The goal of this project is to build packages to handle meta data for assets. The meta data can be used to categorize and handle large media collections using an improved Media Module. It also can also be used to enrich the rendering of media in the frontend.
Goals of this project
Building a meta data management for assets using the CR offers a lot of possibilities. An initially provided schema of properties could be easily extended and adjusted. Meta data would also benefit of content dimensions and would be translatable. The to be built asset meta data management packages will be optional and not needed for basic asset management with neos.
The project includes
- Providing a meta data storage, based on the CR in a well defined structure (following the IPTC standard)
- Building an interface to manage this meta data which extends the Media Module
- Automatic extraction of asset meta data when they are added to the asset repository or by using cli commands
