The eLog library was initially developed as a research prototype and later published for lifelogging researchers in 2010 to help them easily analyze heterogenous data and complex visualization. It has been kept growing with the progress of mobile computing environments and recently its UI part is released with GPL v3 license for wider usage. The eLog UI library is optimized for mobile environment and can get easily integrated with existing Web services.

Who We Are

The original work was proposed by Pil Ho and later extended the work with collaboration with 28 researchers around the world who contributed their lifelogs, collaborated for lifelog analysis and share research results to build up an open lifelogging platform for the public. Pil Ho has been keeping the development updating the library following up the progress in mobile computing.

Linking NAS with RPI

Since RPI has a limited storage, we link it with the NAS (MyLiveBook Duo Live in this experiment). When linking NAS with the RPI, we first tried SAMBA connection that NAS natively supports but found many problems like permission or symbolic linking within a link. So we decided to use the mounting method through FTP (Not SFTP due to the speed problem) using curlftpfs. Details on the final configuration will be recorded later.
