I've been using ubooquity for quite some time now, and I am globally pleased with what it does. I run ubooquity on a NAS (synology brand) and I give access to my library to friends and family.
Here is the feature I'd like: not all the content is fitted for all audiences, for example some comics are not proper for children (only because of explicit violence or strong language, no other reason ;-)
I would like to define profiles for users: profiles would grant access to part of the collection, and by assigning a profile to a user we could control what they can access or not.
Profiles could be defined in several ways. I place them in order of what I think is the simplest:
- a regex pattern on the name of the files
- listing folders to include/exclude in the profile
- querying on the metadata of the comics. I would recommend allowing queries (regex?) on 'genre', 'serie', 'title' fields at the very least
The next step after that is to modify ubooquity so that when a user logs in, it would display only the part of the collection that fits the criterias defined in the profile. I don't believe this to be very hard, but I don't know how this is encoded at the moment, so I could be wrong
