Tools for Raspberry Pi photography
This repository contains scripts I am using for timelapse projects with the raspberry pi. The important parts are:
timelapse.py: Takes photos at a specified interval.
deflicker.py: Touches up timelapsed photos by applying auto-levelling, brightness adjustment, and pixel averaging (if desired).
There are also some tools for getting the Pi ready to roll.
loadOut.py: Copy various configuration files onto a disk that will be used with the Pi. Also sets hostname, timezone, and does some other housekeeping.
We're also working on building a Django server for managing all your timelapse needs. Feel free to try it out and tell us what you think!
There are a couple pre-requisites, though. Use the python 'pip' installer to make sure you have recent versions of each.
sudo apt-get install python-pip
pip install -U django
pip install -U celery
To get the Django app running, try adding the following three lines to your Pi's crontab:
@reboot pi /usr/bin/screen -dmS tlapse python /home/pi/pipic/djpilapse/manage.py runserver 192.168.0.5:8000
@reboot pi /usr/bin/screen -dmS celery bash -c 'sleep 10; (cd /home/pi/pipic/djpilapse && exec celery -A djpilapse worker -l info )'
@reboot pi bash -c 'sleep 40; wget 192.168.0.5:8000/djpilapp/startlapse/'
You will also need to manually set your Pi's IP address to 192.168.0.5 for ethernet. (You can actually use any value you like; just make sure the crontab lin have amatching IP address.) Then reboot.
You can then access the web interface in one of two ways. a) Open a browser on the Pi and go to 192.168.0.5:8000, or b) Set your laptop to manual IP address 192.168.0.10 (or any 192.168.0.X with X not equal to 5), connect an ethernet cable to the Pi, and then open a browser and navigate to 192.168.0.5:8000.
