Hey ODM Community!!!
As of today, we have version 1.1.3 of WebODM. In this new version, there is a new plugin called “Cloud Import”.
This new plugin adds the posibility to import images from an external source into a new task directly. There is no need to download the images and re-upload them to WebODM anymore!!!
So, how does it work?
You will now see a new button “Cloud Import” that lists all the supported cloud platforms.
Once you click on the desired platform, you will be asked to enter the url of the folder/album where to find the images to import.
And that’s pretty much it!
Ok, but which platforms are supported?
Now, as you may see from the screenshots above, currently, the only supported platform is Piwigo. The project I’m working on required support for it, so that’s where I started.
I know that Piwigo isn’t the most used platform, and that you would prefer others, such as Github, Google Drive or Dropbox. And that’s where you come in!
I want new platforms!
Adding support for new platforms should be pretty straight forward. The platforms framework is really similar to how plugins work in WebODM. You can take a look at the plugin’s README for some tips on how to add new platforms. And of course, you can ping me if you need any help.
Now, sadly, I don’t have much time to add new platforms right now, but I wanted to let you know that there is an easy way for you to add the platforms you want
I think that’s it! I hope you like the new plugin, and use it as much as I will.
