I’m looking for ideas and similar projects. Which language, framework, database, etc. would you use?

Curate and review all kinds of files.


  • File manager with tags instead of hierarchical structure.
  • Implement Both web and GUI.
  • GUI. It would be simpler to use default applications to run files.
  • Web it would be nice to self-host and allow users to access online without installing.
  • Have other fields besides tags, like dates, etc.
  • Be able to filter with an advanced search. Using multiple fields and logical operators.
  • All files are scanned and tagged with a shared metadata database.
  • By default the metadata for every tagged file is automatically uploaded to a shared database.
  • There is an edit history to recover the correct tags, in case a user messes the database.
  • Duplicate finder.
  • Group users with similar interests and provide content suggestion.
  • Use torrent under tor like tribler (?).
  • Autoseed files with the least health by torrent. If each tracked file was seeded it would probably crash (?)
  • Every user is a mod. There is a score based piramid-like structure so that all database changes need to be approved by a user with higher score.
