A stand alone server exist on digiKam test implementation. This one is not
dedicated to be deployed. It just an unit test.
This test tool share files as well. It do not use digiKam database. A
similar version of this tool is included in Showfoto (look Tools menu entry
to test quickly).
This is exactly what you need ?
