Projects / Pixory


Pixory is a "personal image server". It allows you to store your photos on your own PC and access them, compose them into albums, and share them anywhere on the Internet. It presents a standard Web interface through which you can browse and organize your photos. All user-entered album data is stored in XML. Pixory displays image metadata such as the EXIF information embedded in image files by most digital cameras and scanners.

    Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in which selecting any of the arrow buttons on the "Photo Info" page takes you to the "Page Text" page for a different photo, instead of taking you to the "Photo Info" page for a different photo. It also fixes the fact that the contact selector in the Album Invitor doesn't do anything when you hit "continue". Pixory now runs on Java/JRE 1.5. Support was added for multiple Pixory instances in the same container. Pixory now uses Hibernate 3.1.2.

            Great work!
            Thanks for this excellent, powerful and simple app. I'm not
            sure where to put feature requests, but here's one: a
            'generate static' button that generates a static copy of the
            server, so that no java server is needed. After all, most of
            the time I leave the gallery unmodified, and once an album
            is generated, I leave it alone.

            I suppose this could be done by recursively wgetting a copy
            of the server output, not sure.

            Except for some minor bugs (its beta) excellent software all around

            Tighter integration with iPhoto will have to wait until the project is open sourced-- I just don't have enough time to personally pursue all worthwhile enhancements to Pixory. I would like to have Pixory open source by the end of 2004.

            Yes! Just the other day I was wishing I had that feature. It's on my todo list now.

            Global configuration data is stored in a database (HSQLDB) that is embedded within Pixory. On OS X, that database is located at: ~/.pixory/data (where ~ is your home directory).

            %And where is the

            > album configuration data stored (with

            > the image texts)?

            Pixory creates a .album subdirectory in each Album directory. Inside that .album subdirectory is a xxx.alb file, where xxx is a large, random, sequence number. The .alb file is an XML file that contains all of the per-album content, such as captions, narrative, and sharing settings.
