Webilder is a great way to have beautiful wallpapers on your GNOME or KDE desktop. You tell Webilder what flickr tags to follow and relevant photos are downloaded to your computer. Very simple. So how Webilder is related to TurboGears?
It occured to me that it would be nice to have a place where people can share the tags they are watching. It can become a good place to find ideas for wallpapers, or just to find good tag combinations. That’s how Webilder Channels was born.
Webilder Channels is a very simple TurboGears application. It lets you search for tags, and see the popular ones. Next to the popular channels (these are tag combinations), there are a few photos from that channel. A cronjob running on the server is responsible to query Flickr from time to time and to make sure the database contains URLs of most interesting photos for that channel.
The same TurboGears application also manages the user votes and suggestions – it has an API controller which is called from the desktop application.
