tmphoto is a web photo gallery viewing application written on top of Ontopia. It was written by Lars Marius Garshol and was used on his personal website for a number of years. It was released publicly after Ontopia went open source.

From the announcement:

For the last six years I've been running my personal photo gallery on Ontopia, with a tool I wrote myself, called, imaginatively, tmphoto. As long as Ontopia was closed-source I couldn't release this to anyone else, but that's now changed.

The application is intended to serve several purposes:

- it's useful in its own right,
- it's an example of how to write ugly Ontopia-based code,
(but can be cleaned up over time), and
- it's a demonstrator of the value of Topic Maps that can
attract new users.

So, here it is:

It's a bit clunky and awkward, reflecting its history as a personal tool that originally was never meant for anyone else to use. Anyway, there is now a distribution with a .zip file, and installation instructions.

There's a live demo:

And some background:

This release has only been tested on MacOS, but should run on all OS-es.

Any and all feedback would be welcome.
