If the old server is still up, we can do #62. Otherwise it's a matter of hooking up our tile converter to the existing URL/ID mapping (which will probably include #60). We can do this before we hook up the database stuff necessary to support new URL/ID mappings.

This is a popular request on:

#90 has a list of missing images from one user.

Another missing image (mentioned on the mailing list):

Presumably we can also find additional missing images by examining the logs.

Issue #62 has one queued ID from a user: http://zoom.it/JzGm

And this was a little snippet I came up with for searching our logs:

# on the server, as root, at /var/log/zoomhub
$ egrep 'GET /\w+ ' zoomhub.snapshot02.log | cut -d' ' -f11 | cut -c2- | sort | uniq -d > logs-view-ids.txt

This only gets view page IDs (not embed or API requests, and not by URL), but maybe that's good enough for now.

Agreed. Once we have the ability to generate and upload tiles, and we've taken care of the IDs we know about, then we can get more aggressive about finding additional ones.

@JaroJaro thanks for the list. We're still hooking things up, but we'll include your set as soon as we can. This is a volunteer operation, so I don't have an ETA for you.

@ssoysal ssoysal commented Nov 5, 2014

@iangilman @aseemk So, in order for the images that are showing up "queued", we need to supply a list of URLs to you? Could you please confirm? If that's the case, I'll submit our set as well.

Thank you,

Serdar.

No, we'll get to them all, so you don't need to supply a list. If you do supply a list, however, we can prioritize them first. Either way, there is still some coding work that needs to be done before the "queued" images will be finished.

I just noticed today that (the old) zoom.it is no more. I helped a friend set up a couple of images.
http://zoom.it/fJXi works fine
http://zoom.it/hOeg gives the Queued... message

Is there anything I can do other than post here and wait? Thanks! -- mc

Yes, sorry for the delay!

A few notes from @aseemk on what we need to do next:

For the key piece of converting existing images (which are already accounted for in our DB, i.e. already have IDs), I think it's mainly a matter of hooking up uploads to CloudFiles (Rackspace's S3 equivalent) here:

https://github.com/zoomhub/zoomhub/blob/master/lib/processor._coffee (or putting that logic in a new file, and adding a call to it here: https://github.com/zoomhub/zoomhub/blob/master/lib/routes._coffee#L277-L280)

Even with the new piece, for all existing "queued" content, we'd need to actually run it through this process somehow. We don't have an actual queue, so the way to do that is probably a quick script, that iterates over all those IDs, and basically calls those same worker methods as convertContent in the routes._coffee.

Here is the info on CloudFiles:

http://www.rackspace.com/cloud/files/resources/

Just mentioning this here to help the coding team coordinate.

Hello @iangilman,

i am an old user of zoom.it and had one specific project uploaded there

http://www.bergerstadelwalsh.com/sagradafloor.html (zoom.it/iYO4.js)

it seems that the migration never occured for this project (image). We just noticed it not working a few days ago and just learned yesterday about the open sourcing of the project.

My problem is of extreme urgency because this project is used for work at my studio and we urgently need access to it! I am illiterate when it comes to complex (at least complex for myself) coding processes.

Is there anyway this can be fixed as soon as possible? Thank you very much for your help, it is immensely appreciated!

Cheers,

Pablo

@b-s-w Unfortunately I don't know when we'll have it working again. Depending on how urgent this is, you might consider recreating that page with OpenSeadragon. Feel free to email me at ian@iangilman.com for more info on that option.

Otherwise, stay tuned here for updates!

@gasi: yes, this is the file -- I just checked and it seemed to download correctly, although it takes some time, as it is rather large (12MB)

Could it be a problem with the ?psid=1 part in the end? It does download correctly without that as well. Could I help by uploading the file somewhere else?

Thanks again, for keeping this great service online.

Awww, thanks, @alanhogan — this means more to me than you can imagine. I’ve been trying to carve out after-hours time to bring ZoomHub back to its old glory. It’s currently running on SQLite which means it can’t accept concurrent submissions of new URLs because the database only allows one writer at a time. I am in the process of moving to a proper PostgreSQL server which will solve that, but as it’s also an exercise in learning on how to write production Haskell code, progress is a bit slower: #131

@alanhogan: Can I ask you for a favor? Could you share what you use ZoomHub for? What do you like about it? What’s not so great and could be improved?

@alanhogan alanhogan commented Apr 1, 2017

Hey @gasi, I use(d) ZoomHub/ZoomIt relatively infrequently, but I did so when I had very high-resolution photos where the detail was worth something and I wanted to put it online. Asking people to download a (say) 30MB image and use their system software to zoom & pan around it is kind of a non-starter, so this kind of software is inherently useful! I am not a regular-enough user to have any complaints. In my experience, it’s perfect: Upload your thing, get a URL to send to whomever. Simple.

@tquick100 Thanks for reporting these 😄 I am busy this week but will take a look this weekend. Please keep in mind, we can only restore the ones where the originals are still online. I just did some spot checks and noticed some are missing, e.g.:

Would you mind checking and putting the originals online for the ones where they are missing? Thanks!

Hi, I'm the webmaster of www.vapor3d.punchinout.net. I need you to run these two zooms from the old site:
