So, after a long hiatus, I'm finally getting back to using rclone to copy a heckaton (a few thousands) of my trip photos from my local drive to Google Photos.
In my local drive, they are already arranged by trip, date, and camera, like:
Trip_Name/Trip_Day/Camera_Name/photo1.jpg, photo2.jpg, etc
Of course, as GPhotos does not support albums within albums, this "tree" gets flattened into a series of albums that all show up in the "Albums" section of the Google Photos WebUI. So far so good.
The hard part is that I now want to share all those dozens of albums with my wife, and the WebUI does not offer (that I can find) a way to select more than one album and share them all in a single operation; it has to be done tediously, one by one.
So, I would like to suggest a new rclone feature to make this easier; something like
rclone mkshare remote:album/albumname, which, when run, would output a shareable link to the album.
This same command could also work for GDrive, providing a shareable link to a file or directory, ditto other remotes that implement such a "share" feature in their API.
BTW, Google Photo's API call for this can be found here: https://developers.google.com/photos/library/reference/rest/v1/albums/share
So, what do you think? Would this be a useful feature? Should I go ahead and open a ticket on github?
