MySQLfs: Automated Derivative Variants of Files

Uncategorized Add comments

One reason that I’m working on MySQLfs is the ability to bring back the maintenance automation that SantaSack provided.

SantaSack was both an indexed bag of goodies (because Santa never hack to dig around for things) and an automated-derivative-generator. I’ll see if I can convert mysqlfs to that, and you’ll see what I mean.

SantaSack died when my backups died — I still have the most recent code, but I rely on version-control to see why I was doing something, and what failed/worked before. Really, I’m a bit lost with the complexity without version-control history, and really, projects similar to MySQLfs give better eventual re-use.

Consider how something like Automated Web Photo Galleries with iPhoto and Perl – O’Reilly Media can be done in a system that understands converting one file to another.
