Photo Stats

This project is a small statistic generator for the terminal which accumulates data about your photographical habits.

It is mainly a selfcontained SQlite database that stores the data which is extracted from the exif data of your images using exiftool and provides some methods to query the gathered data and gain some statistical insight.

Additional information can be found on the wiki page.

usage

Before you can query some stats, the EXIF data has to be extracted from your media files and written to the database.

You can add different folders one by another to the database, the import will take care the files added and avoid duplicates (currently based on file path). If you think something is messed up you can clean your database and start over.

After you've added some data, you can query different statistics which might be interesting. There are no predefined stats, instead you have the option to adjust the output to your needs using the different params.

For a complete list of params and example querys use phosta --help or have a look at the wiki.

example output

The output will be shown as a bar graph when you select only one output column:

$ ./phosta -s model -f maker=ricoh -o model
Querying database ~/photo_stats.db with 29399 entries...

Applied filters:
   - *maker* LIKE **ricoh**

A total of **5090 images** matched your criteria.

requirements

The famous exiftool needs to be installed on your system.

Simply clone the repo or manually download the scripts from https://src.clttr.info/rwa/photo-stats/

To run the script, open a shell and invoke perl phosta, on most systems it should be sufficient to just invoke phosta (after you granted execute-permissions to the script).

prerequisites for running the pure scripts

  • Perl 5.30 (or newer)

Additionally the following perl modules need to be installed:

  • Cwd
  • File::HomeDir
  • File::Spec::Functions
  • Perl::DBD::SQLite
  • Perl::DBI
  • Text::SimpleTable::AutoWidth
