    For all who have no clue what it’s for (like me 5 minutes ago), it’s a “self-hosted photo and video backup solution”.

      It’s really amazing, it’s a drop in replacement for Google Photos and the like with good mobile apps, face/object recognition, etc.

        I usually interpret the phrase “drop in” to mean that the replacement being referenced will also work with everything written for the original. Does “drop in” in this case mean that Immich will transparently replace Google Photos, similar to how libretube replaces YouTube? That would be amazing!

          “Drop in” as in “You can drop this in your Home Screen where Google Photos used to be and notice very little functional difference.”

    Constructively speaking, when I see this in almost every change log, it scares me away. :)

    [BREAKING CHANGE]

    But I will check it out sometime this week or next. :)

      It’s undergoing massive development, it basically went from nothing to nearly full featured in two years.

      The breaking change just means you need to actually do something before updating. The software isn’t quite ready to be put on auto-update yet. Honestly the way the devs aren’t afraid to break things I think has contributed to the fast development.

      Just be sure to keep a secondary backup of your photos which you should do either way.

    For the future: You might want to consider adding a little description about what you’re talking about. Some users, like me, don’t know this software.

    After Reading the readme: It’s a selfhosted video and image backup solution. Sounds pretty good but it’d be nice to have some more general info in the readme.
