Tools for managing photos and videos
A Python library and command line tool for managing visual digital media (photos and videos) using sqlite, pillow, and ffmpeg.
The package comes with a command-line script, illuminatus, that serves as a command-line frontend to many of the features provided by the library. To get help, just invoke the script:
The script requires an operation to be specified; the operations provided by the script are documented in more detail below, but first a word about databases.
Specifying a database
To allow the script to do something useful, you’ll need to provide the location of a database holding media metadata. You can do this in one of two ways:
- Provide the --db flag when running the script.
- Specify a database location using the ILLUMINATUS_DB environment variable.
If both are provided, the flag overrides the setting of the environment variable.
The illuminatus script can recursively import media from any filesystem path.
illuminatus import ~/Pictures
The illuminatus script can export media that are tagged in a specific way. The export comes in a zip file and includes a metadata dump of the relevant tags and such.
The illuminatus script can show items in the database that match certain queries.
The illuminatus script can add or remove tags to or from media.
The illuminatus script can regenerate the thumbnails for existing items in the database.
The illuminatus script can provide a RESTful HTTP server (using bottle.py) for media data and metadata.
