Hacking the eye-fi to keep your data home

14 March, 2009 (23:36) | Projects, Toys

The eye-fi is pretty sweet. However, the built in client connects to the eye-fi manager, which hands off your data to the eye-fi servers. In order to keep my data home, I had to cut out the manager. Using the afore mentioned python script to act as an agent on my ubuntu server, I added in a call to gup – a python based command line gallery2 uploader. The script would probably suffer from performance over a choked internet pipe, but I’ve got a local gallery2 install on the same server. Now I can take photos, they’re immediately uploaded to the server via EyeFiServer.py. Each time EyeFiServer gets an image, it calls gup.py and uploads the image to an ‘incoming’ gallery on my server. It’s a bit of a rube goldberg, but it works really well.

Now I can take a photo, and within 10 seconds or so, it’s been added to my personal Gallery2 server – ready for storing, sorting and editing.

You can grab my modded version of the EyeFiServer here.
