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.

I found much to love in the minimalist Linux-based operating system, and I encouraged readers to give it a try. But that has changed.

If that’s not reliable, then I’m wasting time trying to fix the one tool my job requires.
