All my photo's I take on my phone are sent to Google Photos, which I then backup to my NAS. But as it turns out Google stopped syncing Google Photos to Google Drive in 2019 so that was the latest photos I had synced. Luckily I stumbled upon an article explaining that and that gave me time to figure out a new solution.
The sync script of gilesknap seems like a perfect fit: https://github.com/gilesknap/gphotos-sync it is even available as a docker container. If only it could run on my Raspberry PI! Here's what I did to fix this:
- Clone the repository (#git clone https://github.com/gilesknap/gphotos-sync.git)
- Build the docker container on the RPI (#docker build -t rogierg/gphotos-sync:0.0.1 .)
- Run the newly built docker container (#docker run --rm -it --name gphotos-sync -v /[Local Storage]:/storage -v /opt/gphotos-sync/client_secret.json:/config/client_secret.json:ro rogierg/gphotos-sync:0.0.1 --log-level INFO --db-path /config /storage
