility

Post by vinayzz »

Hi,

I am looking for leads where I could use just the compare module with usual set of format support on linux.
The catch is that I do not want to install IM on all systems where I want to compare images. I want a bundle which can be just plug and play for linux machines.

I could do this on windows with the current downloadable exe's.

You could create a static build of ImageMagick so you can deploy it easily on a Linux system.
.NET + ImageMagick = Magick.NET https://github.com/dlemstra/Magick.NET, @MagickNET, Donate

But I do not want the installation in any case. Just the executable is all we need.
Adding a installation step will be an overhead.

Try building with these configure script options:

Code: Select all

./configure --disable-shared --enable-zero-configuration
That will build a static release that does not require any external configuration files. No installation is required.
