cliftonc commented Oct 3, 2011

The first actual working release of the media module is focused on photo gallery management (which may actually be better refactored later into a gallery module!). This is because my wife was pestering me to build her a good site (not facebook or google+) to privately host our photos.

An example is up here: http://gallery.calip.so.

So, we need to add:

  • Generic (e.g. non-gallery) media forms and screens.
  • Hooks into content forms to enable drag / drop adding of images to content when editing it.
  • Selection windows for media to insert into content.
  • Security (this is more general really)

.... anything else on future roadmap.

2 years later...

The site http://gallery.calip.so is down

and i can't find image handling in actual calipso code. Additionnaly, a note in roadmap for such feature request.

Have any of you guys any help or started work for me in order to achieve an Image(s) module ?

I already have some sniplets for storing binary in mongo, and to handle HTTP native file transfert with express.

Where is there a link to gallery.calip.so? I ported the calip.so site to nodejitsu, but I might be missing pieces. Recently I fixed /dox and /repo.
I am not sure what gallery.calip.so should point to? There is an assets module which can proxy s3 folders to be available as urls on the site.
This allows you to manage the assets using the assets module or any s3 compatible application. But the module needs some work to be cleaned up.
Thanks

The url appears into the present issue description.

I dont need the s3 file handling, i'm thinking about site own storage for
image, integrated with aloha imahe plugin for administration.

Have you some guidelines in order to help me to write a module for calipso
native image(s) field ?

I like the idea of aloha media. The reason I went with s3 was that I wasn't sure whether the mongo grid store is grown up enough. Using blobs inside of a database containing images may work, but you can't stream those requiring them to be stored in the file system or in memory. That was a little bit of a concern, but I guess if they are not huge it's ok. Using s3 allows you to store things like movies and such on s3 and use the assets module to proxy the http stream directly from s3. Let me know what kind of use case you have? Small images, just icons and site decorations or real media storage. Because if you're using a nodejs deployment system like jitsu or heroku you can easily push images, obviously you can't post them from something like an iphone. I think there it's a good idea in any case.
Thanks

Ok I see the point for s3 and the problem for handling streaming, it's ok.

Of course, my use case is about small contents like images and decorations.

The user/client don't want an additional service and just use aloha, drops it's image from file explorer in an aloha-editable and then it shows, with tooling. In the background, it's (can be resized and) uploaded to the server and stored in db, maybe (automatically) declined in several resolutions (optimized for several uses : thumbnail, preview, full-screen, full-size).

I know how to do all that, it's implemented in some of my projects.
As i'm discovering calipso, and i find it interresting, i'd like to add this feature here, but i guess i need a "Field" module dedicated to Image(s) (just like in drupal) to handle specific content type and link it as a multi-valued property of a Node.

For optimisation purpose, mongodb file content could be duplicated in a file/memory cache or in a frontend reverse proxy.
We talked about the opportunity offered by mongo to handle big content (over 1G documents) in an earlier discussion with @draftkraft , I think a mongo content store can work, it's just a client's choice (subscribe s3 or other cdn or prefer to keep control). Implementation has to provide both.

had a look on s3 plugin...

Thought : have a multi-valued property-tuple type "Attachments" with an attachment-type (asset/native), and other fields depending of attachment type (For example : file-name, file-data and content-type for native, file-store, file-url and content-type for asset)

You don't need a custom field module unless you want to support images as a
custom field inside of a content cistom field area. I don't thinks you want
it there. If you make a module similar to assets (i would call it
aloha-media) then you have access to mongoose and can store the content.
For retrieval you can use a url like /media/. You can add image tags
into the content to refer to them

That's not a bad idea. Make a local storage mode to store the file into the
database

Ok then, two points :

Handle media natively regarding the resource/node referencing it... I'm
okay with it

but

A single 'tag' association within the content may fit for simple entities.

For well described entities, i'll need more bindings : example :
foaf:person have a picture property which refers to an image, it (the
association) has to be stored somewhere in the db.

I will need some "Image" properties for some kinds of entities which will
reference an existing image (whatever it's container).

Ah ok. So you need a custom field type which will query into the available
images or are you ok with pasting the image id and just storing a uuid?
Thanks

Well, sounds good. Let's start incrementally :

1 - provide a native storage module
2 - then enable browsing in native storage and allow to include images
reference in content (img tag)
3 - build in a unique list of tuples (uuid, mime-type) of content/media
coming from any assets (native, s3 but maybe flickr, google image or youtube)
4 - provide the custom field providing media linking for entities

Does it sounds good to you ?
