Drop-in replacement for Hugo figure shortcode with img srcset support
{{/*
figure with auto-resizing and srcset v2020-05-10
Drop-in replacement for Hugo's figure shortcode as of 2020-05-02 that uses img srcset
to enable browsers to download only the resolution that they need.
The resizing and srcset magic only works for images that are part of the page
bundle. It will fall back to stock Hugo figure behaviour otherwise.
Improvements that were initially out of reach of my Hugo template programming "skills"
but have now been taken care of:
- [x] gracefully handle images that are not in page bundle, i.e. no image processing available
- [x] use a single configurable sizes array, and derive everything from there
See https://cpbotha.net/2020/05/02/drop-in-replacement-for-hugo-figure-shortcode-with-img-srcset-support/
- original srcset img shortcode from: https://laurakalbag.com/processing-responsive-images-with-hugo/
- original hugo figure shortcode from: https://github.com/gohugoio/hugo/blob/master/tpl/tplimpl/embedded/templates/shortcodes/figure.html
- no unnecessary resizes and more nudges by Stéfan van der Walt https://mentat.za.net/
- mashing together and srcset logic fixes by Charl P. Botha https://cpbotha.net/
Changes:
- 2020-05-10 fall back to stock Hugo behaviour when no page bundle found
- 2020-05-04 no unnecessary resizes, sizes in array
- 2020-05-02 initial release
