App for cataloguing vintage cameras, lenses, films, negatives & prints

Project description


PhotoDB is a web app for film photography that can be used to track cameras, lenses, accessories, films, negatives and prints, to fully catalogue a collection of photographic equipment as well as the pictures that are made with them. Read the Concepts section for full details on the capabilities of PhotoDB.

It replaces an earlier command-line project, also called PhotoDB, which has now been deprecated.

Installing PhotoDB

There are several ways of installing PhotoDB, depending on your needs:

Configuring PhotoDB

PhotoDB requires no additional config to run with default settings. However it is insecure in this configuration so at least SECRET_KEY and DJANGO_PROD must be set if you are running in production.

The following environment variables are supported:

  • SECRET_KEY - a large random value to be kept secret. Generate here
  • DJANGO_PROD - set to true to enable production mode. Defaults to false when running from source and true when running in Docker
  • DB_ENGINE - the database engine (default django.db.backends.sqlite3)
  • DB_NAME - the name of the database schema, or path to the SQLite db file (default db/db.sqlite3)
  • DB_USER - database username
  • DB_PASS - database password
  • DB_HOST - database hostname or IP address
  • DB_PORT - database port
