I've got a repository of (aprox.) 1000 subfolders containing over 400K+ jpeg files. Many users were searching there by the files' metadata using Adobe Bridge, but it has grown over for Bridge to be able to store metadata in its cache (That is per-user).
So a much better approach would be a central (web?) indexed gallery. I need to be able to add files from CLI also. Has anyone a detailed advice? I'm currently testing about piwigo (after gallery devs closed the project), but I can't find a good way of either preseed the files or add them from a script.
