New exporter for Piwigo galleries
Dear digiKam users,
A new export plugin has been added to the Kipi-plugins development trunk: an export to Piwigo plugin!
Some of you may not know Piwigo yet: it's a powerful web gallery based on usual PHP/MySQL technologies. It's a good solution if you want to self-host your photos and avoid third-parties services like Picasa or Flickr. It can be compared to Menalto Gallery, which is already supported by Kipi-plugins, even if I find Piwigo lighter and more complete when it comes to browsing capabilities (hierarchical categories, tags or chronology).
Moreover, Piwigo is built by a dynamic and welcoming community.
Regarding the plugin itself, it currently:
- connects to your website,
- lists your category tree,
- uploads selected photos.
and the result:
I hope you'll find it useful.
