App for allowing you to host some huge ass photos on the web.
This is basically the code for the site: HUGEpic which I maintain.
The code consists of the following major pieces:
- all server-side code is Tornado
- there are two databases:
- connecting Tornado and MongoDB is Motor
- all message queue processes handled by RQ
- the client-side browsing is all thanks to Leaflet
- with the annotation drawing thanks to Leaflet.Draw
- Amazon S3 and CloudFront keeps all the images except for temporary copies
- vipsthumbnail from VIPS
More has been written about the technical here.
