Now I have a nice camera I thought it would be good to have a central place for everyone to upload nice photos. No sad snaps allowed! First up is shots I took from a quick walk up my street, first camera test. I got about 4 satisfactory shots out of ~30 that I took. Absolute fail with macro shots, I might have to read the fine manual!
Self-hosted photo-management done right Lychee is a free photo-management tool, which runs on your server or web-space. Installing is a matter of seconds. Upload, manage and share photos like from a native application. Lychee comes with everything you need and all your photos are stored securely. https://lychee.electerious.com/ I would have posted some screenshots of the program in action, however they have a very neat web demo to play around with so why not give it a go. More info is available at the git.hub site. This includes some extra plugins and extensions and some useful information. Such as how to add a facility to take photos on your phone>send them to Dropbox >and then into your Lychee set up. https://github.com/electerious/Lychee Most of the information on the net mentions " MySQL" like this excellent guide to setting Lychee up on Raspberry Pi. http://www.pihomeserver.fr/en/2014/01/23/raspberry-pi-home-server-heberger-toutes-vos-photos/ For those of you that do not want to use MySQL you can use MariaDB as this guide on how to install Lychee on a Ubuntu VPS shows, https://www.rosehosting.com/blog/install-lychee-on-an-ubuntu-vps/ If you want to be at the cutting edge of tech then you will want to install Lychee in a Docker container, http://www.servermom.org/install-docker-ubuntu-server/ The feminists out there will have noticed that the above guide was written by a female. Girl power at the cutting edge of life. There is a Docker image that is recommended by the creators of Lychee available here, https://hub.docker.com/r/kdelfour/lychee-docker/ Here are a few comments by users of Lychee, https://www.g2crowd.com/products/lychee/reviews Lychee sounds like it may be a neat fit for me. So I will attempt to get an instance running in a Docker container on one of my Pi's. if I do so I will report back. Do not hold your breath. Oh and do not confuse Lychee with lychee,js. https://lychee.js.org/
For those of you that missed it in the Computerworld news, Google has posted a gallery of arty photos of it's data centre hardware and locations. Not to be missed, and plan to spend quite a few minutes as there are many photos. I am in awe of the scale of it all.
