Just want to share my experiment ...
I love the new X3 design, I'm quite happy with it, but one thing I miss is an ultra easy way to publish pictures with all kind of devices but mainly from my smartphone.
I'm in vacation without PC but my camera can sync with my smartphone. Some pictures I've taken are really nice, so I want to upload them to X3 ... but don't want to use the X3 panel from my small smartphone screen ...
So I came up with an idea, put all the 'content' folder in sync with an cloud application like ownCloud (https://owncloud.org/).
OwnCloud provides all kind of application: smartphone, PC sync software and a web panel, it's like dropbox but on your server with your data.
So I've tryed it, not so hard to set up and I was, at first, really happy. I was able to sync pictures from the ownCloud android app to ownCloud server and so to X3 and this, only with the "share" button of my smartphone gallery app. It works well if the folder already exist!! But if you create folders from the cloud app with the YAML file, then X3 panel is kind of messed up, it should be the X3 cache not updated (idea Karl??).
I saw that ownCloud have an API in order to develop custom APP. So I'm wondering if it's feasible to develop an ownCloud APP that keep X3 cache updated when a folder is synced with new pictures or folders ....
What do think guys?
