The simplest PhotoBackup server, made with bottle
# The Python PhotoBackup server implementation
The Python3 implementation of PhotoBackup server, made with [bottle](http://bottlepy.org/). It follows the [official API](https://github.com/PhotoBackup/api/blob/master/api.raml), currently in [version 2](https://github.com/PhotoBackup/api/releases/tag/v2).
Install through [PyPI](https://pypi.python.org/pypi):
pip install photobackup_bottle
Then run the installer, which asks for the directory to save your pictures to and the server password:
The script looks for the directory to be writable by the usual www-data user. It fails gracefully if it is not, just warning you to make it work properly. This step creates a .photobackup file in the user’s home directory, containing:
- BindAddress, the IP address (default is 127.0.0.1) ;
- MediaRoot, the directory where the pictures are written in ;
- Password, the SHA-512 hashed password ;
- PasswordBcrypt, a Bcrypt-ed version of your SHA-512 hashed password ;
- Port, the port (default is 8420).
Launch the server with:
By default, it runs on host 127.0.0.1, port 8420 and reloads automatically.
To put in production, use [Nginx](http://nginx.org/) to bind a sever name to http://127.0.0.1:8420.
