I’m ringing in the new year with a Mejiro update. The current version of Mejiro has a few improvements and tweaks in store. Most notably, the application can now handle subfolders, so you can group photos in folders inside the photo directory (by default, it’s /photos). To switch to the desired subfolder, append the ?d=FOLDER pointer to the base URL (e.g., http://foo.com/mejiro/?d=berlin). If the subfolder doesn’t exist, Mejiro automatically creates it. The current version of Mejiro also features improved redirects and refreshes as well as tweaked navigation styling.
On a slightly different note, Mejiro now uses the term tim instead of thumbnail. There are several perfectly valid reasons why the term thumbnail doesn’t work all that well for resized images. But at the end of the day, this word is simply not my cup of tea. So for the Mejiro photo publishing app, I came up with an alternative term — tim which stands for tiny image. This term is logical, short, and sweet.
