Desktop uploader self-starting script

  • Is there a script, way to automate the process …

  • After manual preparing the uploader (log in, select folder ect) can it be set that is starts/run @ a select time (like after midnight, less traffic and 50% reduction on traffic amount)
    and when first pass (making the logs) is done goes to the upload phase, now it stops waiting for the click to upload.

I’d like to support this request.

The command line uploader is ideal for automating uploads. I have this setp up as an alias under Linux:

alias MAPILLARY_UPLOAD='mapillary_tools process_and_upload --advanced --import_path . --user_name <USERNAME> --interpolate_directions --verbose --cutoff_distance 200 --cutoff_time 10 --duplicate_distance 0.5 --duplicate_angle 10'

Then all I do is change to the parent directory of the images and type MAPILLARY_UPLOAD and it automatically adds the compass direction to the photos (I capture with a GoPro that has a GPS but no compass/magnetometer) and uploads. This will automatically traverse directories below the current directory and doesn’t require entering a password after the first time it has been run.

On Linux cron could be used to automatically upload at a set time.

Thank this will help linux users.
I am working with windows 10 … and not experience with programming language en command lines. The info on help page is overwhelmed for newbies.

Hey Jakka,
I can help you set things up if you like. I use the command line on windows. You can always re-use the same command, so it’s hard the first time, and then afterwards it’s just copy-paste
