A web interface to digikam

Filed under
Software

Currently I have 21458 photos according to digikam's database (which are using 13 Gb according to du ). When someone asks me to put some album in my web server I hate to lose my time exporting to html, generating thumbnails and resized 1024x768 versions of my pictures which occupy space in my HD that I'm usually hesitant to remove.

Also, when kimdaba exports the images to html, it includes the associated tags, but digikam doesn't. which makes digikam's web exports be a bit unusable for me.

So last saturday evening I started a new project: Creating a web interface to digikam. Currently it's nearly done.

There are still some things that I'd like to fix before publishing the cgi scripts (like making the interface localized), but if anybody wants to know how it looks like, here are a couple of screenshots.

Ozon OS "Hydrogen" Alpha Available For Testing

Ozon OS Ozon OS "Hydrogen" alpha is based on Fedora 20 and it uses GNOME Shell and Gnome apps by default, customized with various extensions. The newly released alpha is aimed at developers and ships with only part of the Atom Shell: Atom Dock, Launcher and Panel, so it's not really interesting for regular desktop users. However, the beta (and obviously, the final release) should include a lot more exiting stuff. Read more

Ubuntu Touch RTM Officially Released – Screenshot Tour

In just a few months, two years will have passed since the official announcement of Ubuntu for mobiles and tablets. It looks like Canonical is almost ready to release the OS on a device that's actually selling in stores, and that will be the true test of the new operating system. The first Ubuntu Touch-powered phones are expected to arrive in December, from Meizu, so the release of an RTM version a couple of months ahead of time is actually very good news. In case you didn't know, RTM means release to manufacturing and indicates that a system is almost complete, feature-wise, and that the developers are now only focusing on the bugs and various performance issues.

A Linux love story with real love and romance

I feel so grateful to it. My relationship couldn't work better than now. Love you guys for the amazing work you are doing. Hope you never stop. Read more

What’s in a job title?

Over on Google+, Aaron Seigo in his inimitable way launched a discussion about people who call themselves community managers.. In his words: “the “community manager” role that is increasingly common in the free software world is a fraud and a farce”. As you would expect when casting aspertions on people whose job is to talk to people in public, the post generated a great, and mostly constructive, discussion in the comments – I encourage you to go over there and read some of the highlights, including comments from Richard Esplin, my colleague Jan Wildeboer, Mark Shuttleworth, Michael Hall, Lenz Grimmer and other community luminaries. Well worth the read. Read more
