Hook program for gitannex to use flickr as backend
Credit for the flickr api interface goes to: http://stuvel.eu/flickrapi Credit for the png library goes to: https://github.com/drj11/pypng Credit for the png tEXt patch goes to: https://code.google.com/p/pypng/issues/detail?id=65
Clone the git repository in your home folder.
git clone git://github.com/TobiasTheViking/flickrannex.git
This should make a ~/flickrannex folder
Make the file executable, and link it into PATH
cd ~/flickrannex; chmod +x git-annex-remote-flickr; sudo ln -sf `pwd`/git-annex-remote-flickr /usr/local/bin/git-annex-remote-flickr
Commands for gitannex:
USERNAME="email@example.com" git annex initremote flickr type=external externaltype=flickr encryption=shared folder=gitannex
An oauth authentication link should now be launched in the default browser. The hook will wait for 30s for you to login and authenticate.
git annex describe dropbox "the flickr library"
The photo name on flickr is currently the GPGHMACSHA1 version.
The current version base64 encodes all the data, which results in ~35% larger filesize.
Including directories as tags
This feature is currently disabled, if it gets implemented again it will most likely not require user action to enable it.
In this case the image: /home/me/annex-photos/holidays/2013/Greenland/img001.jpg would get the following tags: "holidays" "2013" "Greenland" (assuming "/home/me/annex-photos" is the top level in the annex...)
Caveat Emptor - Tags will always be NULL for indirect repos - we don't (easily) know the human-readable file name.
