Hey, im a newbie and im want to use scrot to make screenshots and than add them to my mongodb. I’ve read the guides on GridFS and C Drivers but im still kinda lost in what to add to the scrot script so it can send them to mongodb.
I’m not too familiar with scrot, but if you want to use it to capture screenshots, and store the screenshot contents in a MongoDB collection via the C driver, perhaps start with an application that takes a filename as an argument and uses the C driver’s
mongoc_gridfs_bucket_t to save it? There is an example of that GridFS code here: http://mongoc.org/libmongoc/current/mongoc_gridfs_bucket_t.html
Thanks for the answer it was somewhat useful, but i was wondering if you can save all existing photos from a folder to mongodb?
