Expand description

Write XMP metadata, step by step.

XMP is a metadata format developed by Adobe. It is either embedded into files (e.g. PDF, JPEG, TIFF) or stored in a separate “side-car” file.

This crate provides a simple API to write XMP metadata. Start by creating a new XmpWriter, then add entries to it. Finally, call XmpWriter::finish to get the XMP metadata as a byte vector. Some properties contain a complex data type like a struct or an array. In this case, the writer returns a new struct that can be used to write the data. The reference to the struct must be dropped before the writer can be used again.

Example

use xmp_writer::{LangId, DateTime, XmpWriter};

let mut writer = XmpWriter::new();
writer.creator(["Martin Haug"]);
writer.title([(Some(LangId("de")), "Titel"), (None, "Title")]);
writer.num_pages(3);
writer.pdf_keywords("Keyword1, Keyword2");
writer.description([(None, "Description")]);
writer.date([DateTime::date(2021, 11, 06)]);

let mut colors = writer.colorants();
colors.add_colorant().swatch_name("Red");
colors.add_colorant().swatch_name("Green");
drop(colors);

writer.creator_tool("xmp-writer 0.2.0");

println!("{}", writer.finish(None));
