Pygmyfoto Update

Although I haven’t mentioned Pygmyfoto lately on this blog, I keep tinkering with the application in my spare time. So I thought I’d post a brief update on my progress.


  • The most important news is that Pygmyfoto now can handle single quotes in titles and descriptions. I’m still trying to figure out how to implement escaping for quotes, though.
  • The application now properly processes empty EXIF values (useful for publishing scanned images).
  • Global settings have been moved to the separate config.php file, which makes it more convenient to tweak Pygmyfoto.
  • As you can see from the screenshot, Pygmyfoto now features not a no-frills star rating system based on a simple PHP script.
  • Pygmyfoto is now able to log basic visitor info (IP address, visited page, and date/time) in the ip.log file. You can think of it as a poor man’s web stats solution.
  • Finally, I’ve added rudimentary support for RSS: the rss.php script automatically generates an RSS feed for Pygmyfoto. The script is far from perfect, but it’s a start.

As always, you can download the latest release of Pygmyfoto from the project’s GitHub repository. You might also want to drop by to my own Pygmyfoto instance running on Raspberry Pi.
