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.

Linux remote mounting for Mac

Use https://github.com/osxfuse/osxfuse/wiki/SSHFS and see https://github.com/osxfuse/osxfuse/wiki/FAQ to figure out mounting remote SSH directories at developer's Mac. See the example that I am using. uid and gid is of the user "_www", which is the default Apache user name. If you want to give a permission for other user, then replace those two numbers (See the example below)

sshfs your_id@your_ssh_server:/remove_server_path/ /localpath -o"volname=your_mapped_volume_name,uid=70,gid=20,allow_other,sync_read,sshfs_sync,follow_symlinks"

How to check user's id:

id otherusername

How to check user's group id:

dscl . -read /Groups/otherusergroupname | awk '($1 == "PrimaryGroupID:") { print $2 }' 20
