sappho, an s3-powered web photo album
sappho is web photo album software, programmed using
, and released under
the bsd license
sappho is unique because it uses
amazon web services'
simple storage service
(s3) to store all of the image files. this removes the burden
of storage and delivery from your servers, and it also provides
a nice backup solution for your image files.
sappho does still rely on a php and mysql server to generate
and serve dynamic content. sappho features exif ripping and
includes an rss feed. images are organized into two
tiers—collections and sets.
integration with s3
sappho uses the s3 php class
coded by don schonknecht, for which i'm very grateful.
currently, you must upload your photos manually to s3. you'll
store two different sizes of each image—a thumbnail and a
web-viewable size. for more information on getting your images
into s3, click here
