I love the way, Grav handles meta-information for media. This has quite some potential. One major downside I have encountered so far is that editors are able to upload media to pages very easily. But they have to use FTP to upload meta.yaml-files to the same folder. Any workaround for that?
You can take a look at this plugin, it was recently mentioned here as well…
Haven’t tried it myself, btw.
Thank you, @SjoerdSmeets! That was exactly what I was looking for! Issue solved, plain and simple.
Good job, thanks for this.
If you’d like to create the yaml files only, you can use this batch script to scan the folder for image files and create the yaml file if the file doesn’t already exist.
test with a copy of your folder before testing on your final project.
copy the code below and save as meta-yaml.bat and change the default folder and follow the prompts.
