NAME

    Net::PhotoBackup::Server - perl5 server for https://photobackup.github.io

SYNOPSIS

    # Initial setup of server config.
    photobackup.pl init

    # Launch server using config.
    photobackup.pl run

DESCRIPTION

Net::PhotoBackup::Server provides a server and startup script for PhotoBackup Android app. It was developed by reading the API docs and looking at the sourcecode of the bottle and flask python implementations.

new()

    Constructor.

    Any args will be added to $self, overriding any defaults.

init()

    Create, or recreate the user's config file.

    The user will be prompted for the following information:

    Media root - Directory where the pictures will be stored.

    Server password - The password to use for all HTTP operations.

    Server port - Defaults to 8420.

    Some rudimentary checking will be done for valid input.

config()

    Read and write server config file.

    Returns undef if config file doesn't exist, or doesn't hold all required
    data.

    The config will be written to ~/.photobackup in INI format.

    I'm reading and writing this simple INI file manually rather than using a
    CPAN module so as to reduce the dependencies.

run()

Launch the PhotoBackup web service using config from the conf file.

stop()

Kill any running PhotoBackup web service.

app()

Return the PSGI application subref.
