Long DescriptionSteampunk—a grafting of Victorian aesthetic and punk rock attitude onto various forms of science-fiction culture—is a phenomenon that has come to influence film, literature, art, music, fashion, and more. The Steampunk Bible is the first compendium about the movement, tracing its roots in the works of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells through its most recent expression in movies such as Sherlock Holmes . Its adherents celebrate the inventor as an artist and hero, re-envisioning and crafting retro technologies including antiquated airships and robots. A burgeoning DIY community has brought a distinctive Victorian-fantasy style to their crafts and art. Steampunk evokes a sense of adventure and discovery, and embraces extinct technologies as a way of talking about the future. This ultimate manual will appeal to aficionados and novices alike as author Jeff VanderMeer takes the reader on a wild ride through the clockwork corridors of Steampunk history. Praise for The Steampunk Bible : " The Steampunk Bible is an informed, informative and beautifully illustrated survey of the subject."  -The Financial Times "The Steampunk Bible is far and away the most intriguing catalog of all things steam yet written."  -The Austin Chronicle  “It’s hard to imagine how VanderMeer and Chambers could have put together a stronger collection. Its publication marks a significant, self-conscious moment in the history of the movement.” —PopMatters.com

With version 3.2 comes a new way to handle product images. This should give you more control over the images you display.

Prior to version 3.2, you simply had to check for the existance of the product>image property. If it existed and was not blank, you could safely display the image. 

Starting with version 3.2, you may want to check one more field before you display the product image. Many API users wanted access to the pending images. The only reasonable way to do this was to add a new property named product>hasImage which can be one of four values.

If you are displaying the product images to your users and you DO NOT want to display pending images that have not been checked, you should only display the image if product>hasImage=Yes. If you want to show production and pending images, you can simply check the product>image property if you like. We suggest using product>hasImage as your main check and only display the image if it meets your needs. Here are samples of the JSON structure.

The property product>hasImage will always be regurned even if you specified a list of properties in the "get" string that does not include the image property. The main reason for this is that it is possible to calculate the image path on your side thereby saving the bandwidth of returning the image path.

If you want to calculate the path to the image on your end instead of requesting it from us, you can do this in two ways. 

  1. If product>hasImage=Pending then simply use the path https://eandata.com/image/pending/{13_digit_EAN}.jpg
  2. If product>hasImage=Yes then it gets a little more tricky. We split the images into subfolders because there are so many of them. To calculate the path start with the 13 digit EAN and split it up like this: https://eandata.com/image/product/{1st_3_digits}/{2nd_3_digits}/{3rd_3_digits}/{13_digit_EAN}.jpg

This should make interacting with product and pending images much easier for you. Look at the example JSON shown above for working exmples of image paths.
