Mentioned in Awesome Go Build Status go report card GoDoc codecov

go-exiftool is a golang library that wraps ExifTool.

ExifTool's purpose is to extract as much metadata as possible (EXIF, IPTC, XMP, GPS, ...) from a lots of differents file types (Office documents, pictures, movies, PDF, ...).

go-exiftool uses ExifTool's stay_open feature to optimize performance.

Requirements

go-exiftool needs ExifTool to be installed.

  • On Debian : sudo apt-get install exiftool

Usage

et, err := exiftool.NewExiftool()
if err != nil {
    fmt.Printf("Error when intializing: %v\n", err)
    return
}
defer et.Close()

fileInfos := et.ExtractMetadata("testdata/20190404_131804.jpg")

for _, fileInfo := range fileInfos {
    if fileInfo.Err != nil {
        fmt.Printf("Error concerning %v: %v\n", fileInfo.File, fileInfo.Err)
        continue
    }

    for k, v := range fileInfo.Fields {
        fmt.Printf("[%v] %v\n", k, v)
    }
}
