Hi Gilles

This functionality is currently available via Kipi plugins. What does that
mean for the future of these plugins? Do you intend to abandon the Kipi
interface(which would be a pity)? I'd like to know your plans since I added
some (not yet published) functionality to the Smugmug export plugin (export

> Hi all,
> Web Service tools come to digiKam core 6.0.0 step by step.
> Currently we have all O2 ported tools :
> - DropBox
> - Flickr
> - ImgUr
> Code arrive in core/utilities/assistants/webservices/
> We have stand alone test tools in core/tests/exporttools
> More code are written in core/utilities/assistants/webservices :
> * wizard/ is the new wizard dialog common to all tools.
> * manager/ will include the low level talker/uploader classes and helpers
> to base web service classes
> The new wizard dialog is not yet used. Low level web services classes must
> be ported to the new common API not yet yet written. I need a student while
> this summer for this task.
> My plan :
> 1/ port tools API to digiKam core. This take 1 hours to do. It's easy.
> 2/ plug tools everywhere in DK GUI (albums view, LT, Editor, Showfoto).
> This will take few hours to do and test.
> 3/ write new low level classes to share with all web services tools. This
> will a little bit long.
> 4/ port all web services to new low level DK API + use of new wizard
> dialog. It will long, especially for regression tests.
> 5/ Remove all tools dialog and use the factored wizard everywhere in DK
> view.
> 5/ Use low level tools classes in BQM to be able to include export tools
> in workflow. This is the most tedious task.
> Stage 2/ is a big improvements, as currently only albums view is able to
> use web service tools.
> VoilĂ . I plan to add more web service tools in DK core (especially the non
> ported to O2 that student must port while this summer). Like this all will
> be ready to hack in time for GoSC 2018.
> VoilĂ
