This add-on will allow you to browse public & protected galleries/images from a piwigo server.

Piwigo is a free opensource image server (also supports video with the proper extensions installed) that allows cataloging by different categories, keyword, & metadata. This extension will connect to a piwigo server using their built-in API and deliver content to Kodi (xbmc).

Currently supports:
•Browse by most recents
•Browse random images
•Browse by keywords
•Browse by category
•Videos supported (requires piwigo-videojs extension)
•User authentication
•Saving sessions

Future plans:
•Browse by multiple tags
•Saving views
•Tagging images (would require user-tags extension)
•Force password prompt
•View image info/metadata
•Searching
•More!

This is my first crack at a plugin, so please give me some feedback!

Download:
https://github.com/abrenoch/piwigo-kodi/...master.zip

Git Repo:
https://github.com/abrenoch/piwigo-kodi

Change log:
v0.3:
•Fixed 'Random Images' option
•Images & subcategories now displayed in same view (only on first page)
•Added paging utilizing the new 'max page size' setting
•No longer alerts when logging in as guest or without username
•Now uses the piwigo demo server as default
•Better error handling

just switched over to piwigo from menalto.
And was missing this already there.
Looks good after I set the login and server info in resources/settings.xml file.

I can look images that are in a category in the root. But I got it like "rootcat/cat1/subcatt2" and deeper.
When I enter those ones I get an empty folder?

Keep up the good work. Really love it already Smile

Glad you like it!

Indeed the categories view is a bit half-baked at this point, and does not yet list the sub-directories. I do plan on revising that, maybe even tonight if my plans end up changing!

Thanks for the encouragement! I'm really glad to see other people using it!

Thnx saw there was a new version which works great.

One issue on my second xbmc. Was missing json. Needed to do the following:
apt-get install python-simplejson

And the manual settings isn't the way todo in xbmc. Works for me though now.

All I want now is an android app with all the pictures in it Smile

Interesting.. I had assumed it was included with xbmc by default. I tried the plugin on the XBMC android app, and a windows machine so far. I do have a couple raspberryPis running openelec, which I have not tried the plugin on yet..

What platform is the problem happening on?

EDIT: It appears that perhaps you had another extension install this dependency on the machine that worked, I'm not sure how to install dependencies alongside this plugin yet.. But I'm sure I'll figure it out Wink

The one working directly was xbian with more apps in it.
The other one is raspbmc with one app now.
There should be a way to install it when your package is installed through a repo.
But mentioned the issue as more people are going to have it.

I'm happy now and check for updates regurarely.
If you need testing let me know Smile

Hey there! It sounds like the zip from github just isn't installing properly for you? I'll make a note to myself to post a more user friendly zip for you guys to download!

Just curious, are you using a beta version or a stable?

Just bumped in to a missing setting while watching pictures
ight now I have 20pics /page. When I select start slideshow it just plays those 20pics instead of all.
So an extra option to play all pictures in current folder would be a nice one Smile
For no i set pics/page to 999.
