[Bug 254099] New: Scan/refresh collection with a script in commandline

           Summary: Scan/refresh collection with a script in commandline
           Product: digikam
           Version: 1.4.0
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: [hidden email]
        ReportedBy: [hidden email]


Version:           1.4.0
OS:                Linux

Digikam is excellent for sharing a remote collection between computers, with
photos hosted on a central server (and using a common MySQL database).

The only drawback of such setup is that scanning the whole collection from a
remote computer is very slow over network (also it sometimes crashes on windows
clients).

This issue could be fixed by providing a command-line argument for
scanning/refreshing the collection.

- the local scan would be way faster from the server itselfs
- it would be possible to planify a cron for automatically scanning the
collection. That way, clients woudln't have to scan/refresh collection
themselves. The collection would be always up-to-date!

That would be awesome! How hard would it be to implement?

Reproducible: Didn't try

>  How hard would it be to implement?

a) Server provides an X.org connection: Pretty straightforward
b) Server does not run X.org, but provides X/QtGui libraries to link: Would
need a separate main()/executable using only QCoreApplication. Would need to
check if any backend stuff accesses QtGui (QPixmaps etc.). Should work though.
c) Only QtCore available: Major restructuring needed. Really, no.
