Visual Intrigue Source Code


This is the source code for the visual intrigue project. The entire project is written in Python using Flask. All this code currently runs [Visual Intrigue]|(, my photography blog. I have kept the project small, and manageable by decoupling parts of the application into smaller micro-services. There is a small service that provices database access. There will be other services as the need arises.

Notable Features

  • Responsive design using the latest twitter bootstrap 4.
  • Mobile first, everything looks nice on your phone
  • Lightweight, not a lot of bloat
  • Uses Amazon S3 for image storage, but can be adapted to use Amazon cloud front
  • Uses a services based backend for all data requests to properly abstract code away from database implementation

Future work

  1. Look at using VIPS for image processing.
  2. Look at openseadragon for implementing deep zoom.
  3. Updating image processing architecture to be asynchronous and more scalable.
  4. Automation of deployment using CI pipeline
