Puppet module to deploy and manage Thumbor.


  • A supported version of Puppet
  • A platform/distribution where Python 3.8+ is readily available
  • Only Thumbor 7+ is supported
  • EPEL repositories on RHEL-based distributions


Basic usage

Install Thumbor in your environment:

class { 'thumbor':
  ports        => [ '8000' ],
  security_key => 'AAAAABBBBCCCCC111112222233333',

Next run a simple test on the same machine to verify that Thumbor is working as expected:

curl -v http://localhost:8000/unsafe/200x200/

It is also supported to run multiple instances and to customize various installation parameters:

class { 'thumbor':
  config       => {
    'AUTO_WEBP'               => true,
  listen       => '',
  ports        => [ '8000', '8001', '8002' ],
  security_key => 'AAAAABBBBCCCCC111112222233333',
  version      => '7.0.9',

Python venv

It is possible to run Thumbor in a Python venv and configure various aspects of the Python installation:

class { 'thumbor':
  manage_python  => true,
  ports          => [ '8000' ],
  python_config  => {
    version => 'python3',
    pip     => 'present',
    dev     => 'present',
    venv    => 'present',
  security_key   => 'AAAAABBBBCCCCC111112222233333',
  update_enabled => true,
  venv_path      => '/opt/thumbor_venv',

This configuration will also automatically update the Python venv to the specified version (if necessary).


Additional Thumbor plugins may also be installed via PIP:

class { 'thumbor':
  plugins => [ 'opencv-python', 'tc_aws', 'thumbor_spaces' ],

Updating Thumbor

When using the default configuration, the module will only install the currently available version of Thumbor. In order to update Thumbor, the $version parameter must be changed:

class { 'thumbor':
  version        => '7.1.0',
  update_enabled => true,

The value is directly passed through to the pip defined type. All values supported by this defined type may be used.
