This add-on will allow you to browse public & protected galleries/images from a piwigo server.

Piwigo is a free opensource image server (also supports video with the proper extensions installed) that allows cataloging by different categories, keyword, & metadata. This extension will connect to a piwigo server using their built-in API and deliver content to Kodi (xbmc).

Currently supports:
•Browse by most recents
•Browse random images
•Browse by keywords
•Browse by category
•Videos supported (requires piwigo-videojs extension)
•User authentication
•Saving sessions

Future plans:
•Browse by multiple tags
•Saving views
•Tagging images (would require user-tags extension)
•Force password prompt
•View image info/metadata
•Searching
•More!

This is my first crack at a plugin, so please give me some feedback!

Download:
https://github.com/abrenoch/piwigo-kodi/...master.zip

Git Repo:
https://github.com/abrenoch/piwigo-kodi

Change log:
v0.3:
•Fixed 'Random Images' option
•Images & subcategories now displayed in same view (only on first page)
•Added paging utilizing the new 'max page size' setting
•No longer alerts when logging in as guest or without username
•Now uses the piwigo demo server as default
•Better error handling

just switched over to piwigo from menalto.
And was missing this already there.
Looks good after I set the login and server info in resources/settings.xml file.

I can look images that are in a category in the root. But I got it like "rootcat/cat1/subcatt2" and deeper.
When I enter those ones I get an empty folder?

Keep up the good work. Really love it already Smile

Glad you like it!

Indeed the categories view is a bit half-baked at this point, and does not yet list the sub-directories. I do plan on revising that, maybe even tonight if my plans end up changing!

Thanks for the encouragement! I'm really glad to see other people using it!

Thnx saw there was a new version which works great.

One issue on my second xbmc. Was missing json. Needed to do the following:
apt-get install python-simplejson

And the manual settings isn't the way todo in xbmc. Works for me though now.

All I want now is an android app with all the pictures in it Smile

Interesting.. I had assumed it was included with xbmc by default. I tried the plugin on the XBMC android app, and a windows machine so far. I do have a couple raspberryPis running openelec, which I have not tried the plugin on yet..

What platform is the problem happening on?

EDIT: It appears that perhaps you had another extension install this dependency on the machine that worked, I'm not sure how to install dependencies alongside this plugin yet.. But I'm sure I'll figure it out Wink

The one working directly was xbian with more apps in it.
The other one is raspbmc with one app now.
There should be a way to install it when your package is installed through a repo.
But mentioned the issue as more people are going to have it.

I'm happy now and check for updates regurarely.
If you need testing let me know Smile

Hey there! It sounds like the zip from github just isn't installing properly for you? I'll make a note to myself to post a more user friendly zip for you guys to download!

Just curious, are you using a beta version or a stable?

Just bumped in to a missing setting while watching pictures
ight now I have 20pics /page. When I select start slideshow it just plays those 20pics instead of all.
So an extra option to play all pictures in current folder would be a nice one Smile
For no i set pics/page to 999.

i use this version at moment
KodiSetup-20141021-e235b13-master.exe

http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/win32/...master.exe

Edit:

Your Plugin runs with Gotham 13.2, manuall installation.

I ve three albums on my website.

a) public
b) private
c) movies

with your plugin i can see the under-albums in all three albums,
but i see only in album 3 the movies and pics. album 1 and 2
are empty (with your plugin)

i created album 1 and 2 with Lightroom and the Piwigo Plugin
http://alloyphoto.com/plugins/piwigo/
the plugin uploaded pics not in the galleries-folder, i think thats
the problem. the upload folder is e.g. \_data\i\upload\2014\10\17

2014-10-17 is the upload day from lightroom to piwigo.

i had uplaoded the movies in album 3 via ftp in the gallieres folder....

EDIT

Here my Page: http://www.schatthaus-wetter.de/piwigo/
You can try it with you Plugin.....

With a Webbrowser you see all Picture in the Album Public (=Öffentlich),
with your Plugin the Folder Public (=Öffentlich) is empty.

Good point, I'll look into the ability to play a slideshow of an entire album, bypassing the pagination!

EDIT: If you pull up the context menu on the category/keyword you want to view the slideshow for, does selecting 'recursive slideshow' work for you? It seems to produce the desired affect on my end, and am curious if it would for you.

Hey Noxx2, would be glad to look into your issue! Is the piwigo gallery you linked me to the same one you mentioned in the post before? I'll look into how piwigo treats uploaded images, as I never actually had to upload anything into my gallery, so I'm not certain how they get treated in relation to the albums.

Thanks for the link too, it will definitely help me help you!

EDIT: Interesting development.. on the 'schatthaus' site in piwigo, I am noticing the images are populating the list, but all the titles seem to be empty! I initially thought nothing was listed, but by chance noticed I could select the blank items. I'm thinking its just a problem parsing the item names. You did mention however; The 'Öffentlich' folder is empty on your end? I am able to see the 3 sub-menu items (emden,greetsiel,ditzum), are you able to see them at all?

Just pushed some changes to github, try out the latest version and let me know if it is working better! The problem seems to be that your images do not have names, so I made the item labels fallback to the date created (if available), and if not then the date made available. Hope this helps!
