ImageMagick Static Binaries for AWS Lambda
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Must be run on an Amazon Linux AMI that matches AWS Lambda's runtime which can be found at:
# As of May 21, 2019, this is:
# Amazon Linux AMI 2018.03.0 (ami-0756fbca465a59a30)
# You need to prepend PATH with the folder containing these binaries in your Lambda function
# to ensure these newer binaries are used.
# In a NodeJS runtime, you would add something like the following to the top of
# your Lambda function file:
# process.env['PATH'] = process.env['LAMBDA_TASK_ROOT'] + '/imagemagick/bin:' + process.env['PATH']
# This works with both ImageMagick v6.x and v7.x
# version=6.9.10-23
