Image Explorer for ownCloud Infinite Scale

Description of project

CERNBox is a sync and share collaborative cloud storage solution used at CERN, the home of the LHC and the birthplace of the web. Used by more than 37K users, and storing over 15PB of data, it has been responding to the high demands of our diverse user community. CERNBox provides an easy and accessible cloud storage solution based on the ownCloud open source software, which recently launched their new flagship product, codenamed oCIS (ownCloud Infinite Scale).

Through visual perception, people are able to obtain information in a quicker and more productive way. Image types represent the most frequently stored data types in CERNBox with diverse use cases ranging from high resolution photos of the LHC detectors (i.e used for maintenance purposes) to document scans and data charts of the experiments’ analysis.

The aim of this project is to add an image explorer to the new ownCloud Infinite Scale frontend to simplify and accelerate working with the image data types.

Task ideas

Expected results

We expect at the end of GSOC ‘22, a well-documented VueJS component that can be enabled to explore and edit image data in the new Infinite Scale web interface.

Experience required

HTML5, Typescript, ES6, VueJS, REST

Evaluation Task
