Piwigo is open source web application to manage your collection of photos, and other medias. Piwigo provides an API for interacting with it.

This is a ruby-based client for interacting with a Piwigo instance using the Piwigo API.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'piwigo-api'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install piwigo-api


Just include 'piwigo/session' and the related classes, then querying Piwigo is fairly quick and straightforward. The latest RubyDocs for piwigo-api can be loacated on rubydoc.info.

Get the second album and all of it's children

require 'piwigo/session'
require 'piwigo/albums'

session = Piwigo::Session.('mypiwigo.fqdn', 'Adrian', 'mypassword', https: false) 
unless session.nil? 
    albums = Piwigo::Albums.list(session, album_id: 2, recursive: true)
    albums.each { |album| p "#{album.id}, #{album.name} - # of photos: #{album.total_nb_images}" }

Add a new album

require 'piwigo/session'
require 'piwigo/albums'

session = Piwigo::Session.('', 'Adrian', 'mypassword', https: false) 
unless session.nil? 
    album = Piwigo::Albums::Album.new
    album.name = "My First Album"
    album = Piwigo::Albums.add(session, album)

List the Contents of an Album

require 'piwigo/session'
require 'piwigo/images'

session = Piwigo::Session.('mypiwigo.fqdn', 'Adrian', 'mypassword', https: false) 
unless session.nil? 
    results = Piwigo::Images.getImages(session, album_id: 4)
    results[:images].each { |image| p "#{image.id}, #{image.name} - #{image.element_url}" }
