Projects / Camero


Camero is a three-tier system for creating and running Webcam portals. It consists of a daemon, an admin tool, and a portal CGI. Based around a MySQL backend, the daemon polls camera URLs, downloading and archiving images, updating the statuses of servers, etc. The admin tool is Web-based and allows you to change most settings and add/remove/edit/disable cams and archived images. The portal uses a Python Server Page processor called PySP. Most of the HTML of the portal is templated and configurable through custom tags.
