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.

Examples

The code

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
  • Amazon S3 and CloudFront keeps all the images except for temporary copies
  • vipsthumbnail from VIPS

More has been written about the technical here.
