I’ve been using smugmug.com to host my photos for almost 3 years now. I’ve been using sm-photo-tool to upload my pictures and I installed Fedora 7 for my wife to use to upload her pictures as well. I gave F-spot a try but I’m not a big fan. Uploading to smugmug using f-spot isn’t that easy either (well for more than a few photos).
So I had the idea “why can’t I open up a nautilus window and copy the photos to a new directory?” That’s when I remembered about FUSE but they don’t have a fs built for smugmug that I could find. So thatt’s my new project to create a FUSE based FS that connects to smugmug.com.
- creating a new directory would create a new gallery
- adding files into the directory will upload them to the gallery
- deleting files removes them from smugmug
- Linux commands like: ls, cp, mv, should all work just fine as smugmug’s API has most of these capabilities.
Hopefully, I don’t get bored and lose focus which is often the case with my ideas
