Perform operations on your F-Spot database.

Project description

pyfspot is a python application which allows you to perform and script
operations on your F-Spot ( photo collection.

The command-line application allows you to query your collection (tags, paths),
modify photos attributes (ratings, tags), and diagnostic problems (find missing on disk etc.)

But you can also build your own script using pyfspot modules.


pyfspot requires:
* sqlalchemy
* pexif
* fixtures (optional)

System-wide installation
$ sudo python install

Virtualenv installation
$ virtualenv env
$ cd env
$ source bin/activate
$ python install
